    This story really puts my heart at ease. I stopped being able to sleep due to anxiety and hormone changes in my body which are now being addressed by my ND. I have been cycling on an off Lorazapam and Lunesta and Ambian for almost 5 months now and I want off the meds! MY ND has me playing with some PharmaGaba right now and the doctor from sleep study tells me I cannot go to bed until 1 AM every night. I get 5-7 hours of sleep and feel unrested. Luckily, my sleep study shows that my brain waves are completely normal under medication. The questions I have is when do I start tapering off? Should I wait until my hormones get balanced? I just started seeing a cognitive behavioral therapist two weeks ago and I think this is good for me. I would love more advice and insight though to getting myself back to a normal state of wellbeing and sleep. On a closing note, I had an amazing experience a few weeks ago when a friend did some Reiki for me at my house and I fell asleep without meds that night! AMAZING! I haven’t been able to repeat it myself unfortunately.
