I have finally found a way to get a good nights sleep! I should patent the idea!
You see, every night when I turn off the light and lay down to sleep my heart rate spikes and I get hot. It doesn't matter how sleepy I am or how cool the house is. A stress relief spanking before bed doesn't work. A BDSM scene with the floggers is a waist of effort. All those beautiful tiger stripes and still no sleep.
I have tried taking benadryl right before bed and Nyquil. I have tried taking a warm shower and a cool sower. Long walks and long days of yard work. I still end up sleepless and exhausted the next day. I try my very best not to nap hoping for sleep the next night.
Nope. None of those things worked.
Ok. My heart rate skyrockets and I get broiling hot. What can I do to improve the situation? I have no idea what to do about my pounding heart but there is a solution to the other issue!
Last night, I covered up with a damp towel. Not dripping wet, just a little damp. That kept me nice and cool. My heart was still pounding but it didn't last long. With the cool towel across my legs, I was out in minutes.
My first good nights sleep in WEEKS! Yippee! ! ! !
