For months, I have been on the search for a cream/concealer to hide the ridiculous dark circles that are now a permanent feature under my eyes.
I've tried them all.
I have spent way too much money.
I have tried allergy medicines. And eye drops.
I've slept with a thingy over my eyes.
Nothing has worked.
My husband gave me a FitBit for my birthday.
(I am a tiny bit addicted to the step counting. I can't sit. Must be stepping.)
Beyond the stepping, the FitBit tracks sleeping.
Which I am not.
I didn't know I wasn't. I mean, I knew I wasn't waking up refreshed and energetic, but I didn't know how bad it was.
Since I began wearing the FitBit, I haven't slept more than 4 hours. And my longest stretch of sleep has been 42 minutes.
There is no amount of cream/concealer that is going to fix that.
I have tried over-the-counter meds. No.
I have tried diffusing essential oils. No.
I have stopped screens before bed. No.
I have stopped caffeine at noon. No.
I have tried a hot bath with lavendar. No.
And now I am not sleeping because I am worried about not sleeping.
Please. Someone tell me what to do.
