I am currently dealing with a fibroid that is pushing on my bladder when I sleep. So, when I lay down at night, the pressure of the fibroid on my bladder makes me need to get up and go to the bathroom -- constantly. I am currently scheduled for fibroid surgery, but until then I am dealing with surviving on very little sleep.
My saving grace through all of this is the supplements that I am taking. My naturopath has put me on a mix of COQ10, Resveratrol and D-Ribose. They are supposed to improve energy and aide in weight loss (albeit slowly). I have lost a couple of pounds, but the best part about these supplements is the energy. I have more energy now than I have had in years. I feel like my old self & am amazed how well I am able to function on very little sleep. I do not do well with any types of stimulants, but these supplements do not give me any side-effects. These are not "radical" supplements. For example one supplement is made from grapes. They are really helping me get through the day right now, and I will continue to use them even after my surgery!
