Advice & Tips
I have been able to pinpoint certain dietary triggers such as caffeine, cigarette smoke (even second hand), dairy, alcohol (to include "light" alcoholic beverages), and soda. I also noticed that if I keep a regular bedtime schedule, even if I can't sleep, my body has learned to rest and relax during the time I am prone and I am able to last longer throughout the following day. My family has been a big support throughout all of this. I highly recommend setting up a good support system before making drastic life changes. It's difficult to do alone.
