Sleeping all the time is very normal. Grief is very, very tiring. And sleeping is also a way to avoid having to face our feelings...or more like a break from them. I think it's our mind and bodies way of protecting us. So don't worry about it, and also it will probably change down the road a bit.

Sweet dreams for you, I hope.

I would sleep more if I could but having two children makes that impossible. I think sleep is very healing so do it while you can.

In the beginning I wanted to sleep all the time but only could for about 3 hours at a time. Then I was wide awake and fretting. Because I work, I was exhausted all week long. When the weekend came, all I did was sleep, day and night (waking up every three hours). After almost 6 months I was finally able to get a normal nights sleep and it made a huge difference in how much I cried and how well I was able to cope. Sometimes (like now) I revert back to three hours a night, and I really feel it in my general attitude. So, I say sleep while you can, your body obviously needs is and it helps get through the toughest parts. Maybe it's not the right way to do it but I found sleeping to be the only relief that I could get from the unremitting pain.

I hope you at least have some sweet dreams.
