I try and go for a walk outside everyday if possible & keep busy with chores at home & watch a lot of Netflix.My body is exhausted but my brain seems to be active all the time are let u know how I am when r finished the short course of pills it drives me mad not being able to sleep ..I get really jealous of people who can fall asleep just like that ..but I did got told as we get older we need less sleep & with fibromyalgia it causes sleep disturbances..never ending circle .
