thats so great to hear! you give me hope! I completely understand why you are ecstatic. It has been a long road for me, and I have had the help of the sleep specialist. Because of him, and even with the Mirena still in, I can sleep for the longer stretch as you described about half the time... its wonderful! I'm hoping it will improve even more once the Mirena is out! My muscle aches are in my back- I hope they improve also.
