Does anyone else do this? I'm trying so hard to break this habit and I can't do it. A little over a year ago my dog of 13 years had to be put to sleep. She slept with me for about 12 of those 13 years. It was really hard for me to sleep for about 2 months. It would be really hard to fall asleep and then I would wake up for a few hours in the middle of the night and instead of actually getting up-would just turn on the tv and eventually fall back to sleep. I don't know if it's become a virtual security blanket or what-but I can't sleep without it on. And I wonder why my dreams are sometimes in an infomercial format . Am I alone here? Anyone ever break this habit?
