As a result, I've been taking a 2-hour nap in the recliner midmorning and another midafternoon. That seems to stave off being too tired.
Katie, you might try taking melatonin for a while. It works really well for me when my sleep is messed up. It's cheap and you can get it pretty much anywhere in the nutritional supplements section. Even if you tried it when you were younger, it might work even better now since the amount of melatonin our body produces diminishes as we age. HTH

I was never a napper before. I would get up at 5am and go until around 10pm or so no problems, sometimes later.
Now, I usually end up getting very tired sometime in the afternoon and need a nap, but can only take one if Abby takes one, which is not very often, so I end up kinda dragging for the rest of the day.
