A laugh-out-loud, adults-only bedtime story for parents familiar with the age-old struggle of putting their kids to bed Hell no, you cant go to the bathroom. You know where you can go? The f**k to sleep. Go the Fuck to Sleep is a book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes dont always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland. Profane, affectionate, and radically honest, it captures the familiarand unspokentribulations of putting your little angel down for the night. Read by a host of celebrities, from Samuel L. Jackson to Jennifer Garner, this subversively funny bestselling storybook will not actually put your kids to sleep, but it will leave you laughing so hard you wont care.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ As a parent with five kids all under twelve and two of which are 4. This book made both their father and I laugh out loud. If you can stand a little profanity and can have a bit of humor about life and parenting, I highly recommend this book 💗💗💗

It can be so hard trying to force myself to sleep during the day. The exciting thing is we're having a baby shower at work tonight! I usually don't take selfies but my brain is too tired for a more creative interpretation of Day 2 #selfie so here's me with a Snapchat filter 😂 #SisforSeptember

Go The Fuck To Sleep🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒
By Adam Mansbach
Illustrated by Ricardo Cortes

We've all been there --- an adult version of a children's book.
I thought it was hilarious, nicely illustrated but hearing Samuel L. Jackson narrate was classic. Check it out on YouTube.
It's a stress reducer!

wanderinglynn @daena Samuel L. Jackson has spoken! 😉 1y
KathyWheeler @wanderinglynn She‘s 61 and was raised in a rural area where this pronunciation is common. I don‘t think she‘s going to change it now. Weird thing is, she says “Interlibrary loan,” not “interliberry loan.” 1y

I really should be sleeping, but I just can't..

I really love exchanging and I am sad I missed out on the hometown exchange. Would anyone that missed out, be interested in doing one? Anyone?? It could lead to a new friend/penpal. Instead of hometown I would call it Hellofrom . I love experiencing different places since I don't get to other states much #litsyswap #litsyswapidea
I will try to go to sleep now ..

Gaylagal2 I would be. I'm doing hometown swap, but I'd for sure do another one! 😉 1y

Yup. The 2 nights before last I got about 3 hours each. Last night I didn't sleep at all. It's anxiety & panic, &I would've gotten out of bed to take a (lowest dose possible) lorazepam, but my body wouldn't let me move. Last night I convinced myself that I was bipolar, severely depressed & I'd be screwed for the rest of my life. Lovely - no wonder I'm feeling crazy! Just talked to a good friend who said this title to me. I'm off to try again!🤞🏼

batsy Those late night thoughts are really the worst sometimes. I hope you are able to get some rest. Sending you positive sleep vibes 🐏🐏🐏 2y
Zelma I agree with @Grrlbrarian that middle-of-the-night thoughts are terrible. They are too dramatic and never a good measure of reality. 💙 2y
readinginthedark I've had nights like that. I usually end up listening to some piano music or an old favorite audiobook in order to distract and calm myself if not to put me to sleep. 2y
LeahBergen Aw, that sucks. Big hugs! 💗💗 2y
Louise Sending restful wishes to you. Eventually, your body will simply HAVE to sleep. You can trust in that. 🍀❤️🍀❤️🍀❤️ 2y
Hobbinol I can totally empathize. My Dr. told me that I had to stop reading in bed, or watching television in and never use the bed for anything but sleep and sex (not in that order). I couldn't believe that I actually could condition myself like that, but it really does help. (I still have ambien for emergencies.) I also suffered from panic attacks while I was sleeping and they would wake me up. I feel so bad for you! Hope this ordeal passes soon!!!💙💙💙 2y
QuietlyLaura I'm sorry you're having a rough time! Insomnia is an old "friend" of mine. The anxious thoughts pop up so fast when we're sleep deprived. I always listen to a favorite audiobook at bedtime and it helps my mind relax and is comforting. ? 2y
MicheleinPhilly ☹️Lorazepam on the nightstand helps me. I don't even take it but knowing it is right there helps me immensely. It's like a security blanket. 2y
LauraBrook @Grrlbrarian I realize it now, but at the time, you know how real they feel, and it's awful. Thank you! @JacqMac @EllieDottie @CareBear @saresmoore All of your thoughts and prayers really helped - 12 hours! 2y
LauraBrook @DebinHawaii @DGRachel @silentrequiem @batsy Thank you, I wiped out! Still groggy but glad to actually sleep. 2y
LauraBrook @Zelma But they feel so real and clear when you're having them, that's the tricky part. Just glad I slept finally and can see them for the illusion they are. 2y
LauraBrook @readinginthedark I miss having a CD player with a repeat button - I used to do that and it helped. Maybe it's time to go shopping for something other than books? 😳😱😆 @LeahBergen @Louise Thank you, ladies! 2y
LauraBrook @Hobbinol I'm sorry you were having panic attacks in your sleep! That's awful! I just get them so I can't sleep. My Dr told me the same thing, which I did already anyways. What has helped sometimes is putting something on TV that's a favorite (Sense & Sensibility, any Agatha Christie) and that will help me doze off. I must turn the tv off when I'm not conscious, bc I wake up and it's off. 🤞🏼that we both sleep well from now on! 2y
LauraBrook @ReadsWithTea Thanks, sorry you have anxiety issues too. May have to rig up something for an audiobook in my room! 💙 @MicheleinPhilly I totally get that. I'm that way with potato chips in the house - if they're there I don't eat them. (Yes, I'm a strange one.) I took 2 lorazepam last night and it took 2 hours for them to kick in. I'm still a little woozy now, honestly, but who cares, it's a pajama day! 💖 2y
readinginthedark @LauraBrook It's hard shopping for anything but books. Good luck! 2y
mrsamandahood I'm so sorry to hear you're having anxiety issues. If you ever want to talk to someone, I'm here. I struggle with the same things. It's hard to go at it alone sometimes. Take care. ❤️ 2y
LauraBrook Thank you, @mrsamandahood , I so appreciate it. It's hard sometimes bc I live alone, no kids, and the cats can't really have a conversation with me or talk me out of a crazy thought. Hope your anxiety isn't too bad with what's going on right now for you! 💖 2y
mrsamandahood Of course! I can understand. It's difficult to talk to just anyone about our issues. It's hard if not impossible for someone who doesn't deal with these things, to really understand, you know? You're not alone, I am for real always here. I would love to be able to chat with someone who struggles with these things too. Send me an email sometime if you want, and I'll give you my number! No pressure, only if you want! ❤️ 2y
mrsamandahood Thank you for the kind thoughts! I so appreciate it. I'm trying to not let my anxiety get the best of me. I have lorazepam too. I've only taken it once but it's nice to have it around as a safety net. Take care. ❤️❤️❤️ 2y
MyNamesParadise I'm so sorry! I know what it's like to not be able to move. I have generalized anxiety disorder and depression and ADHD. Once I'm anxious for too long I can't move bc I'm exhausted and worn out. Have you tried mindfulness? Rather it's meditating or reading about mindfulness? My therapist has been working on that with me and it has helped. It takes practice, but it's something! 2y
LauraBrook @MyNamesParadise Hello fellow anxious lady! Yep, tried mindful meditation and it doesn't seem to do much for me - unless I'm away from home, which how many times does that work out?!? I'm wondering if it's worth getting official diagnoses or not for myself. Is that from a psychologist? One of my biggest "problems" is that I'm an empath, I live on a fairly busy corner and as a massage therapist I touch ppl for a living. It's frustrating, u know? ? 2y
MyNamesParadise @LauraBrook I am an empath as well & highly introverted. I start a new job on Friday & will be commuting to Baltimore (I live in MD) so that's new for me & im worried about staying "alert" or "on" from 9-5 plus the drive both ways. Hmmm if seeking medication seek a psychiatrist, but usually they suggest talk therapy first and then getting medication as a next step. I've been in therapy for most of my life so I'm use to it. 2y
MyNamesParadise @LauraBrook do you have tracks you could try listening to of calming music or nature sounds. Do you have a noise machine? Do you have noise canceling headphones? Hmmm as a massage therapist as you help your patients tel yourself you're healing their pain and as a result maybe that'll make you absorb less of their pain. Am I making any sense? Also have you tried yoga? Or Pilates? I have some at home workout DVDs I use. 2y
LauraBrook @MyNamesParadise Massive introvert here too! Good luck with your new job and commuting. I only have a 10-15 min commute and sometimes it's too much for me. It's ridiculous. I have lorazepam, and I think that may be all I need. I've been in and out of therapy for about 15 years and need to go back again - but have to find a new lady and it's such a project. Haven't tried Pilates but yoga used to help. ... 2y
LauraBrook @MyNamesParadise I do a protective prayer before every massage, sometimes I wear crystals and use an essential oil spray, but it depends on client allergies. And I have lots of calming CDs, but it's "work music" so it's hard to disconnect from that energy when I listen at home. I'm a mess. Sleep w an air cleaner for white noise (drowns out traffic). Could try noise machine again - thank you! Hope you're having a good day! 2y
MyNamesParadise @LauraBrook thank you! Also, if you have allergies, taking Claritin can make you drowsy and help you sleep! That's how long I've been in therapy- since I was 10. Docs that take insurance weren't working 4 me so I pay out of pocket for my therapy, but she's helped me immensely. Pilates is such an intense workout it'll make you sleepy! I understand about the music. I put on a fan when I sleep but i live in a quiet suburb. I can't stand dead silence. 2y
MyNamesParadise @LauraBrook you're welcome! I hope something works!! I've been preparing for the new job so a lot of excited/nervous energy! I hope things are better tonight when you go to sleep! 2y
