    How come I can toss and turn all night but when it's time for the alarm to go off in the morning I am dead tired and feel like I could sleep for a week? What is up with that? I want to be dozy and tired at 11 pm...not 2 in the afternoon, or at 7 am when the alarm is ringing. The more pressure I put on myself to go to sleep, the more I stay awake.

    Damn you insomnia....you are making this a long week. Sleep

    Have you tried "Sleepy time" tea? That helps me when I can't sleep. Alsp, do you do any excercise? Every time I go rideing on my bike in the evening I sleep like a log!

    But I do know when you are stressed that you can't sleep. At least it did with me. Your mind doesn't want to "shut-up".

    Hope you find what works for you. Find something that relaxes you befor bed. Maybe a set time to goto bed to let your mind know it is time to "Shut down".


    Have a good day.

    I've found that if I worry about getting up at a certain time I "clock watch" but if I fool my brain into thinking that I don't have to be awake at any time I usually go right to sleep. Smile

    Or you might try a really warm bath, I do showers cause I'm too long to fit in the tub. Evil or Very Mad

    this stuff is sold in health food stores. It is the protein in Turkey that makes people sleepy. It helps some people get some sleep. Or, you could ask your doctor for some help. Not sleeping isn't really good for you, it can cause other more serious problems. My doctor gave me some TraZODONE, it increases your serotonin level, and helps you sleep. Good luck!

    Yeah. These days I can't afford such fancy things as doctors and medicine. Laughing

    Maybe I could just eat a bunch of turkey every day. Sleep

    I think a lot of it for me has to do with stress and anxiety. or maybe not. I've been sleeping pretty well the last few nights and I'm plenty stressed - so who knows?!?!
