Anyone know anything that helps with this?
Been trying the getting hammered till I pass out but it ain't working!
you can get it from thailand
I just exercise or listen to Yesterday In Parliament on R4 - these cures do work I find, along with being knocked out cold by a hardy punch
got up and did Yoga in the living room at 3.30am!
My housemate things I'm mad
that made me laugh.
I think it is a crying shame that all over the counter medicines these days are non-drowsy. I don't want to use heavy machinery, I just want to sleep.
all i can say is drinking lots and staying up until about 3 o'clock was the only thing guaranteed to work.
get lean! didnt htink anyone else in the world used this expression!!!
be really bad. I'd not sleep, then worry that I wasn't sleeping, then consequently become even more insomniac-iacal (or something).
Now I just think if I'm not going to sleep I may as well do something productive like read, or write letters - takes my mind of the fact that I'm not asleep, and then before I (don't) know it, I'm asleep.
cannabis will work better but you won't be able to get up.
I suggest more exercise during the day or something
that I'll get some sleep!
Before bed, drink something like a cup of hot milk... Or Valerium tea. Or Cammomile tea. Try and do things before bed that are really relaxing, like a hot bath or something. If you wake in the middle of the night, try not to stimulate yourself with tv, exercise, or reading... just stay calm, and if you can't sleep, then another cup of Valerium.
Sometimes, tho, we don't need as much sleep at certain tims of year as we think, so maybe your body clock is telling you that you are ok???
Hope it's not stress - I had insomnia once badly through stress.. it ain't fun.
Go to a health shop and get herbal teas and some kind of additional remedy.
any stimulant at that time is not great.. and regular bedtimes habits too.
I sound like Grandma Rose today, don't I?
You are very good at theis Auntie Rose!
just be prepared for lots of lonely sleepless men calling you up in the middle of the night asking for "advice".
or propylene across your eyes?
