I wish I could nap like a cat....

There's not much worse than not being able to sleep, especially when you are sooo tired you don't have the energy to do anything but sleep!


I've tried:
At the moment I'm dealing with it by reading until my eyes can't stay open a moment longer! My routine gets back to normal for a week or so, then out of the blue, there it is again!.. Erggg...

I've exhausted my list of ideas and feel I'm going to be stuck with this for the time being....

Anyone else suffer? Any tips or tricks I've not tried yet? Help!

I've tried:
  • Warm baths
  • Hot milk
  • Stinky lavender oils (which do nothing more than make me feel a bit sick!)
  • Herbal pills and prescribed pills
  • Soothing music

  • I suffer also, mainly from the pain keeping me awake. like tonight. i dont like pain meds so i suffer lol anyway I fall asleep when I watch a dvd on my tv. it is something quiet and kinda boring and something i have seen so many times i just fall right to sleep. I have different movies for different levels of cant sleep. the worst level being a 10 and my hubby brings out 2010 a space odyssey and before the opening credits are even over I am out like a light. on other nights I watch the dvds of sg1 and fall asleep. I figure it keeps my brain in a story line I know and I can enter into rem. otherwise I feel the pain and it keeps me from falling into a deep rem sleep.

  • Hey there!
    Do you get up at a fixed time every day? If you're not already doing this, I can say that it helped me a lot. Every day, weekends, weekdays, the same time. Get's your inner clock in line.

    I hope you'll find some rest!
    Best, Eva
