I'm a nurses assistant. It takes a lot of collectiveness and I know I won't have it today. Reminds me of school.

Given the fact that you've said you're on medication, it's not surprising you get insomnia sometimes :wve: I know from personal experience what a pain in the arse it is :hea:

A few things help me, sometimes. You might consider going to bed earlier (if possible) so if you don't fall asleep for four hours at least you've got longer in bed. Having a very set routine at bedtime helps too - don't knock this as only suitable for young children, it can help everyone.

Taking time out for yourself with something very relaxing is good; have a warm bath with some soothing salts etc in the water, play some really soft music (soft jazz, classical) in the background, and read a book for a while curled up warm and comfortable. Avoid tea or coffee (too much caffeine), though fruit/herbal teas are a great alternative (as is a glass of wine - though don't have more than two glasses). Make your bedroom a haven from the outside world, somewhere you feel utterly peaceful and comfortable.

If all else fails, try a gentle sedative - herbal or antihistamines (Phenergan suits me, but talk to your doctor first). They won't put you to sleep, but they just take the edge off your nerves.

Hope that gives you some ideas :wve: :hug:

I have the exact oppossite problem.I won't feel relaxed if I sleep less than 9 hours.The ideal for me is 10-12 hous a day and I'm no kid,I'm 19 years old....And due to going to clubs or staying up late with friends I sleep late at night and half the day...Sometimes it gets frustrating but I always try to ameliorate my sleeping programme.

Some good advice up there, Andariel. Well, I can see your life is busy but have you time for sport/exercise? For example unarmed combat:hug: is good to purge tensions. I may say even minor exertion has a powerful and beneficial effect on the body and mind; even just a little walk each lunchtime.:)
