    Every night, I have problems sleeping.

    I spent most of the night tossing and turning, when I finally feel like I can go to sleep usually about 7 am, my phone starts ringing so I spend most of the day looking for sleep. What ways can I make myself go to sleep at night?

    1-     I hate my dear insomnia.  It keeps me awake all night literally.  Doesn’t matter how tired I feel.  It’s always there to keep me from sleeping.   2-     If I can’t sleep, I start thinking about stuff or watch a movie instead.  That causes me horrible...

    Getting Help To Zzz

    My sleeping issues began a couple of years ago. I was anxious about a big project at work and a good night's sleep was the first thing to go. I tossed and turned. Not sleeping only helped increase the rest of my stress related issues and I wound up in the ER with pre-atrial...

    Probably Just Need A New Bed

    I have been in therapy to help me sleep better. Yesterday I was hypnotized as part of the therapy and still woke up last night. I bet I only need a new bed. My wife likes our bed. I think I have her convinced to get a new bed.

    Trying To Sleep

    It takes me forever to fall asleep. My brain just does not want to stop. I have tried going to bed early and find myself just laying there, eyes closed and still awake. I even took a note pad to bed so I could write things down that were running through my head, just to release...

    Usually I do scrape six hours (if I'm lucky!

    ), but it's always after a fair bit of tossing and turning. My mind just can't switch off. And with the UK heatwave, I've managed 4 hours maybe, in part due to the weather making my anxiety symptoms worse.
