I have A terrable time falling asleep, and then I keep waking up like 4 times A night.
yep, i learned i have insomia
Difficulty falling asleep, very light sleeper, so each time a cat so much as scratches itself on the bed, I wake up, plus the trips to the bathroom every couple of hours from drinking lots of water. <br />
I keep waking up since I was younger
For like a week i have been having trouble sleeping. I only sleep for 4 hours at max...it used to be 8-12 hours before.
The last week or so I've had trouble falling asleep. Usually I fall asleep pretty quickly but end up waking up at 3:27. This usually happens in the spring and fall for a few weeks.
YES! I can't fall asleep, and when I finally do, I'll have like 20 minutes TOPS of this super restful, deep sleep, but then something (I haven't figured out what) always wakes me up--usually around the same time every night, too. Or maybe it's just my body because it hates me. Anyway, after I wake up, I get annoyed because of it and can't go back to sleep for a while, and when I eventually do, I toss and turn for the rest of the night & can never seem to sleep as deeply as I did at first. :/ <br />
I've started taking ZzzQuil at night, just out of desperation for a more peaceful sleep. My family gets annoyed with it, but honestly I have no idea what else to do.<br />
If ANYONE has this problem, or knows anything about it, PLEASE let me know.<br />
I've tried everything--no lights, no sounds except my bedroom fan; I'm cool, my sheets are clean. I've switched out pillows, drank herbal/calming tea, taken that natural sleeping aid garbage (which does SQUAT), written in a journal, read a book, stopped exposing myself to technology & other bright lights an hour beforehand.
