Havnt Slept in DAYS! - June 3rd 2010, 09:11 AM

This is the fourth night in a row where I havnt been able to sleep! I sometimes am able to sleep for about 2 hours during the day (like a nap) but thats all the sleep I have been getting for about 4 days now. I dont know what to do. I really want to be able to sleep. I already take a sleeping medication (lunesta). Im not sure what else to do to be able to go to sleep. Like Im not tired at all.
Does any one have any ideas on how to fall asleep?

Hmm, I haven't had that problem much myself but a friend of mine used to have that a lot. Usually it was linked to depression and/or stress. Maybe trying to find something relaxing or fun to do, or chatting to a friend about anything would help. You might find it a lot easier to sleep while you're in a calm and content state of mind.

Another thing that might help is proper eating habits. It's very hard to sleep well on an empty stomach or poor diet. Don't know if that helps but just thought I'd mention it in case.

HEY!! HOPE YOURE HAVING AN AWESOME DAY

Well you need to sort out your sleeping hygeen. So first of all dont sleep during the day. W8 till later on, next you need to think about when youre eating, dont eat b4 bed ,that means like an hour b4, but do eat!!, because your body is working while youre trying to sleep and releesing energy. i also say dont drink tea or that b4 bed jjust water as tea contains caffine and itll keep you up.

Also just make sure youre actulay doing stuff in the day. Like walking or running sport, really anything that you can do. just to make sure youre actualy ussing your energy. Id say you need sumin HORLIX or a soothing drink like hot chocolate they always help xD

Hope i helped xx

Thank you! I never even thought of maybe Im not doing enough during the day. I have been feeling kinda down and havnt been doing too much lately so maybe that has something to do with it. I will have to make a habit of doing something active during the day to see if that helps. Im just worried because when I used to be really active, I would still have similar issues. But I will try some different things out and see from there. I wish sleeping was just easier haha.

I have the same problem. Because im Bi polar i have serious issues motevating myself to do stuff xD but if you work during the day you should wear out your energy

Also Try to keep track of the food youre eating because if youre taking to much energy in youll be restless due to too much energy b4 bed i also find doing somthing nice b4 bed helps me realx like a BATH which will clam you down

So try to keep busy hunny xx
