Bump if you can't sleep.

I fell asleep for a solid two hours and now, after waking up from a bad dream, I can't seem to fall back asleep. Even though I'm so, so tired.

I fucking hate not being able to sleep. My alarm is set to go off in 4 hours so I can get an early workout in, but I don't see myself going to the gym until later, unless I can get back to sleep in the next short while. Ugh, what a drag.

Yes insomnia sucks. I was dependent on sleeping pills for a long time. Sometimes I still need to take one if I have an early morning ahead of me and I need the sleep. The problem is often I wake up feeling more tired than I did going to bed, and then I say fuck it and just lay in bed.

That sucks ash I hope you got back to sleep! I'm a pretty regular insomnia sufferer. I have no tips though, otherwise I would be a former insomnia sufferer...

I started having this issue awhile back and smoking puts me back to sleep but I'm not much of a fan of using things to put me to sleep. Ah well.

These useless over-the-counter sleeping pills aren't working!! Damn it, why did I agree to work an extra shift on the weekend?! I hate my safety-net job and life in general.

I do make use of it, when I have to work next day I have to get up hours earlier than usual and I have to concentrate as I am driving. So I have to get enough sleep otherwise I'm a danger on the road. Because I have to get up hours earlier it's good to get a bit earlier into bed too. Which would be wasted hours lying awake if I didn't smoke a doobie or 2. Now I sleep like a baby. Usually pretty tired after my job though :P

I had a shitty sleep last night. I laid awake until 3am, then I moved to the couch, where I fell asleep almost instantly.

That is a little trick I have - If I can't fall asleep in my bedroom, a change of scene usually does it.

Melatonin usually does it for me.

 

I have trouble sleeping when I am anxious.  Often, I don't feel anxiety for the entire day, and then when I'm trying to fall asleep, I get bombarded with intrusive thoughts.  The thoughts are like half-dreams, and I wake up with a racing heart or spinning head.  That can go on for hours.  Usually accompanied by restless legs and periods of waking up and staring at the ceiling.  No fun.
