Getting Good Sleep without medication...Help!

Posted by Janice on October 24, 1999, at 19:57:13

I've been struggling my whole life trying to get to bed (and of course fall asleep) on time, and trying to get out of bed on time. I believe my circadian rhythm is pretty typical of someone with mental illness. Currently, I'm taking 1 mg of Ativan at night to get to sleep; which I would like to quit because I've heard it could be a contributing factor to depression (can't risk that).

So please let me know of any good tips you have for getting out of bed in the morning. So far for me, the only thing that gets me out of bed in the morning and moving at a decent pace is a job; which I don't have right now. Plus, I have never been able to get out of bed early and quickly on the week-ends, even when I do have a job.

Any tricks that you use to get yourself sleepy for bed other than medication.

If you use medications to go to bed, are some better than others, i.e., wouldn't contribute to depression (I don't worry about addiction).

Thanks once again for all your help.
Still feeling ugly, Janice. (but working on it)
