I'd like to suggest eating a small amount of something comforting before you lay down. For me it would be a warm bowl of cream of wheat but for many it would be chocolate (decaf?) or ice cream.

And then take a few moments to call up some calming memories or thoughts and wrap them around you. I then pray, but meditation also works to quiet the mind. And then I try to spend 5 minutes "just" breathing. I usually fall asleep but breathing in and out is so calming.

I have nightmares a lot too. I'm kind of notorious for leaving 3am messages on my therapist's answering machine about the dreams. He doesn't mind and it helps me. But I do know there are times when you just can't move or think.

I hope tonight is better.
