Insomnia- WHY??

Posted by arora on September 2, 2007, at 20:57:34

I hate it- absolutely hate it.
I am wide awake even though I am SO exhausted.
Can't sleep- if I try I will lie there awake for hours.
I've tried every trick in the book- my subconscious just doesn't want me anywhere near it! (sigh) I've been like this since I was a child- it's weird, I don't know why.

Hi Arora,

I've had insomnia since I was a kid, too.

Traditional things like read a boring book, never worked with me. Ambien used to work, but then it stopped so now I'm taking Seroquel. Though I keep needing higher doses and it takes hours to kick in so maybe my body is becoming immune to it.

I wonder what a good nights sleep feels like?

At the moment my remedies include chamomille tea and trying to meditate before bedtime, and I'm going to look on the web to see how to make a sleep pillow... I know lavender is one of the things that goes in them. Some people swear by them.

Thanks for the response, Poet!
