Hi wendy, I want to welcome you to Healing Welling forum. We are happy to have you. Yes, I used to suffer from not being able to sleep until I spoke with my doc and he put me on lunesta (which helps a lot). There are still time that I will wake up at 2am and get up then or even 4am but I think perhaps it is just that I am thinking of all the things I have to do and the need to try get them done. I live a rural Missouri so everything closes here at 10pm except for Walmart...not to exciting.
Before I started on Lunesta I would take Tylenol PM when I would go though those spells of not sleeping for days and sometimes even weeks at a time...or even just benadryl by itself as too much Tylenol can be hard on your liver. I am sure others will post to you with their suggestions.
I want to let you know that HW does have a link to Chat Rooms if you are interested in that...this is a message board, meaning you post something and pretty much wait for someone to reply to your post. Everyone here is really great about replying to posts it just usually isn't right away...I hope we hear more from you. Take care
Hi, I am sorry but I have had to edit your post due to forum rules and guideline #4 of no advertising. Though the link you supplied did have some very good information, it also was linked to an online pharmacy which is considered Spamming. Thank you - Elisha

I don't know if it works, but I usually find time to do some type of exercise during the day. I think I am up at this time because I rode my bike yesterday and I overdid it a bit.(ouch!) I try and have a set bedtime, that is just right for me, you know not to early not to late I like the bedroom to be cooler than the rest of the house and I put a recording of the ocean,thunderstorm and nature on to fall a sleep to.
I hope some of these suggestions help. If I can think of something else I will let you know.
