Sleep deprivation is sooo annoying..I have terrible patches of it at times..sheesh..I have two kinds of insomnia
1. My eyes pretend they can hardly stay open..so I head off to bed...get really cosy..and Then...DING - eyes open I am awake lol...grrr hate this when it happens!
2.For me this one sux the most... I have gone to sleep instantly but 2 hours later..DING..eyes open I am awake lol...grr!
Meds are one solution just to get back into the habit of sleeping properly..have you tried the warm milk with a little nutmeg or cinnamon before bed..sometimes I find that if I have exercised during the day my sleep improves..reading a book in bed can make me sleep, or sometimes instead of kicking the bed to pieces I will get up and go on the computer and usually end up at HW and that makes my eyes tired too after a while..sheesh it's a constant battle sometimes!
I look forward to the replies from this post to see if anyone has a brilliant solution for both of us lol.
Thank you for your warm welcome. I am timid to talk about my depression. I really appreciate the warm milk idea w/ cinn. I will have to try that. Your right I can be real sleepy when watching TV but then I get to bed and bing my eyes are open and I'm ready to go. So any other insight on this insomnia problem would surely be appreciated.
Its always nice to see a new face on the forum. Everyone here is great at listening; whatever it is thats on your mind. I suffered from Depression when I was younger (I think I was 15). The doctor puts me on meds which didn't work, but I worked my own way through it. Its not the course of action I would recommend to others but I do know what it feels like. Insomnia is something I still have now occasionally. I tried many different things. The 2 that I found worked is Lanevdar oil and (more recently) Sudoku. Thats right... One of Carol Vorderman's favourite puzzles actually helped me get to sleep! Failing that, you can always try an hour of BBC Parliament! (Assuming you can get it!)
Im glad I could be of help! ROFL
For our international users, im sure there are equivelants. I've heard that CNN and Sky Sports are just as good but I can't claim to have seen them!

Your welcome Give Me Strength,
Remember, there are always people who are prepared to listen here. HW is a great support network. Im glad I can now give something back to those that helped me. Maybe in time, you could do the same.
Let us know how you get on.
