Welcome back! I know I go crazy when my computer isn't working correctly. Actually, that's why I never posted on your other thread...my modem bit the dust!
I set aside about 8 1/2 hours for sleep a night. I know this may sound crazy, but I have found that if I sleep too much, I need even more sleep. I've been that way since a child. It could just be me. But, I do have a sleep schedule and go to bed around the same time every night and get up around the same time every morning. The body becomes accustomed to that and then, when you lie down, you can get to sleep usually. Also, don't use your bed to eat, read, etc. Also, avoid caffeine after around 5 PM. That will keep you from sleeping, too.
Here is a Mayo Clinic link to ten tips to help you sleep. Hope this helps you.
Sherrine, I don't mean to step on your toes, just thought I'd add this. Caffeine for me..I am hypersensitive to it, so I cannot drink it after 1 or 2p, otherwise it affects my sleep at night. I know that sounds ridiculous, but believe me, it is true. I just wanted to add that for Starynight, just to be careful.
I've also heard, forget now where I heard or read it, that it is not a good idea to cut Flexeril, something about the way it gets absorbed. You might want to talk to your doc about how much to take. I know you said it didn't help, but it might have been because you cut it. Just a thought.
take good care

You are right, Miriam. Everyone is different but I don't know too many people that hypersensitive to it. But, if a person is, they definitely should do as you suggested or, better yet, don't have things with caffeine in them!
