I have trouble falling asleep, it takes me hours to do so. I believe it's because of the relationship between my parents and all. Pretty tough on a 13 ((14 next month)) year old. So I stay up, thinking of the bad things in my life ((it's kinda hard not to)), and wondering how things are going to turn out. I also believe it's because of my hatred to dream. They're so weird, and morbid.

I dont think I have a problem with peer pressure. I'm not your "average" teen ((when I say that, I mean my personality)). Bullied because of the things I like, and what I wear.
Thats' the kind of stuff I think about at night. School, how much I love it, yet hate it at the same time. I always try and remember someone else out there is feeling the same way I am, and some are going through it much worse. C'mon, theres over 6 billion people in the world! But that rarely helps now...
Thanks for your help, you really helped out alot

It's okay.
It's cool how you think of your daughter when I post.
You remind me of my grade 6 teacher a little...
you take care too :-)

Being able to break the negative thought patterns will help. I too have my hardest time just before falling asleep (nothing to distract you). You need to try really hard not to let the negative thoughts take root.

Try listening to some soothing music with headphones (so it will be easier to focus your mind on the music instead of your thoughts). Cognitive Behavioral Therapy teaches you ways to break those thought patterns also. Is it possible for you to get CBT counselling?

Hang in there!

I can't sleep well either... I don't get tired until really really late.

When I was younger (your age) I had the same problem as well.. just could NOT fall asleep for hours... sometimes I'd be up for two days straight.. (hopefully you're not having the same problem)

*HUGS*

Welcome to Healing Well by the way.


Listening to more positive music during the day can help with turning the negative thoughts into dust when you are trying to sleep at night.

I find that when I listen to really negative music during the day.. I tend to think more about my problems in my life... but when I listen to more positive music (Sublime, Bob Marley, Enya, Beethoven) I tend to not even think about my problems when I'm going to sleep, I just pass right out.

But if it's a bad day, I too will lay there for hours thinking about every little thing and analyzing every little thing about my life.

*HUGS* You're not alone.

Thanks, I do actually listen to music, ust not Bethoven at night. Usually Three Days Grace. I use to listen to Baroque and Classical music ((I hooked the surround sound to my tiv and shut off the tv)), but for an odd reason, I stopped...

I had alot of nightmares when I was younger. I think trying to relax before bed helps. Also (I am suprised Lyn hasnt posted this yet) you can try to drink some hot milk before bed. It helps you zonk out...she got me hooked.
