The past few days I too have been having trouble sleeping and getting my brain to stop, I was just so stressed and depressed and it was driving me nuts. My car is in the shop right now, it was just supposed to take three hours to put a belt on, but the mechanics said a bunch of other stuff needing fixing and it's taken four days now. I think they're just taking advantage of me. But anyway.. I walked home from work the other day. It was a really long walk and took me an hour and a half, and by the time I got home I was so tired that I couldn't even think about
anything. I just laid down on the couch and fell asleep, and it felt great. Granted I was a little sore in the morning, I haven't walked long or exercised in a few months because of the depressing cold winter, but I just felt better. Maybe you could just try taking a long walk, admiring all of the things in nature that are worth living for, unless your town is like mine and everything is covered in dirty snow, then that might be a little difficult...
Good luck. I hope the social worker can offer some help as well!
