I am a thinker too. My mom always said from the time I was little "that mind never stops, does it". I now take amitriptyline for sleep. It is an anti-d, but I take at bedtime and it has allows me to sleep. I could take it 2 hours before bed and it doesn't make me tired, but it lets me sleep. I'm not sure how. I was getting no sleep because of pain and then developed insomnia. I am hoping this a short term med and that I'll be able to sleep better when I can get back to some moderate exercise.
I sometimes read to fall asleep too.
May you sleep well tonight friend!!
