Emmi . . . . AKKKKKKK!!! I absolutely hate insomnia. Sorry you are having a problem with it.
I seem to sleep better when I feel better. Either that, or insomnia 'makes' me worse. Its a "chicken or the egg" question.
It helps me to use heat or cold depending on the temp of the room (I use hot grain bags in the winter and I freeze them in the summer . . . I also use cold bottled water (tuck the bottle next to my skin) to help when its too hot.
I've used the "Thankful Alphabet" a number of times. Start with A and think of something beginning with A that you are thankful for. Then B, etc. If you can stay awake till Z, start over and name an animal that begins with A, then B, etc. I've never gone thru the alphabet twice . . . but this sure gets my mind off my insomnia.
Sending you some sleepy dust sis!!
