Hi cali, I'm sorry you aren't sleeping well. I know that feeling. I also take xanax. I don't know if you wait until just before you go to bed to take it or not. but if you take it earlier it might not be as effective. Also I have noticed that when I'm up I don't realize I'm strssing out so much because things are going on. It's not until I hit the covers that I realize I've been stressing. If any of that makes sense. There are nights when I go to sleep easily but not too many of them. I'm usually up until 3 or so. just to wake up again a few hours later and than again a few hours after that. I have had this problem before I got sick. reading might not be a bad idea. I used to read at night and it helped me relax. I need to start again I guess.
I hope somthing works for you.
