If this continues for more than two weeks, a doctor can (and probably would) give you a sleeping aid to essentially reset your body's clock.
With that said, I develop mild insomnia every summer. As the days are long and the nights short, I sleep very little in the summer. At first it affects my day-to-day life but I adjust and live without much sleep. The opposite occurs in the Fall and Winter-- long nights and short days, I'm sleepy all the time. I'm told it is part of seasonal affective depressive disorder-- though I don't think I have that.
Consequently, I live close to Denver and find it one of the hardest places to sleep because of the very low relative humidity. Not many people have to sleep with a humidifier in the summer as well as the colder heating months. I've weened myself off the humidifier by drinking a lot of water. As for the insomnia-- I exercise a lot. That usually does it for me.
I have been awake (maybe 1-2 hours of sleep total) for about
40 hours. I went on a business trip to Denver and since I got back I cannot sleep. And I had a very hard time sleeping while in Denver. I feel exhausted but as soon as I lay down it's like a bolt of energy hits me. I kind of feel like I'm going crazy. My brain is just spinning and spinning. Do any of you have remedies for this?
I've never had a hard time sleeping. I've tried benedryl, cough syrup, a glass of wine, reading, laying in the sun, (this almost always makes me tired) and chamomile tea. But NOTHING Is working. I leave on Monday for my first trip to Vegas and God knows I won't be able to sleep there so I need to sleep from about
now until Monday afternoon if possible.
