Octopuppy Posted July 5, 2011 Share Posted July 5, 2011 I don't have any diagnosed insomnia problems, but my sleep goes right off pattern sometimes. When I ask my GP, she won't give me any sort of tranq or sleeping pills (addictive personality), just a relaxation CD (wave music etc.) and some techniques to practice. Which work excellently for calming my mild anxiety, but don't halp me sleep. I currently sleep about 2am - 9am, and am usually awake for an hour or two about 5am but then I'm exhausted and can't stay awake by about 3pm and have to sleep for 2-3 hours. Does anyone have any tricks for either getting to sleep earlier, or staying asleep? I'd like to stop napping, as I know it's probably making it worse (once i'm asleep, i can't wake up for 2-3 hours, cannot do 20min naps), but I'm so tired. Does missing out a night's sleep and staying up for 24+ hours and going to bed at 11pm the next night work? Thanks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
