AHHHHH can't sleeeeeep. Heeeeelp meeee!!!

Seriously though. It's bloody 6am & I'm still awake!! I slept MAYBE an hour combined all night! I just have so much on my mind lately that I think my brain is going in overdrive & it's going to suffer a pretty huge meltdown soon because it can't just keep running at this rate!! At least I hope it can't!!

 

I'm honestly exhausted, but just can't fall asleep. Laying in bed awake is driving me insane, but when I get up I'm so tired I'm all lightheaded & can't do anything...

 

Any tricks to sleep? Other than warm milk *gag*

I've even tried drugging myself with PM cough stuff, but that didn't help!!

I thought about going for a walk, but I'm so exhausted I'm afraid to pass-out cold on the sidewalk! lol

If you are still awake...this is one thing that always works for me. I think I heard it on a movie once. Anyway, if you really try hard to stay awake...keep your eyes open (while laying in bed with the lights off). I ALWAYS fall right alseep when I do this! I hoep you can get some rest!

Tequila & Painkillers. Just kidding....kind of.... well at least the tequila part works wonders.

 

Seriously though, I know how you feel. Sometimes there is just nothing that will make you go to sleep. I have had nights where nothing at all worked. Tylenol PM, benadryl, nothing.

I guess it did! lol

All I remember is how much my eyes were burning from trying to keep them open (& they would burn after like 3 seconds! lol that's how tired I was) & then I remember the phone ringing & I woke up! LOL

Thanks thomastaci22!!

Very interesting trick. I notice I start to fall asleep on the couch watching TV and I fight to stay away to finish watching a fav show. Then I'll go to bed and I'm wide awake. I get so pissed off. Maybe it's the trying to keep my eyes open that makes me tired. I'm going to try this!

When I can't sleep I try and read a book. Usually I don't get very far before I get that same burning feeling that you mentioned and fall asleep. I hate when it's the pressure of going to sleep that is keeping you awake! Oh the irony.

 

Also, I use melatonin to help me sleep. It helps to regulate your sense of day and night. Just make sure you turn off the tv and all lights so your body can realize it's night wink.gif
