Sleep

Who else has trouble sleeping.

Always seems, no matter what i do, i cant sleep!

Could take sleeping pills...

completely mellow down...

keep my mind at rest...

sleep somewhere different...

nothing works.....(except getting really drunk or staying out all night heheh) Now im listening to Buckethead - Padmasana , which is really mellow, and i just need to relaxx.....

...but will end up watching the hours go by untill sleep.:sleep:

Have you seen a physician about Insomnia or other related sleep disorders? If the sleepless nights continue then I suggest you go and see one. I usually find that I have trouble sleeping if something is bothering me...

I Have Real bad problems with sleep When i was doing security I Fell down some stairs hitting my Spine Since then i have suffered with constant pain.

Sometimes i Power Nap for many days and eventualy i get so tired i might sleep for 8 hours.

Recently i've been suffering with Sciatica (down to my ankle )

Some things i've found to get to sleep include
  • listening to Metallica STRANGE It may sound but it works for me
  • Windows Starfield Screensaver Imagine it in your head (I Guess it's like the old counting sheep, repetative.)
  • Telling myself "if i'm not asleep by xx:xx o clock i'm getting up
  • Not too much or you'll be waking up needin to pee
  • Probably the winner has got to be nookie

Ouch Sciatic nerve pain...I feel sorry for you mate. I have a close friend who suffers from it and it can reduce you to tears LOL @ the sleep list, I'm the same as you except for the beer one.

That's not a power nap. Not too many people can do a real power nap (my mom is one of those people, I'm not), which is a 30min or so nap that totally refreshes you

Yeah agreed! I feel like total crap if I break my regular sleeping pattern by partaking in even the smallest nap...regardless of how tired I am. I typically only sleep for around 5 hours a night anyway.

I think I'm extremely lucky in that I've never had any problems sleeping. Literally within 2-3 minutes of my head hitting the pillow I'm off to sleep.

I also somehow manage to have detailed dreams within the space of a few minutes (I normally doze off while the missus is talking to me and when she wakes me back up I've already had a dream!)

Feel sorry for all you guys who can't get off to sleep tho

I must say that right now I have no trouble sleeping.

At one point I did have trouble sleeping this is what I found.

1. If I stressed out about not getting to sleep I would never get to sleep.

2. Any noise such as a tv or talking was terrible, a calming noise like the air conditioner helped.

3. If all else fails I get a nice cup of hot chocolate.
