    Really struggling at the moment and it's getting worse. Now that I seem conscious of it probably.

    Tonight's been very difficult. Run out of nytol too.

    Getting to sleep or staying asleep?

    Don't think so
    Was just staying asleep, now it can be both.

    My body clock is messed up at the moment. I feel ready to go to bed around 7-8pm, then I'm wide awake and ready to get up at 5.30am :confused:
     
  6. Just read. That's all I do when I can't sleep. Read until your eyes are almost shit, you'll sleep like a log after that- it's all about quieting your mind
     
  7. Plenty of shit on here to read...

    Fkn awful youngen, fortunately for me i can switch off as soon as i get in the feather (8/9 hrs sleep and 1 piss).
    If you go to the doc's they will probably offer you Amitriptyline or Pregabalin, terrible stuff, got a good friend who couldn't sleep he tried Ami and Pregab and was like a zombie for 2 weeks.

    I have a problems sleeping for a long time. . Tend to wake up anywhere between 5-20 times during a 6-7 hour sleep. Starting to really piss me off now

    A small thing to do that can help is to avoid any laptop / mobile phone use for a good couple of hours before you to go to bed

    This. I lie in bed and read for 45 minutes or so and have no problems.
     
  13. I'm same as this, I don't mind the waking up all the time, quickly check the time and straight back off, it takes me a while to switch off in the first place, not really thinking of anything but sometimes can feel my brain is going 90

    Have to get out of bed and clean up then though, which wakes me up.

    Unless you're suggesting he lies there crusted in his own muck.

  15. That pregab can be nasty stuff, bit of a problem caused by it in Ireland m/northern Ireland iirc.

    I used to have lots of trouble sleeping but sleep like a log, now. Don't know what changed. Probably age.

    My wife can be asleep within 15 seconds of turning out the light. I'm jealous.

    That's something I need to as I'm buried in my phone before trying to sleep

    Will try this with a book, thanks

    Speeds the heart rate iirc, doesn't work for me pal

    Fuck off

    Same with my Mrs, lucky bitch

    Plenty of exercise. Focus your mind throughout the day. Write down your thoughts before bed. Go to sleep and wake at the same point every day when possible.
