Insomnia

Postby keluca » Fri Feb 19, 2010 8:06 pm

I am really tired, I get about 2 hrs broken sleep a night. I don't nap through the day, I try and keep busy in the hope of really warring myself out for the night.

I have flashbacks and cannot seem to control them, I have tried night rescue remedy, calms, and I am on another herbal one at the moment but they don't seem to be working.
I wont take sleeping pills as I need to hear the kids (my middle little one age 8 sleepwalks) and my hubby will sleep through a bomb going off...

What does you do to help yourself with Insomnia?
Maybe some of your techniques may help :)

Thank you

Hello & Welcome Keluca,

There are so many different sleep remedies, but my question is...what is the cause of your insomnia? It might make a difference with the reason you can't sleep. Something too harsh wouldn't be good to take with little ones around, too.

I guess you are very tired and would like a quick answer but if this has been ongoing you have probably tried many things already. Do you have a doctor you could ask?

I don't get much sleep either due to chronic pain and I don't like taking sleeping medications. That is why I asked what keeps you awake because it makes a difference. Please post again and let us know. Meanwhile, take care and I'm glad you found this forum.

I like tea--every now & then--so I make some when I feel like it. Had some basil tea last night.... I usually brew mint tea...

Sometimes, I'll grab lavender oil & throw that on an aromastone/cotton ball or in an inhaler.... (aromatherapy)... I like mint, too, so I try to keep some of that around as well.

Take care!

I'm not exactly digging myself out of the hole but creating a tunnel to get out another way. Throwing dirt from one end of the pit to the other isn't going to get me anywhere. Instead, I'll create my own path.

Change your diet. Eat only fruits or veggies 2 hrs before going to bed.
