Default What do you do when you are unable to sleep

' Sometimes when I can't sleep I just turn on the tv hoping it will help me get to sleep .It doesn't seem to work for me. Then I get up and knit until I feel relaxed sometimes it helps and sometimes it doesn't. Knitting is good for me because it actually relaxes me. It also makes me feel like I accomplished something. However I am having one of those nights I got up around 1 and still cannot get to sleep.I am anxious because we are suppose to get a bad rain storm with gusty winds ,storms always make me nervous .I am just asking what do you do when you are not able to sleep??

I have been on several types of sleep aids for more than 10 years. I am presently taking Trazadone. It is not working as I would like. I still find myself awake at 2 am most nights. The disturbing fact is I sometimes find myself strolling Hollywood Blvd at an unGodly hour, just for a bit of excitement. Not safe ... but exciting.

Default Re: What do you do when you are unable to sleep

If I have to work at 7 in the morning, I just lie in bed. Even if I wake up at 1:30 and know I wonít be able to fall back asleep, I just lie there. I have a bad habit of reading scary stories on Reddit and Iím also sort of scared of the dark. Iím too scared to leave my bed.

On the days I donít work I take my 6AM meds when I wake up. Then I can usually fall back asleep until 7 or 8. Iíve tried taking my meds when I wake up really early on the days I have to work and then going back to sleep and itís just been a disaster every time. I am too tired when my alarm goes off and I either can barely take a shower, pass out in the shower, or end up calling in or leaving work early due to exhaustion.
