Just wondering if any you Chicks ever had to deal with this?I have had this now for ten years and believe me it's no picnic.I go to Bed all hours of the night,sometimes I don't go to bed at all.I usually function on about three hours every night and sometimes,I fall asleep on the Chesterfield for ten minutes and that makes it worse for when I do go to bed.My Doctor said it was because I was that traumatized when we lost my youngest GransdSon Matthew,I never got over it.I would love to go to bed and for once,get six hours of sleep,that's out of the question.I've learned to live with this by now.My Hubby says I would have no problem working the Night Shift.I was just wondering if any you Chicks had this curse also?

My husband suffers from this unfortunately as well. I suggest you see a therapist since I don't believe you should have to learn to live with a lack of sleep. They might be the best option for you to move on and start resting easier.

I also suffer from insomnia and completely understand what you mean by learning to live with it. For a while I just slept whenever I was tired, although lately I have tried to stick to more of a schedule. I was told it is helpful to go to bed and wake up around the same time every day. I would recommend talking to your doctor about natural alternatives that could help. My friend found an all natural tea that helped put her to sleep. I do not like tea so I never tried it. I find exercise helps me. I will run for an hour before bed and it tires me out. I also find a hot shower or bath before bed helps relax me and makes it easier to sleep. Hoping for the best for you!

I definitely second exercise! When my husband and I were going to the gym regularly he found that he was sleeping better at night. So this may be a very good option for you as well. And my husband also tried the Sleepy Time tea and found it did help a little, but not always.
