    Can't sleep.

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Heather Louise, Aug 12, 2007.

    every night now for the pas couple of weeks i have been taking hours to fall alseep on a night, just lying awake, staring at the ceiling, wishing sleep would come. and then, when i finally get to sleep, i have been waking up at between half 5 and 6 'o' clock, every morning!! it is driving me mental. so that is why, at not even 7 'o' clock, i am posting this, to occupy my time. :D

    Don't use chloroform, it gives people headaches. Use ether instead.

    Or a mallet to the head. But that might not be healthy either.

    But you might subconciously be stressed about something. If you are stressed or upset, it can lead to odd sleep patterns.

    They aren't very fun. It happens to me everynow and then too!

    Heather I know what you are going through. I never sleep either, except that week I was away and yeah lol
    But seriously I only get a few hours sleep a night and can't find anything to cure it. I don't resort to pills cause I DO NOT TAKE PILLS AT ALL!
    when I move out of this town I am sure I will sleep better. This town is my main stress to be honest!!!

    I'm currently listening to Trouble Sleeping by Corinne Bailey Rae... but I've been having a hard time sleeping as well. I need to chill out with some aroma candles, relaxing music, and finally get a full night of sleep instead of my fragmented rest.

    well, i cant rally help u on getting to sleep, i have quite the sleeping troubles myself, especially having not slept for well over a week, but for me the only way i can seriously get myself to sleep is to consume very very large amounts of caffeine, caffeine does the opposite to me than it does to most ppl, it will put me to sleep, it tires me out, it never even wakes me up, so yea, idk how u r with caffiene, but try consuuming a large amount of it, maybe it wil tire u out too lol :D
    good luck with sleeping :D
