I went through a 10 year period of being an insomniac. Many a night I would lay in bed saying to myself, "Please go to sleep. Please go to sleep" only to watch the hours tick on my. So frustrating. I felt like I had tried everything - warm milk, hot bath, lavender scented pillow sachets...I did try prescriptions as well. Ambien worked really well but is only a short term fix. Xanax made me groggy in the morning and can be habit forming. I wanted to learn to go to sleep as naturally as possible. Honestly, what I needed was to get my head together so I could turn it off and go to sleep! What worked finally was a combination of practicing meditation, taking melatonin before bed and listening to the sounds of the ocean. Sometimes I would read, but no TV!
Hi, the first thing I need to tell you is to masturbate yourself every time you can't sleep. If you didn't' like abusing yourself, keep that way you are. Did you ever realised you're someone special? Being not able to sleep is actually not an abnormal phenomenon. Forget what the medicine world had to say. Once again, you're a child blessed with fire burning energy. It lies beneath you but did not realised for the warrior way was forgotten. Just do whatever you want regardless of gaining surplus amount of sleep. Follow the beat of your heart and sleepiness will eventually follow.
Putting my mind completely blank an closing my eyes will make me fall asleep immediately.
That's what my husband does. You are very lucky/blessed. I would give anything to just say it's bedtime! Shut down! But it doesn't work that way for me and never has. Even as a baby my biological parents had to go thru hell to finally get me asleep.
