I hate insomnia!

1:57 AM EST. I've tried everything and I can't get to sleep. I've even counted damsels swimming over a clam. Okay, not really :) But I can't sleep no matter how tired I am. Does anyone else have this problem? How do you get to sleep?

I got insomnia last Tuesday. Can't sleep for an hour. I had to cover my head under the pillow. Argh!!! Very hot!
I didn't know how I sleep afterwards though.

Sigh..yeah..
I slept last Friday for only 3 hours. Because I was too busy chatting with Kate via pm and yakking away with some YM messages.

This is weird. But when it comes to drinking coffee at midnight, I can still sleep. Not the insomnia though.

Try reading a semi-boring book. Not too boring though ;)

Thanks for the ideas, guys. I have used Tylenol PM in the past when I couldn't sleep but I didn't have any on hand last night. I would really like restful sleep without having to resort to pills.

Ok. Try not to eat anything in the evening after dinner, and avoid tea and coffee.

Some gentle exercise after dinner will help.

Try to do something that's not going to stimulate your mind too much in the couple of hours leading up to bed time, and a soothing warm bath may also help relax you.

If you like herb remedies...

Catnip tea is suppose to work, although I have not tried it myself.

Just google it if you care to try, I mean what harm could it do?
