What do you do when you can't sleep? I am having this problem right now. LOL I feel asleep tonight around 8 or 9 and woke up around 11pm... so here I am. I checked all of my emails, myspace, groups, etc. Is anyone else up? What are you doing?

I make my husband give me a massage to relax me - if I can wake him up. I will also count backwards from 100 and if I mess up, I start over again to try to go back to bed. I know that once I get out of bed, I won't be going back and I'll be awake forever. You could also try reading a really big or boring book - that might make you tired again.

Wow you are so lucky your husband does stuff for you...still. :( My husband stopped doing that a long time. ago for me. He's too selfish to think about me.

I have ever fall across this problem. It is not good. I think the reason you can't go asleep is that you are thinking something.Ussually,reading is a good way of helping you go asleep .Or when you go asleep,you think" how comfortable I am ".

:) Well hopefully you got some sleep eventually last night. When I can't sleep, I do the same thing you did. I find something to do on the computer or watch TV or something. I learned that if I try too hard to fall back asleep, it just won't work! Sometimes I get up and do jumping jacks or something then afterwards I lay down on the couch in front of the TV and find that i start to drift off slowly.. and suddenly I can go back to bed. Maybe sometimes I just have too much energy and I need to let it out!

You are the second one of my friends who posted this problem last night. It has been a long time sinc I have had those kinds of difficulties. I used to drink hot chocolate, read a little, but not on computer or television. Sometimes I would sew, or crochet. Pray. I hope you did okay. Sweet dreams for tonight.

if i cant sleep late at night, sometimes i will go on the computer, but i find that this wakes me up even more, so mostly i will lay in bed and read til i get tired...that usually helps!

I have real bad sleeping problems and I have thid every night, sometimes I don't sleep for days :( I've just been prescribed seroquel for it but it doesn't seem to be working. I'm thinking it might take a few days for the meds to start working or something

Well, you are very lucky that you have internet connection at home... so that everytime you cannot sleep... you can just log on... whenever i cannot sleep... i use my cell phone to access the internet... check my email and read some mylot discussions... reading would make me feel sleepy... so we can say that mylot is kinda like my sleeping pill...

I hate when I fall asleep early in the evening only to wake up and not be able to go back to sleep later on. It happens to me often though. Not lately though because I've been able to take small naps during the day if I need to, but still it does happen. Right now, I'm awake checking mylot out of course and getting ready to play some games on Pogo.com. It keeps me occupied for awhile so I'm not browsing the web trying to find something mildly entertaining.
