Ltely I've been having trouble getting sleep. I went aproximately forty eight hours without sleep, then I finally was able to get a decent...er...day's rest but then the cycle repeated itself again. Has anybdoy else here ever had trouble sleeping? What are some of the things you did to relieve this problem? I've tried taking melatonin tablets and eventually they'll knock me out, but I don't want to become dependent on drugs. =/

Take warm milk, it naturally has melatonin in it, and you will fall asleep safely.

Warm milk makes me gag, too. Heck, I gag even if it's been out of the fridge for too long.

Wow.. I think you are in a much worse situation than me. 48 hours without sleep? I think you need to see a doctor.. it is no joking matter..

I think you're probably right. I want to see though if maybe just trying to develop a routine and get some rest is really all I need and that it's not just stress and nerves throwing me off though. Since it's spring break next week I'm going to see if I can kick this on my own first. Failing that I'm off to a doctor asap.

I've been your exact position before with the studying. Try hypnotic music, I feel asleep in 5 minutes after I was wide awake. Or try not to eat a couple hours before you fall asleep. Hope this helps

Hypnotic music? What exactly would count as hypnotic? I've never tired this before but I'm definately willing to give it a try.
