For some time, i have been wakening up by 2 am in the morning and after then i find it very difficult to go back to sleep. This has been going on for a while now and i never paid much attention to it not untill last night. I woke up and cant go back to sleep i just kept rolling and thinking and immagining stuff with my eyes wide open. I dont like it and the worse part is, i slept by 11 pm the day before and am not getting much sleep which i know is not good for the me. I dont drink, i dont smoke, or any of those stuff like that. Do you experience stuff like this and why if there is any reason to that?

you may actually have insomnia. The causes could be that you are bothered by a problem that your mind is left uneasy so you tend to be awake. You may also try drinking a glass of milk before going to sleep because it might help.

I started doing that when I was pregnant with my first baby. You'd get up to do the usual middle of the night trip to the bathroom and then I couldn't get back to sleep whatsoever. So then I just hop on line an hour or two OR do something constructive and then try to sleep again for a few more hours. I do that off and on. But you know I'd rather just get up than toss and turn all night ya know?

It sounds like you may have some surpresed issues that need looking at. When this happens I usually ask myself very intensely "whats wrong?" and an answer from my subconscious usually follows. You may need to sit quietly and intently for awhile before the answer comes.
