    I sleep very little and when i do it is only a few hours at maximun , i am going to miss classes again because my mind and body are going to be complete and utter mush , eating feels like a chore , pretty sure I have become an alchoolic oh did I mention i haven't had a decent night sleep since the december holidays . I hate this : I hate that i can't concentrate , i hate that i am missing lessons , i hate that i probably ****ed at this point academically (on the plus side insomnia gives me alot of free time to do my essay ) ,I hate that i am trembling and I hate the fact that every night devolves into me waiting for the morning for me only to realise i literaly have no energy to get up . I don't even know what the point of this post is anymore as it becomes more and more ranty . I guess my question is what should i do ? ( i am seeing a councellor and got to go a CBT thing but I am losing patience and it is only a matter of time before i **** up ) am i simply not suited for university and should quit ?
    Apologies for bad writting not that i expect anyone to read this mess of a post

    Yep I have tried those they work to some extent (only 2-3 hours sleep ) but the GP said to take only every 2-3 days . To be honest I feel like crap after using them maybe i am just having got use to them yet
    but yes I have

    Some of the reasons you might not be able to sleep are:
    Drinking coffe after noon
    Drinking too much alcohol

    Ways that can help you sleep:
    Sex
    Step away from the phone
    Aromatherapy

    When i cant sleep I focus all my energy of breathing
    Focus on your diaphragm and breath in for four counts and out for eight dont rush the breaths and lie with your eyes closed, also taking alexander technique classes can help relive stress and tension that my be causing you to 'non sleep' .

    Hope this helps.
    if you need help just pm me

    I'm midway through my Masters and feeling quite similar to you... The only difference is that when i'm tired and lethargic I can't be bothered to write essays.
