    I have not been sleeping well for a while now. I feel sleepy but cannot sleep. I know why I cannot sleep. I am just so stressed about moving to a new place, new school, new friends and so on.

    Arrrgghh. So annoying. When will it pass. I long for a proper nights sleep and not been on TSR at 3.50 in the morning!

    Any amazing ideas other than knocking myself out much appreciated!

    And posting this at 4AM: You're preaching to the choir. Which is probably best.

    Getting yourself into a good night-time routine may help.

    Try go to bed at the same time each night as it gets you into a nice sleep pattern.

    I've always found that having a warm bath or shower and a hot chocolate helps a great deal. Then I read a few chapters.

    I do know the situtation can get very frustrating. I used to suffer with awful insomnia till around 6 months ago but getting into a nice pattern definately helped me get rid of the problem.

    I think you are right about a pattern. That has helped in the last week or so.

    I find because I'm sleeping so lightly I wake up at anything. The pesky birds starting at 3.30 each morning for the last 3 days!

    Me too. but mine got worse over the years, back when I was 15/16 I was asleep most times by Midnight though tended to stay up late Sunday(though I had to get up for school at 7am!) often till ike 5am and felt sick but could handle it. I always woke up around 7am in holidays and 6am at weekend for cartoons(back when they were good!)

    Then when I left home at 17 most nights was midnight and was awake by 10am 11am sometimes never after 12.

    After I moved back home at 19 for a while my sleep pattern started degrading as my dad stopped waking me up at 11am each morning moaning at me and threatening me with a cold flannel and covering my bed with a bowl of water, and maybe once a week or fortnight I slept till 3pm(normally Sundays)

    Gone was my routine till it got worse, though often it was 2am I went to bed and rarely later unless I went on a night drinking and wasnt back till 2.30 and went to bed around 3.25am

    Then I moved somewhere else when I was 21 and then started going to bed at 3am daily.

    That continued for about 2 years till I first got broadband and started playing online games till like 10am in morning and sleeping during the day and even when a year later I had it disconnected I still went to bed at like 6am woke up 4pm and gradually got better when I worked part time, then went back to college.

    But when I moved to a place 2 years ago and got 8 meg broadband I started going to bed late again as I was up late on online games(though not as much as wasnt as interested) and downloading comics or tv shows or movies that I hadnt seen in over 10 years and that werent released on DVD or in the UK at all

    Its contributed to my depression a lot, and my depression is made worse by the fact in 25 and accomplished nothing in life, I dropped out of college twice due to stress, have to resit my exams this year as I had a chest infection at exam time

    But I think lack of vitamins etc are whats affecting me, I started taking them every day for 2 weeks then perked up, then started going back to gym and perked up some more, then my sleeping pattern got better.

    Then I stopped taking the vitamins and my sleep pattern changed to 5am again after a few days and me sleeping 12 hours a day.

    Started taking vitamins again after 2 weeks of not and started perking up again.

    So its diet and stress related lol

    Its a reflex I think, though I am not entirely sure exactly. It came from a hypnosis book I read, and surprising works quite well.

    I just tried it. It seems like a good way to get a headache. I'm still wide awake as well!

    There is a hypnosis script that goes with it (sorry dont have it ), and like most hypnosis techniques you have to (a) want it and (b) have some faith it will work.
