If you look at the top of the screen, there is a button marked profile. if you click on that there is a section called 'signature' where you can put little words of encouragement or wisdon and also post the bcc code for your ticker graph. Once you do that, your ticker and anything else in that section will come up on each post you make!
Sounds like you have been conditioned into associating reading with food. And if I read you right, you MAY also have been conditioned into associating bed with reading (and hence food). One of the first things they get insomniacs to do is to not do anything in bed except for sleep and the horizontal rhumba. If you go to bed and are not tired, don't read, don't toss and turn, get up and do something (not eat) until you feel tired. That way you train yourself to associate 'bed' with 'sleep'.
Something that may help you sleep better - I know the pain is a factor in keeping you awake, but this may kick-start the sleep initiation. Before we fall asleep there is a marked drop in body temperature, which is your body saying 'hey, I'm switching off for a while now'. Many poeple find that if they induce a large temperature dop, this can trigger sleep.
'But how do I do that?' I hear you ask. Well, running a hot bath just before bed will do the trick - your body heats up, then after you get out, it cools down quickly and hey presto you have a temperature drop. It is also very relaxing and can act as a ritual signal that it's now time for bed
Also, try to make sure your bed is well made each night. Clean, crease free sheets increase comfort.
See now, I knew there was a reason I did that course on States of Consciousness!
