I have that problem.. I work late every night at work & the nights I dont work I still cant get to sleep until 2-3 in the morning every day I tried sleeping tablets but only use them when i was still awake at 4 in the morning until I bought one of them hypnotheropy cd's off ebay for 99 cants every time I cant sleep i get out the portabe cd player & listen to it. It really does work 9 out of 10 times for me.

Hi Tom
I recommend you go to the chemist and get some valerian. :idea: Its a natural product (not addictive) that relaxes you so you have a better chance of going to sleep. They are completely safe. They're not going to knock you out instantly but they definitely helped me.
Good luck, sweet dreams

Hi Chelle, what's the name of the hynotherapy cd? I was actually considering going to see one, but if a cd works it would be a lot cheaper!

I find knocking myself out with a hammer does the trick, and it's not addictive.

No...not really.

I hope your sleeping better now, did you see a doctor? I know exactly how you feel, i was up for 36 hours straight one time and was ready to kill myself to be quite honest :x

36hrs is a long time with no sleep. Don't forget sleep deprivation is not only unpleasant, it is deadly if it goes on for long enough.

Firstly there's all the dangerous errors you can make with driving, taking medications etc due to a lack of concentration. Secondly, sleep deprivation will kill you in and of it's own right.

That's right, if you stay awake long enough, you will die. The good news is the body won't usually let it get that far without something forcing it to (like someone poking you with a stick), but ongoing sleep deprivation does have really bad health consequences. That's why it's a good idea to see your GP
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
