    Decided to start this thread because I'm a bit of an insomniac. It would be good to find others in the same boat, because I do most of my thinking lying in bed at night and it could be good for others in the same situation =]

    The groups are great! This site has helped me no end. I'm hopefully going to "try" and sleep... If I don't reply. It worked!

    Don`t know what a proper nights sleep is like without medication.

    I have numerous sleep disorders bordering on sleepwalking. The worst is restless legs syndrome. Can`t sleep at night without tablets from the doc. Then falling asleep in the day at totally the wrong time. Can`t even be a passenger in a car without falling asleep. If I`m driving I feel ok cos I`ve got something to concentrate on. Yet if I try to read I feel sick. Doc says it all related.

    Only got diagnosed a few years ago after attending a sleep disorder clinic.

    I'm the same-take now for example!! I tried the exercise thing and it doesn't work!! As exercise gives you more energy, therefore making you less likely to sleep! I can't remember the last time I slept all night!!! I can get to sleep no prob, it's staying asleep that is my problem :( x

    I cant sleep until 3 am,if I'm lucky! I have a bath around 1 am ,get in bed,watch tv or read if I fancy and wait until I can't see any longer, nothing works for me. I could lie for 5 hours wide awake x

    One night recently I was wide awake about 3a.m., so I came down and made a pot of tea and then played a few games (on ChitChat) with Emmaline from Norfolk, Pommette from Alicante, and a couple of other members from Wales and the North East. Minimins will always sort you out! :)

    Not an insomniac, just a few time zones west :)

    Waiting for Keith Urban to take the stage, otherwise I'd probably be getting into jammies soon.
