I find with me I will be able to fall a sleep after laying down for a few hours but can't stay asleep. I will wake up at 1am, 2am, 3am and sometimes stay awake for the rest of the night, and sometimes fall a sleep after a few hours to have to get up for work in a hour or two. I've been so tired lately, but I just can't seem to make my body stay asleep. I always had this problem when I was a kid too. I would go to sleep around 10pm, wake up at 1am or 2am and be up until about 5 or 6am to fall back asleep and get up for school at 7am. And in the last little bit I've fallen back into the same pattern. Sleep for a couple of hours, up for a few hours, sleep for one or two hours and then up for work.

I didn't know what it was like to fall asleep on my own - hadn't slept normally since I was a little kid, and even then it was touch and go. I was on sleep meds that would tranquilize a horse. I never touched caffeine, slept with a mask and ear plugs.

Oddly enough when I started meds for my temporal lobe stuff I now fall asleep. I even fall asleep watching tv sometimes. I fall asleep...drum roll...relaxed. Weirdest thing ever. The meds I take aren't sleep related at all, just I guess getting my brain back on track I now can sleep (most of the time - not when I get too keyed up...).

Don't oversleep!

Hitting the snooze button each day and sleeping in on the weekends can actually make you MORE tired. Aim for a healthy 7-8 hours each night.

Turn down the lights! Itís more difficult to fall and stay asleep in a room that is too bright. Wear a sleeping mask and close the blinds and curtains to diminish light and set the mood for sleep.

Let it out. Try to decrease your brain activity before bed by writing down your thoughts in a journal. It will help clear your mind so you can close the book on today and move forward!

Turn your back on the clock. Studies show that watching the clock into the morning hours makes you more anxious and less able to fall asleep. Move the clock so that you can't see it from bed.
