    I can never sleep good and I was just curious if anyone has any tips, tricks, suggestions, or ideas about being able to sleep better?

    I have trouble falling asleep because my mind keeps going and going about random stuff.

    Once I do fall asleep all is good but if i get woken up its over. If i've been asleep for more than 2 hours i will be wide awake the moment my eyes open, brain going again thinking of random stuff.


    Anyone else have this type of problem? What do you do?

    sounds like you're under some stress. I have insomnia at times and I have yet to find anything that works except to turn on the TV and put something really boring on, or read something that is really boring.

    I have more trouble shutting off this computer, closing the lid, and shutting off the light...\

    But...1st question: How much coffee/caffeine do you drink?

    Concentrate on being in space. Flying through space. Occasionally you pass by a star at high speed, so all you see is a vague impression of a streak of light. Everything else is pitch black. Keep concentrating on that. Black out everything else. Next thing I know, it's morning.

    Failing that, a blow job seems to work.

    Usually i use the TV, i put on poker that i have recorded off espn. usually puts me asleep. I'm not too stressed out, i've been like this a long time. But when i am stressed i cant even sleep at all, i wont stay asleep.




    Very little. I usually have either a sobe energy (the weak one not the crack in a can sobe) or a vitamin water, the yellow energy one, first thing in the morning. Then no more caffine for the rest of the day.



    The BJ is a good way to wake me up, but not put me to sleep :lol:.

    I don't sleep for SHIT. If it isn't the Tinnitus keeping me awake, it's the pain that wakes me up.

    What works for me? Get so tired that I basically pass out.

    Sleep? What's that?

    I have anxiety and insomnia ... worrying about tomorrow's dinner keeps me up late.

    me too...on both counts. i just have to sit awake till i finally sleep.

    And if one of my injuries are acting up its even worse. I have percocet for the pain but that stuff makes me wired and full of energy. I know its not supposed to but when your always in pain the absence of pain gives you a short euphoria.

    I just took some ibuprophen....am awaiting heavy eyelids now :D
