because i don't know.

Sleeping meds work for about 3 or 4 days and then i need to increase the dose (i use the herbal kind, valerian and such) to make it work.

What do you suggest to make it a bit more comfortable to get down and out between 11.30 pm and 7 am?
Unauthorized Copying is not only forbidden, but will prey upon your conscience, spoil your sleep, destroy your complexion, and eventually will wind up turning you into the kind of person who drinks methylated spirits out of a bottle hidden in a brown paper bag, and who lives under bridges, burps noxiously, and prays day and night for release from the unsupportable burden their life has become. We thought you'd appreciate the warning.

get up earlier is one possibility

no naps

take cafiene out of your diet

do more physicall excersie/work a couple hours before bed




When I suffer from Insomnia, which is most nights, I just stay up. Tho sometimes I'll try meditation and/or a herbal tea. Some people claim that warm milk works for them...haven't tried it myself.
just give me a minute, i'm thinking...

i usually get up around 7.15 am, i don't nap during the day, and i stay away from coffee and cola as far as i can get...

and working out is a bit too noisy.
