Need help sleeping!!

So I literally haven’t ate or slept in 48 hours. The eating isn’t worrying me but I literally feel drained but I can not get to sleep! After everything that’s happened and me and my ex have 100% ended I just can’t get it out of my mind. Every time I think about him my heart literally sinks and I get panicky. I know it’ll be like this for a while and things will get better but can anyone recommend anything to help me start sleeping again? I don’t want to take any medication more natural remedies or anything off the internet? Please let me know if you have any helpful ideas!

Wish I could help, but i'm in the same boat. Tried almost everything you can buy but nothing has worked that well. I think its a case of time will heal. Its a vicious circle the less sleep you have the harder you try to sleep the next night and that never works. Relax as much as you can (its not easy i know) and try not to force sleep. Hope you find an answer. x

Morg, this isn't very romantic but the feelings you still have for your ex are a trick nature plays to bond people together for procreation and child rearing. That's all romantic love is. If the relationship ends we feel bad and sad for a time but the feeling soon attaches itself to someone new who you begin to feel is just as attractive, good fun to be with and as interesting as the previous one.

I did say it wasn't very romantic but it is the truth. And that's what will happen to you, you will meet someone new and you will feel for them everything you felt for the previous guy. That's life, things will turn out fine for you.

Thank you Jeff, it will get better but for now I just feel rubbish and just can’t seem to sleep! Which is then making me feel worse haha

Honestly the best thing to do is shut your mind off. Some people are able yo do that and some aren't . just try to forget about everything and sleep. Another option is to distract your way to sleep. Example would be watching a movie.... Other then that if it don't work out just take the medication

Thank you! I do like to fall asleep to the tv so I might try that tonight, it’ll take my mind off everything.
