Hi everyone, I know that this wont be for everyone but I find it very good to help me sleep.
I have ME/CFS dx 7 years ago and fibro for a year. I never slept for the first 2 years of having ME I tried everything but just ended up tossing and turning or getting up at 4am etc.
I had always enjoyed listening to radio 4 and thought I would try listening to audio books. It has been a life saver to me. I listen in bed until I feel I will nod off and switch it off, or if I've fallen asleep and then wake up, I just listen again. It stops me worrying about not sleeping, and helps with not thinking about the pain. Audio books are available from your local library, or you can download from the internet.
I know its not everyones cup of tea, but I just cant be without my ipod now.
I hope this might be on interest to someone
