hi rosehip, i do understand how you feel! Iget very little sleep unless i use a mix of meds. it does sound as if you are 'presurising' yourself to sleep. In your subconciousness you don't realise how much this influences your ability to sleep.

I still have many nights of sleeplessness, but i use a few tricks to enure that even though i may not be sleeping my mind and body are at least resting as much as they'reable lol!

I use Rosemary or sage essential oil burner, some gentle music that i enjoy or even listen to the radio ( the chanel that has plays on) and last but not least, i play my day back in my mind until i get back to the moment i woke/got up from bed if i gedt that far!i also like to make sure i'm in a comftorble position and sometimes lieing down just isn't always the best for being comfy.

i hope you do finely get some sleep but at least if you dont sleep continuing to rest is the best because your body is benefiting.
