Currently at work but thought I would post this now as I am extremely tired.
Some people may have seen my previous post that I had a TBI back in 2013
I am having real problems with my sleep, I live off 6 hours a night and those 6 hours are very broken sleep which could be down to my bad lower back (EDIT - Been struggling to sleep for a long time before back problems) While I am at work I am just incredibly tired, but when I get home I almost feel fine maybe because I am moving around.
I don't get to sleep until very late normally purely because I get up to my room and my mind is just racing still, I try to relax and just switch off but I just mentally can't.
Even when I try to meditate before I sleep thoughts race back into my head telling me this isn't working.
I have normally been taking strong co-codamol + paracetamol before I sleep which tends to just send me off but it pains my stomach and I look and feel very very tired the next day.
Last night they wore off at 3am and again I was wide awake, I then took the last sleeping tablet I had which I can't remember the name and I am sure I was still awake but sleeping at the same time.
So confusing, just can't carry on like this I will probably self destruct. I almost need like a really good wind down ritual so I can sleep at like 10 pm would be so nice instead of like 12 at night.
Does anyone have tips on sleep????? Any help would be amazing.
