Sleep issues are so frustrating. I don't take any pills or supplements.

I don't know why but I find that sound is very relaxing and helps tremendously.

There are a lot of black screen sleep videos on YouTube.
I also run a fan most nights to help sleep.

I've had sleeping problems for literally years now and it's worsened over the past year. I either can't fall asleep so get up and go back at about 3am or later, or fall asleep then wake about 2 and can't get back to sleep so get up and go back an hour or so later. I usually fall asleep about 4am then wake around 6..
It doesn't affect me adversely, sometimes i nod off for 20 minutes in the day, but otherwise feel fine. I just find it so frustrating lying in the darkness unable to sleep.
In desperation consulted my clinic doctor who has prescribed Zopiclone but they are still sitting in the cupboard unopened. I can't bring myself to take a 'sleeping tablet' though am on a myriad of different medications. I doubt Valerian would be suitable for me,, or any other herbal remedy.

I go to bed, read for a short time, then fall asleep. I wake an hour later and then lie awake for up to two hours . That sets off a cycle of sleeping and waking, a bit like napping. It’s so frustrating lying there in the dark, tossing and turning. I finally fall asleep at around 5.30 - 6.00 and wake at 8.00 a.m. Hubby is used to it. We have separate bedrooms because he has sleep problems too which he puts down to heart medication. Our sleep patterns are not compatible.

That’s exactly how my nightly “sleep” is - a series of naps instead of one long period of uninterrupted sleep.

For millions of years the only distraction humans had at night was the threat of being eaten. Now…

If you sleep badly and feel tired the following day,
please dont drive..
my dad fell asleep at the wheel - had a head-on crash, - my mum was in
hospital for four months, and never walked properly again...

Oh my QM …so sorry to hear that … and very good advice !

Whatever driving I do, are very short distances, I manage those just fine.. …I have found on any long car drives we’ve tried in the past, it’s too difficult (and unwise) for me to share the driving…as much as I love driving, I let the person that’s had the better sleep do all the driving!

I love my intermittent nightly sleep pattern, I get so much done in the quiet of the night...all my planning, shopping lists, reading and correspondence....leaves the daytime for outdoor activities, the perfect balance I find. So no complaints about not sleeping from me , I consider it a bonus
