no...not the Faithless track sadly.

Mine is back and is biting me on the ass right now.



sleeping pills/sedatives are not an option for me as they scare me, plus even meds with a mild sedative effect (eg, zirtec) knock me out cold - but only during the day, even when taken at night.



However, I am not sleeping. - at night that is. I am exhausted during the day due to lack of sleep but I can't even doze off in the evening.



I have tried cutting out alcohol and caffeine, eating a light dinner, trying relaxing activities before bed etc and I'm still as wired as if I had a tazer up my ass.







I really need to combat this because I have a part-time job and I am at uni full time.







I am really lost for ideas.

bigstuff eh? hehe



For me the problem seems to be stress related so my sleeping problems fluctuate a lot depending on my stress levels. So for me it has helped to locate and elimate whatever is cause stress.



For me it is mostly school work. I found that when I stopped procrastinating and I accomplished stuff it made me feel better and less stressed out. If you have any chance of fixing stress this could help you too.

You could also try regular excercise. As well as making you more tired it helps with stress levels and makes you more relaxed.



Decant quantities of calcium, magnesium, vit b6 and zinc can also help with insomnia, check to make sure these are in your diet.



It may sound dumb and childish but counting sheep can work (but not always). It's a kind of like a simple form of meditation that helps you clear the mind and relieve stress.
