    Yep! It takes me so long to get to sleep! If something wakes me in the middle of the night, I can’t fall back to sleep for 2-3 hours.

    Yes. Falling to sleep is horrible. I have to take meds.

    Especially if pain wakes me up. Then I have to take something for that and the restlessness then I’m up for hours.

    Falling asleep is extremely difficult: I use 1-2 breathing which can get results 75 percent of the time. Hot showers/hot bath , heating pad helps too

    I have issues with sleep deprivation that has been ongoing for about 25+ years. I usually fall asleep (get about 3-4 hrs) after being up for 2-3 nights. I've struggled with the ability to fall asleep, stay asleep & be able to go back to sleep if woken up. I've also struggled with night terrors too and have tried almost every sedative. I finally had to think outside the box and not focus so much on sleep (ex. trying to go to sleep) or lack of sleep. I decided to find ways that would relax my body enough (while awake) so that my body could still benefit (heeling) like it would from sleep.

    I’ve been taking 100 mg of Trazodone and sleeping like a baby. No morning hangover!

    Yes. I have trouble falling asleep due to mind racing and also due to pain. Most nights I take for pain and to help me fall asleep.

    Oh yes! Ever since I was a newborn! The only time I ever slept well was when I was exhausted as a teenager and now I stay up about 3 days with napping at night before I get close to a normal night of sleep.

    I do...started to take 3mg of Melatonin. Seems to help a bit.

    Sleep eludes me always- I try many tricks but it’s a challenge.

    My doctor put me on muscle relaxers to sleep. Works great and no more restless nights.

    All the time, I take meds to help me sleep but they still don't work

    No sleep here either. I’ve been struggling with it since, we’ll as long as I can remember really. Now, with so much pain and increased anxiety, I’m lucky to get more than 4 hours in a row… ever. It’s all so hard.

  • Danielleml

    Yeah I know what you mean I think I got about 3 hours last night. It's hard, have you tried anything to help you sleep?

  • sexkitten

    If you can get a medical marijuana card that helps with sleep it's really good
