Anyone with TBI find it difficult to regulate their sleep schedule?

      So I was on all kinds of meds for like 3 months after my injury, but since i weened off the meds, I haven't been able to sleep without melatonin even a single time

      I take melatonin and mirtazapine and they don't help me much. Didn't even know I had a YBI until last week and I've had it for a while. Hopefully treatment will help and if it does I'll post about it!

      Absolutely. I found my natural rhythm is about 17 hrs on and 7-8 hrs off. It doesn’t make for good routines

        @OuchiePrincess How did you find your natural rhythm?

          @Overcomer i started documenting how long I would sleep for. And how long I could comfortably stay awake. And kept recording that for a few months

      Always. Had to quit my job at the end of 2021 and got on a good sleep schedule for a week and since then it has been so inconsistent.

        @Y0g1 I quit my job too. I have been trying to regulate my sleeping habits but I can’t seem to get consistent. I’m always tired and don’t wake up feeling rested. No mater how much I sleep.

          @LindsayLee my psychiatrist just put me on a schedule because he thinks it will help. I have my phone wind down around 9- after 9:30 no screens at all- I put on music and a timer to turn the music off (it helps me fall asleep). Around 9:00-9:30 I start reading whichever book I’m reading at the moment and then turn the lights off right about 10. If you have an iPhone make a daily schedule for it to turn to sleep mode at a certain time every night- takes a lot of self control but you can do it!!

      None so far. But I receive a heavy blanket for Christmas and some how it has helped but when I lay down

      • LindsayLee

        @Overcomer I want one. I know it will help me. I’m glad you’re seeing a positive response with it.

          @LindsayLee Thanks. It helps me a lot

    • Overcomer

      731d
