Ho... Dear Mali, you must misunderstand me, my friend.

As I have suggested that Sleeping pill is not advisable unless it is highly necessary or under doctor's instruction. Your worry is truly understandable; however, it is unlikely that it will happen as you think. Because, sleeping pill is restricted medicine. Generally, no one can buy it without medical certificate.It is apparently a joke trying to relax our poor Sunshine81 from stress. By the way, i admire your suggestion. She will definitely take yours.

Dear Br. Chet.

Once again thanks for your good comments. Actually in our country, (Pakistan) if you have the source or PR you will get the medicine without doctors prescription. I dont know what is the system in your country.

But know I understand your reply.

Chet Baker wrote:sunshine81, apparently, you have suffered so much pressure from work. here are my little advices, I hope that you may find it useful. First of all, you need to prepare 2 following items.

1. Sleeping pill; and
2. baby oil.

I don’t suggest people to take any sleeping pill unless it is highly necessary or under doctor’s instruction. In your case, this sleeping pill is only for YOUR ROOMMATE. As he/she is not a quiet person and you find that you can’t fall to sleep due to his noise, you can ask him to take a sleeping pill in order to let him sleep earlier than you. As a result, you will have sufficient and high quality sleeping time.

If a quite environment is not enough for you to fall asleep, I will suggest you to take a hot bath. After taking a hot bath, apply baby oil to your whole body before dry. It will release you from pressure.

If you find the the above suggestions are not of satisfactory, I think you better take a long vacation.


I like your suggestion with the baby oil! That sounds good, really. I will try that tomorrow evening when my rommates left for the weekend. :P
A long vacation would be the best i could ever get! I haven't had vacation for 9 month now :? :?

Thanks everybody for your sweet suggestions! :P I'll try everyone! :P

your problem happens to many people. here are some advices.

First of all, just relax as possible! before going to bed, you'd better read a dull novel on bed. NEVER think to yourself:"I must fall into sleep right now! otherwise I will feel very tired tomorrow! come on! sleep!" that will make you stay up.

Secondly, before going to bed, you'd better eat some food, not too much. for example, a piece of bread, a cup of milk. that will be helpful for sleeping deeply. Guess what? when you sleep with an empty stomache, your sympathetic nerve will get very excited, and that will affect the quality of your sleeping.

Thirdly, before sleeping, just think to yourself: "I wouldn't give a damn whether I can fall into sleep or not! whatever, I have my dull novel with me! " ... Be creative ;)

Good luck

I am really sleepy right now.

I couldn't sleep on Thursday night (I hate when my roomates go out on Thursdays), Friday was really terrible, and today (Sat) I had to get up early when what I actually wanted to do was to sleep all day long. I am so tired and sleepy now that I don't know how to tell my bf that I wanna go to bed :? (to sleep).

Red Rose You're so naughty , dear, hahahahah

Dear sunshine,you should follow those steps:
1-Relax
2-Listen to some classic music for even 10minutes and you can dance if you love to.
3-have a shower and as our friend said applly body oil
4-don't ever think that time is running and you are not going to finish your work , you thesis ,your sleep.
5- Convence yourself that the whole working day was perfect and you've done alot and you are going to start a nice wonderfull day tomorrow with great effort.
6- have a cup of milk and DREAM ABOUT YOUR BLUE EYES GUY ;)

BY THE WAY , WHY DON'T YOU GIVE HIM A CALL BEFORE YOU GO TO BED :?:

DO YOU THINK THAT HE'S THE REASON? ;)

I think insomnia is some kinds of illness.And if it lasted for several days or more ,it was very bad for your health.

I ever tried sleeping pill many many years ago,i had forgottern the reason why I couldn't sleep.Maybe the burden produced by the job.And I was too young to deal with the job life since at that time I just graduated from university.

BUt I think my roommate was not very bad at that time.SO I overcome it at last.really not easy,I mean I had drunk too much and my liver was hurt at that time. :mrgreen:

if possible,you should consider to change your dwelling place.

as like many friends here adviced,sleeping pill was not very good and sometimes could made you feel more sensitive for the unsleepness.And it effected you in the contrary at last.

I remembered once I took two pills ,and made me keep awake till almost the next morning. :mrgreen: :lol:

Well,my body was tortured so much anyway. :mrgreen: Always.

in nowadays,sometimes I could not sleep well in the case I felt unhappy ,on job,or something others.But try a cup of milk is good .

you should take a nap if you cherish yourself. in the day time.or
After lunch ,if permitted,just count the number without voice,"one goat,two goats,three goats,four,five....."till enter another world----sleeping.

--------At last,have enough sleeping time is the best method to make one look beautiful. :R:
