I cannot sleep!

Postby sunshine81 » Tue Feb 15, 2005 8:05 pm

I'm desperate! I need your help, family EC!!

I'm working all day from 7am till 5pm. I have to go up between 5 and 6am every morning. I'm always late! I never wake up in time. Then i'm always in a hurry. I have my day working in front of the computer like 9 to 10 hours a day. And i am sooo tired! The problem is although i am sooo tired i simply cannot sleep. Already at 8 every evening i am soo tired that i feel like going to bed. But i can't. First of all my rommates are not the most quiet persons and secondly i have to work so much for my thesis. But when i go to bed then (usually latest at 10pm) i cannot fall asleep!! I am sooo tired but cannot sleep! I go to bed and just have a restless tossing and turning - but i cannot fall asleep. It's i think always around midnite or even later when i finally close my eyes for sleeping - but then it's already five and i have to go up already!! So i never get more than five hours sleep a nite!! I can feel it's gettin' me down-and-out!! I'm so tired during the day that i'm cold all the time and can't concentrate on my work - what i do have to do,tho!!! :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

I don't know what to do!! I feel i'm getting weaker and weaker every single day!! What can i do??? Please somebody give me an advice!! :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

I read you problem it is not difficult for me, I can solve your proble very easily.

I am also work daily 12 hours from 8:00am to 8:00pm and i wake up 7:00am and sleep 12:30pm without reast.

First of all you do some practice, when you will ready for sleep, you image you are free from life, you dont take any tention in your mined. (any type of tention like job, salary, people, lover, parent, or bosses) just you are ready for sleep.

And secondly you will take a table of vitamine it is also improve your tiredness.

I hope you well get better when you try this one.

And please reply me what is the result of my advice.

Hi,
I have read your message and got to know about your problem.
You usually sleep at around 10:00pm and wake up at 4:30am or 5am
That means you take around 6 hours sleep daily
Sleeping 6 hours without any disturbance is not bad for your health but if you get 6 hours sleep with disturbance, this is not good for your health.
If you feel that you don’t have sleeping problem then you might be thinking a lot about your life activities or priorities, which is not giving relax to you.
There are number of reasons behind your problem
This might be your first or new or good job and you don’t want to loose this by your sleeplessness
You might have many plans to do and couldn’t make even one, and struggling a lot to have it done.
In my opinion you think too much about things (whatever in your mind), that’s why you don’t get sleep well.
You should be calm and cool, make some priorities in your life.
Try to manage your time and do some physical exercises, physical tiredness will give your body relax and you will get sleep soon.
I think you should go for physical exercises instead of getting medicines for sleep.
Once you addicted with the medicines you will be depending on it for rest of your life, trust me!
Cheer Up!

Thanks
MM

Maybe the problem is that you spend so many hours in front of the computer. I know it might sound strange but I heard that spending so much time before the screen can be the cause of insomnia.

I agree with Dixie. Screen makes eyes tired (and not only eyes). But at the end of "looking-at-screen", eyes continue to act (they don't stop their activity at once).

You should make one break every hour at work. (or choose a job without too much screen).

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.

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.

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).

Dear sunshine,you should follow those steps:
1-Relax

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 :?:
