For the past couple of weeks I haven't been sleeping properly. I stay up all night until almost 8 or 9 in the morning. Then I fall asleep and sleep in until 5 or 6 in the afternoon. I've tried staying up until the next night to try and fix it, but it didn't work. I even tried taking sleeping pills, and that didn't work either. *sigh* Any ideas on how to fix it would be appreciated. 😊

I haven't been able to sleep properly for a month now. Yay me for spending my vacation sleep deprived I guess..

I can’t sleep and I don’t know why. My parents think I should stick it out until the end of the school year or they say I get more sleep than I think. I’ve hinted that I need help. They seem to drag their feet like they don’t want me to get better.

I’ve quit drinking caffeine after noon, I’ve started turning off all my devices and TV earlier, I’ve tried reading and showering and exercising and journaling before bed. I have a sleep noise and meditation app. I have a warm cat and a cool bed with lots of comfy pillows. I can’t sleep. Even keeping my eyes shut is hard. The little sleep I have gotten in the past few weeks have just been weird nightmare fuel. What now?

i wake up randomly in the middle of the night no matter when i fall asleep. it’s always between 2 and 3 if i fall asleep before those times. otherwise it’s between 6 and 8. i can’t get a full night’s rest anymore. i don’t know if that was normal or because of the extra stress on my shoulders. but the lack of sleep, or at least the feeling of not getting enough sleep, is affecting me profoundly. melatonin doesn’t help. and idk why else to try.

I used to sleepy with my puppy, and he would lay against my back. These last three days after his passing, I haven’t been able to get any sleep without that comforting pressure on my back. I’m exhausted.

I just don’t understand myself. I don’t get tired until 4am. I can lay in bed for hours but it won’t make a difference. It sucks when I have to wake up at 6 every other day for college.

I have some serious insomnia and my mom doesn’t even believe that i have it. I take a lot of time falling asleep and sometimes when i actually fall asleep, i get a nightmare that wakes me which would make me stay up for hours until i finally sleep again. Sometimes i get 2-4 hours of sleep. Ive tried meditating, listening to slow, calm music, counting sheep...almost anything that could help me fall asleep in a few minutes. Any tips that anyone can suggest?
