    Default How do you forget about everything and sleep??

    I completely have trouble turning my brain off..

    How do you forget about everything and sleep? It seems to be worse when I'm worried about something and can do nothing about it.. Then it tangents into anger, being upset ect ect.. Talking to dp doesn't help either!!

    Massive pg belly is a pain in the bottom too coz I can't get comfortable;-(

    Sorry I have no helpful suggestions, but I can sympathise because I'm the same sometimes! I just rely on the fact that EVENTUALLY I will get tired and fall asleep.

    I use guided meditation. Sometimes it's the only way for me to get some sleep.

    If you google it you'll find some good ones

    It can take some practise but it's so worth it!

    I know how frustrating it is.

    I write my worry down to deal with tomorrow. Then read or do some relaxation.

    Breathing exercises usually help me, try to focus on just breathing in, hold & out. Also think about each part of your body & relax each as you do.
    It isn't fun when you can't get something out of your head & sleep...

    I'm on medication to help me sleep after my break down, unfortunately though despite it making me sleep my brain is still racing a hundred miles an hour and I wake up drenched in sweat and have lashed out at poor DP a few times in my sleep, including head butting, biting and sleep talking.

    Before this I was using over the counter sleeping tablets to sleep after my relationship break up as I was so used to having someone next to me.

    I count, or seriously count sheep! Its the only way I can distract my brain - thinking about something else than I eventually drift off.

    ORR rather than thinking about something thats worrying me (mroe often than not its money & work!) I think about something exciting - bubble thats coming, what they will look like etc. That normally settles me down a bit.
