My darling blogger friends,

This post is a request for your help – so any ideas at all that you have, please please comment.


I struggle with insomnia that lasts months.

There are 3 types of insomnia really:
– struggling to fall asleep
– waking up during your sleep
– not having a restful sleep.

I have the last 2. Most people do wake up a few times during the night as part of their normal sleeping pattern. I however, sleep straight through the night, and when I wake up constantly, it means that I basically have my sleeping hours from the first time I fall asleep to the first time I wake up – which can be anywhere from 2 – 5 hours – not enough!

This subsequently means that  I am not having a restful sleep. I struggle to study at varsity and do work when I get home. I come home exhausted to my core, and fall asleep (I never sleep during the day unless I am sick, that’s why I see how much this is impacting me this time), which I know is a terrible idea, as I wake up all the more tired, struggle few some more hours, and back to sleep at around 10 or 11, and up at 2 in the morning, when I get up every day at around 5:30. It sucks!

Oh gosh, just read that insomnia and a restless sleep means that high blood pressure is on the way!


So, my question to you is:

“What are your methods of dealing with insomnia/having a restful sleep”

I would be ever so grateful to get your opinions.

  1. I feel the same. I think its a build up of stress etc. as well.

    Lately Ive been taking vitamins to try give me that added oomph for varsity. It helps.

    I also try reading before i go to bed to calm my mind down. I really think the of insomnia is an overactive mind, so do whatever you can to relax before you go to bed.

    Hope it helps!
