Until you no longer: have a sleep deficit, if that's the problem. Most of us need 7-8 hrs of sleep/night. If ur overscheduled & feeling unrested when u awaken, ur not getting enough. Always a good idea to also check w/ ur provider to make sure u don't have any vitamin/mineral deficiencies ur not aware of. Search "sleep hygiene" on the internet for good sleep habits. Sweet dreams!

Rumination is a real: problem. We worry we didn't do all we should have, as well as what we need to do tomorrow. We fret over things said & unsaid. It's as though we think we'll forget so our brain becomes like a hamster wheel, spinning, spinning. Try keeping a note pad next to ur bed & start writing ur worries there. They'll be there when u awaken from a good sleep, ready to tackle those problems. Sweet dreams!

When people say they: can't sleep, they usu mean they can't sleep at night or they're not sleeping as much as they like or think they should. My guess is u do sleep at some time during a 24-hour cycle. If not, ur writing well for someone so sleep-deprived. Ur on a lot of sedative meds-this can have a boomerang effect-you fall asleep for 1,5-3 hrs then ur brain wakes up. C ur doc about reducing the # of meds ur on.
