tbh I don't do much activity as I don't like going outside but I use the wii alot ,

Last time I had a bout it lasted for a few weeks , it tends to go away by it's self but it is sooooo frustrating when it happens especially when my meds are sedative based and I take them when i supposed too .

I have loads to do Distraction wise which is why I don't understand the extreme boredom levels I am getting at the moment

I suffer with insomnia severely.  The main thing is, don't lay in bed if you can't sleep.  I usually wrote or doodle or watch cartoons or something funny.  Don't put a film on or play anything that requires too much concentration, ot can make your mind too lively and you need to relax.  Try and avoid caffiene after 4/5pm and lastly, although I know its not easy try not to worry about not sleeping it makes it a lot worse  :hug1:   :hug1: :hug1:

after my last bout of insominia  I got into a rountine of being in bed and asleep by nine pm  , changed my eating habits so I was not eating after 5pm   don't drink coffee or tea so no caffine , following all the advice the Pro's give out   ::)  and it was working infact my CC  even commented on how well I was looking lol .

my only big worry is about being transferred over from incap to ESA * shudders * as I know the ' medical ' is pathetic

been like this for two weeks now , did not sleep till about five this morning then i slept most of the day away  :hissy:    I really don't want to fall back into old routines

was talking to a mate and she reckons I could be trying too hard  ??????!?   and I need to slow down
