10 days

My insomnia is back with a vengeance. It has been 10 days since I slept more than 4 hours in a night and most of those nights I haven't slept AT ALL.

I've tried (not all on the same night!):

No caffeine before 3pm.
No caffeine at all.
Not eating after 8pm.
Eating a small snack right before bed.
Turning off the TV/Computer at midnight.
Warm milk.
Working out (but not to close to bedtime).
Yoga right before bed.

NOTHING works! Please PLEASE someone come over and knock me out with a baseball bat tonight so at least I get a little rest.

Haven't tried that actually Comebacknikki...is it a tea or a pill of some sort?

Cheeky - I've heard it's the BEST stuff ever but unfortunately it requires a trip to the Dr and as we all know, Kai is TERRIFIED of doctors and never goes. :-(

Day 11 continues...

You can get it in tea form or in pill form. It's widely available - any health food store will have it. The last time I went through some major insomnia issues, another blogger recommended it to me and it was the only think that worked.

Here's some info
