    Oh bless u, sounds like your having a right ol time of it, maybe get yourself to the docs Hun as to much stress is very bad for health and with not sleeping and u being a single mum u need as much rest as possible. I hope u have luck with your eldest girl with all the meetings etc, maybe pop to the chemist and try something like kalms or St. John's wort to ease the stress u r under. I wish u well and if u ever need a chat then just message me and remember things can only get better and always think positive Hun x

    Hello Amy, You do seem like you have a lot going on in your life and this can affect your sleep. Have you tried Nytol or something similar from chemists or Holland and Barrett. You could speak to the pharmacist who could give you advice. I would stay clear of sleeping pills as they can be addictive and are only prescribed short term. 

    Best wishes.
