    try herbal teas , they usually do the trick for me , Chamomile is very effective , but you have to experiment to see which one is the best for you.

    Hi,

    Occupy your brain before bedtime, watch a documentary, read a light hearted book. For me the only thing that works is playing on a ps3 or ps4. It tires my brain and I go to sleep within 5 minutes of my head hitting the pillow.

    Different things work for different brains.

    Are you on medications for depression? Some can help with sleep. The other way is medicine for sleep. If you can get sleep with the other suggestions, thats best. I never was able to get sleep either. For many years I have had trouble sleeping. Not being able to sleep is rough. I hope you get some sleep whatever method you use.

    Hi Syena - sorry to read of your dilemma. I guess the fundamental question is why are you so sad? What is the trigger for it? Is it a daily, weekly, monthly or seasonal affliction? How long have you suffered these spells? Whatever the answers the situation requires affirmative action, and the best place to start is your doctor. Discuss it with him/her and suggest perhaps therapy might help solve the problem. Therapy is not a crime - in fact it takes a strong person to allow themselves the space to be vulnerable and open up. It's important that you are comfortable with the therapist/counsellor/psychologist, which will take time so don't expect miracles the first time. Once you dig beneath the layers of conciousness you will learn more about yourself and be able to confront the issue, recognise it, and learn coping mechanisms to tackle any future issues. Sleep is very important for the regenerative qualities required by mind and body. To be deprived of sleep can exacerbate problems and they can swing out of control. Don't worry - there is help out there, you just have to go and get it.
