I have a natural remedy for insomnia which may or may not work for you. When you are lying in bed, relax your body, then hold your breath and count to 30 . If its difficult you can count to 20. Then breath in gently. Count silently in your mind. It interrupts thoughts that may be troubling you. Breath normally after that for a while, then do it again. You can repeat this indefinitely till you fall asleep. This technique also lowers blood pressure. When holding your breath, do not strain yourself but do it for a comfortable time. Good luck!
Thank you. I will try that out.

That's me pretty much every night. Some nights it's better than others, but the majority of the time I can't fall asleep in a reasonable amount of time.

It's kind of paradoxical for lack of a better term, because I can't fall asleep very easily if there is light/noise - the more the worse - but at the same time, sometimes when it's completely dark and silent, I can't just lay there and fall asleep without my mind wandering off into who knows where.and not being able to stop my thoughts.

I could be dog tired too the whole day, yawning every 60 seconds, the whole time feeling like I could lay down and sleep for 10 hours, but then when I do lay down it takes a while before I finally fall asleep.

Even when I was in the hospital this last time, they would give me melatonin and trazodone, the melatonin would definitely make me drowsy, but even with them both helping I would still have trouble falling asleep sometimes.

I think personally for me maybe it's just a matter of not being able to sleep if I'm just not 'ready' to, and being tired doesn't necessarily always mean I'm ready.
