What can cause insomnia?

I can only sleep like 2 hours a night now, never used to be like that. I go to bed at 1 am and am awake for 2-3 hours before I finally fall asleep then am up at 6 am to watch the kids. But even if i didnt set my alarm for 6 I wake up at 430-5 wide awake.

I am going through alot of crap right now and am majorly depressed so I am wondering if depression and stress etc. can cause it? if anyone has it pm me or just reply in the thread if you have any insight to assist me. Thanks, Aric

Yes, stress.

Go ask your pharmacist about melatonin, and lay off the caffeine and booze in the evenings.

DON'T take sleeping pills.

Re: What can cause insomnia?

You've got a lot going on right now, Stegen. I'm sure your mind is restless.

Is a paradigm worth 20 cents?

ABSOLUTELY!!!

Further to what LTL said...Exercise every day (cardio, preferably), which will cause physical exhaustion, enabling sleep to come more easily.

That's what I was going to suggest. Take up running, and check out St. John's Wort.

I am up to 3 times a day. I am so lonely. anyway. I am worried about taking anything that will put me to sleep medicaly because I am scared that i will take it at the wrong time and sleep while the kids are awake.

Thanks Guys

I am starting a new diet today, mainly just trying to eat healthier. I suppose I could put exercise in that equation somewhere.

Now, where is the double stroller!

I sometimes have trouble sleeping, but I usually lift weights in the evening, come home and suck back a protein shake and I'm out like a light.
