insomnia cures
      #2680 - 04/05/00 11:22 AM

Am still suffering from anxiety, even though it is getting better, but this insomnia is hell.
Have tried herbal valerium, herbal teas and meditation and am giving up. Sleeping tablets
are the only cure. Any suggestions before I get addicted to them?

Gus, this worked for me. I started a light exercise program. Mostly walking but a few
push-ups and sit-ups. I also went to bed and got up at the same time everyday. When I
couldn't sleep I got out of bed and jumped on the computer, watched tv, or read a book.
Don't stay in bed when you cannot sleep. It took a little while to work but now I am off
the sleeping pills. Good luck with whatever you try.

One thing you might want to try is journal writing. Even though your symptoms are
probably drug related if you are on drugs, easing the mind sometimes can help. Especially
if you are freaking out and meditation is not an option. I also sometimes found a late night
gym somewhere and worked out. Beats throwing things around the house. Good Luck!
