    any insomniac's out there

    well i keep getting different stats on to what percent of people have insomnia, but it's usually above 10(as high as 40%)

    as a person to have insomnia myself, i have tried most of the common methods(ie. eating 2 hours before sleeping, working out 5 hours before sleeping) and i found the most effective way is to read before trying to get to sleep

    hwoever
    a) even that usually dosn't work, as i feel amazingly tired but after 10 minutes of not falling asleep im' back to being wide awake again
    b) i just don't suddenly become tired, it happens overtiem from reading, and usually i find myself reading the same sentence over and over again
    usually i find myself reading the same sentence over and over again

    and it's really hardcore annoying, and i usually lose my page(again really annoying)

    so does anyone else here have insomnia, and what is the way that you find most effective for falling asleep?

    mine is something semi-illegal, and just from posting this im' sure the people mature enough to know what is, knows what it is

    I don't have Insomnia, but I find falling asleep very difficult. I go to bed, and lie awake for several hours, and then eventually drift off. So usually I only get about four/five hours sleep a night.
    So nowadays I just stay awake until the early hours of the morning, usually watching god damn boring television, until I fall asleep.

    Enoch was right.

    Makes me sound like a hypochrondriac..

    I think I used to have difficulty sleeping at summer times when I'd just totally reverse my sleeping pattern, getting it into normal was a kick up the ass but I think it's because I just stay awake longer than usual.

    Not being able to sleep isn't insomnia, you have to suffer from it for a looong time before it's classed as insomnia. Hell, it could even be your bed just being uncomfortable, flip the mattress.
    I love you, Adam.

    My Great Nan bought it for herself before she died..and it was made especially because she had a bad back, so I took it when we cleared her house.

    LOOKY HERE. Days used to be 30 hours long back when humans originated, obviously, we were meant to stay awake much longer, yeah, we got accustomed to it. But there's still a few people who just won't sleep.

    Now do you want a discussion going here or not? Because I've got alllll night.

    And I hate my bed, it's one of those hippo and bird things.
    In fact, I have two beds...
    I love you, Adam.

    well various sites say different

    Insomnia can be:

    Transient (short term) insomnia lasts from a single night to a few weeks.
    Intermittent (on and off) insomnia is short term, which happens from time to time.
    Chronic (on-going) insomnia occurs at least 3 nights a week over a month or more.
    Chronic insomnia is either primary or secondary:

    Primary insomnia is not related to any other health problem.

    Secondary insomnia can be caused by a medical condition (such as cancer, asthma, or arthritis), drugs, stress or a mental health problem (such as depression), or a poor sleep environment (such as too much light or noise, or a bed partner who snores).

    allthough my bed is very uncomfortable, i still can't sleep anywhere else....and i always sleep in because of it

    so you don't have to have sleeping problems for a long time before you are considered to have insomnia, it's just not as bad as someone who has it for a while(me, i haven't been able to sleep very well since fall)

    however i think my case is far worse than others....as i can never fall asleep, and there is says chornic's can't sleep 3/4 times per week
