    What do you do when

    you cannot sleep?

    I am usually on here or another board I am on. Sometimes I read or
    take a hot bath.

    So what do you do when you cannot sleep?

    I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple, pray in your church.

    A warm bath and a nonsense book (something light, funny, romantic) or a magazine, or somethimes even a cookbook.

    When Dh was away, I would throw the blanket from the bed and my jammies in the dryer while I took a bath, then out of the bath into the warm jammies and blanket and sleep.

    Fixing a cup of tea and reading usually does the trick.

    I usually lay in bed and TRY to sleep. If it really doesn't work, I'll usually get online or read a book or watch TV. Sometimes I'll have a snack since food helps me sleep.

    Take a hot bath and read a book, watch a movie, hang out on here.

    Unfortunately, there seems to be not enough of the whole sleeping thing going on lately!

    I take ambien. It's not ideal but it's the only way I can sleep.

    oh I never have that problem anymore!

    I'd just stay up on the computer/tv or I'd read or I'd play sudoku.
