Please, share all of your tips and tricks. It’s gotten really bad. I can manage to sleep about two nights a week. Just enough to keep me out of the hospital, but not enough to feel functional. I gave up coffee, I gave up napping during the day, I exercise, I eat healthy. I don’t know what my problem is.
Well, technically, I know what my problem is. I had a brain tumor right in the sleep center of my brain as a child, and so my brain never learned how to sleep properly. No drugs have ever helped. Occasionally, melatonin will work, but it happens so infrequently, I can’t help but wonder if it’s just a coincidence.
Should I just abandon the idea of a normal sleep/wake cycle, and just sleep whenever I’m tired? Should I be diligent about not mixing up my days and nights? I just don’t know!
