    Have you tried a cup of hot milk with honey? I had a period where I couldn't sleep well and that kind of solved the problem for me

    I'm an insomniac.
    I can't sleep properly the least.
    Last time I slept good was 8 years ago orso...

    Lately it is declining again, lesser sleep, more hysteria..

    my dad works for nintendo.
    yeah, i don't know why sony didn't implement a sleep option on ps3, sometimes i wanted to suspend a game and play later withoout going the process of find a save point if the game doesn't support quick save, turn off the console, turn on, cross media bar menu, launch game, go through the logos, and menus..
    i don't feel confortable to leave the console ON for several hours, it also makes some noise while it's on, which is a bummer..

    on a more serious note, i have a sleeping problem. my mother says "you use electronics at night so your brain thinks of the light as daylight". it's not even true. the days when i haven't even looked at a screen, i still can't sleep. nothing works

    While it's true that watching at a blue light screen makes your brain produce certain chemicals that keep you awake

    I have troubles to fall asleep for many years now. I don't know if it comes from depressions or a tumor on the pituitary gland :/
    the only thing that helped me was hanging around with a friend or more, but they all lose interest in me so i'm alone again >.>

    I always wake up at the exact same time in the day, and I hate it.. And whenever there's something exciting I can hardly sleep.

    Use Nightshift if you're on IOS or twilight if you're on andriod. They both reduce blue light so you can get a good night sleep

    one time a doctor told me to don't use eletronics at night and go read book or stuff, draw something etc but the max I can do is make me turn the pc when everything is boring and read a book or a manga ...

    But these times I'm feeling very tired... I strated working half period at morning from 8:30 to 13:30, (I wake at 7 ) some time ago I had a rest ad afternoon and then went to study, back at 23 and used the PC to about 1:30~2:00

    Now thes eclass finished, I still rest afternoon but if I do nothing , i will take a lot of naps xp (2~5 ...) and still go sleep around 1:30~2:30, and wake at 7:00

    I even fell bad for this for not seeing much productivity from my side... I have a lot that I wnat to do but I do nothing or just a few ..

    Well, about the sleep, I think the idea is try to keep busy (work, hobbie, fun is important XD) and well, don' me still, burn some energy , when you get tired at nigth don't force to be awake, just go bed XD

    Around 4-5 hours of sleep a day. Better than nothing.
    I also wake up multiple times at night.
