Oh, and a nice "tube pillow" that they sometimes sell with the travel pillows. That helps a great deal. I hug mine like a teddy bear, with my arms crossed. It seems to open up my chest and I don't have any breathing issues

One of the things that help me sleep is foam ear plugs. Takes a bit to get used to sleeping with them in your ears but random noises no longer wake me up. I can still hear the loud noises so I wont sleep through my smoke detector going off but the ratty exhaust car passing by at night doesn't wake me up anymore.

FYI, if you try this you don't have to use new plugs every night but do have to change them regularly. The foam breaks down from use and allows more noise to get through. One more thing, if you try this the plugs have to be properly inserted or they don't work. That means read the instructions and use them properly. To many people just kinda put them in their ear which wont help you sleep or protect your ears in a noisy environment like they are designed to do.

Having spent lot of time in heavy machinery workshops, as well as on shooting ranges, I know exactly what you mean by having to use them properly - makes a massive difference in the amount of sound they cut out!

I did finally manage to fall asleep without drugs last night, at 6am. And then was woken by my partner's 3yo daughter coming in to say good morning at 9am (on a Sunday). She's too cute to be cross about it at all! But gosh I wish I'd had a few more hours. Going to be another all-nighter tonight it seems, I can't take meds during the week as I'll end up oversleeping and not being available to work in the morning.

Do you have any chance to have neuroleptics for sleeping purposes in your country?

As that's perceived as an antipsychotic medication, it might sounds scary but over here, neuroleptics are used in very small amounts (maybe a tenth or even less compared to its initial purpose) as sleeping pills as they have wide range of use. Docs here market it as more safer option compared to traditional sleeping pills since what I've let to know, it doesn't cause similar dependence as most of pills. I've also heard that people who suffer from severe insomnia have had help from them. These are naturally prescribed meds only, at least over here.

As you seem to have physical discomfort during night, I guess the docs have already tried to find out every relief for that? May you could also try to find different positions (sitting, etc) for sleeping?

Anyways, I hope that you are able to sleep. Please consult your doctor and discuss about your sleeping issues again if you feel that you're not fine with it. Sleep is so needed for your health.

Had a really bad night last night, only made better by the fact that I found my sleeping tablet and night time pain pills lying on the side in the kitchen. I'm so glad that it wasn't that bad a night on meds, so much better that it was I didn't take them.
