    This helped my sleep so much

    I just wanted to share this post with this community. I have always had so much trouble falling asleep. Up for at least 3 hrs after getting in bed. Eliminating blue/green light at night and getting more sun during the day helped so much. https://selfhacked.com/blog/top-25-methods-for-better-sleep-and-circadian-rhythm-entrainment/

    Unrefreshing sleep and tired all day long

    I'm 36 years old. Not a typical sleep apnea candidate. 5'8, 155 pounds and quite in shape/muscular. Only a 15" neck size. Possibly a larger tongue than normal. Since I was in my early teenage years (possibly even before), I've felt exhausted every day no matter how much I slept. Later elementary school and high school was awful for me. I have days when I feel so tired that it seems hard to focus enough to say my words without slurring them or speaking with a lisp. I have never been....

    Complicated dreams keeping me from feeling rested.

    Hey everyone, This is sort of new to me but wanted to see if anyone has heard of this before. I generally have no problem falling asleep although I have restless nights every now and then. My brain is generally overactive and I struggled with an anxiety and panic disorder but that doesn't usually give me issues with falling asleep. However, lately even though I do fall asleep quickly, my dreams are long and complicated and I can feel that they are making my brain work full force to solve the....

    Need help for a friend who is in rough shape.

    Hello everyone. I am new to these boards and come seeking advice. I have a close friend who is narcoleptic. He has been so for many years now. Throughout these many years he has tried many different medications, all have worked to some extent or another BUT all have ended up making him sick. Why? This is because he has a rare allergy to an ingredient that is found in a lot of common pill-form medicines. The exact name escapes me at this moment but I think it's something along the lines of Titanium....

    Before Sleep....

    Taken shortly before sleep, it helps shorten the time needed to fall asleep due to the melatonin content. The supplement also contains lemon balm leaves, hops extract, chamomile and saffron, which help relax the body and contribute to relieving tension and irritation, as well as help in falling asleep and maintaining a healthy sleep.

    Chronic fatigue

    I am a 7 year Fibromyalgia survivor, I was diagnosed in 2013. It has taken me a very long time to get my meds right since being diagnosed. I have jumped throgh their hoops because of the Opoid clamp down. They cut me off of that not knowing if I was gonna go through withdrawals from 5 mg of vicodin. Then I was put on another pain reliever and muscle relaxer with an anti anxiety medication. With all of our technology you think thay they could come up with something less addictive with all of the medications....

    Too deep a sleep...

    Hi there, I am a female, in my mid-sixties. On an average, say a couple times a month, I fall into what seems like an extremely deep sleep level from which I have a very hard time "coming to" in the morning. I am a self-professed "night owl", going to bed between 12-2am. I generally sleep well, awakening to use the bathroom twice during the night. When I fall into these very deep sleeps, it's usually in the early am, say around 6-7 am. I am always having intense dreams during....
