i listen to classical music- mostly string quartets. That helps me to sleep-Puccini and some lighter Mozart and Handels water works. Some romantic DoWop helps -like the BoxTops, the Philly do wop is really good. I find the Jersey sound too strong for insomnia. Don Williams of country music is very good and soothing. Don't get insulted-but the Irish Penny Whistle-that's an instrument-soothes my hounds a lot. I know this isn't what you expected, but it's helped me a lot through the years-it got me through menopause. seriously
Hi! Good to know your are OK! Regarding the insomnia, i would recommend a sleep mask, ear plugs, a regular time for going to bed and getting up, reading before sleeping and a sleep aid such as Melatonin, or if you can afford it, a prescription medication if the insomnia has been going on for too long. Amitriptyline really helped me. I hope you get some sleep soon.
Hi Eve, if you google "good sleep hygiene", there is a wealth of information out there, that run the gamet of never watching TV in your bedroom, to only having a red display on any electrical device such as a clock, to temperature, no caffeine, etc. That just might cure the insomnia, provided that it isn't caused by chronic pain. Then you are talking an entirely different story. Do you know the cause of the insomnia?
Hello Eve54... I'm new on here so I doubt that I have ever talked to you yet, but let me say to you anyway, welcome back!! lol I have had insomnia on and off since I was a pre-teen! It can be nerve racking!! There are many newer sleep-aids that your doctor can prescribe to you that are safer than the older ones. They have Ambien and Lunesta, and similar drugs.But I have to warn you now that they can have some really strange and sometimes dangerous side effects for some people, myself included. But everyone is different , and many people have great success with them so if I were you, and your insomnia continues to be a problem, I would go to my Doctor and see if they can help you. In the mean time you may want to try some of the over the counter meds. Sorry that I couldn't be of more help.
