Ever since I was little I've always been a slight sleeper. Some days I have no problems falling asleep, other nights I toss and turn all night long. Some of my weird sleep habits include the following. No matter how tired I am, if I take a nap during the day I won't fall asleep at all that night. I am perfectly fine falling asleep in a well lit room with the tv on but the minute the tv and lights go off I'm wide awake. If something wakes me up, such as a phone call, the dogs or the Hubby either as I'm falling asleep or am asleep I again am up all night.
What usually helps me fall asleep is the tv. I need some sort of background noise to help me sleep. For awhile the hubby put up with it but last night he told me he couldn't deal with it anymore. He says that he ends up staying up to finish watching the movie while I fall asleep. Even if I pick a movie he is sure to hate he will watch the movie until the end. He stated that last night was our last night to watch tv while going to bed.
Now I don't know what to do. I've tried everything to help me fall asleep. Warm milk, wine, and once I even tried Tylenol pm. That made me hallucinate and sleep walk! So I'm afraid to try anything like that again.
So now I have to try and figure out other ways to fall asleep. Any ideas?
