Sing me to sleep

Today, there are two parts to my life: The 12 hours I spend in bed each night trying to fall asleep, with limited success, and the 12 hours I'm up and trying *not* to fall asleep, also with limited success. FML

As a person with severe bipolar, and a really bad permanent back injury with 24/7/365 pain, I feel for you. I can’t get more than 3 hours of sleep unless I stay up for 48hours and crash into bed dead tired. Even then, I may only get 5-6 hours before pain wakes me up and keeps me awake.

Might need to see if you are bipolar. It heavily affects sleep, or may be seasonal depression. At minimum, I suggest if you are heavily affected by caffeine, cut intake by 5 PM. Drink water from there. If you need to, experiment with aroma therapy and audio relaxation. I use myNoise apps on iPhone to make thunderstorms sounds on my stereo with deep rumbles like thunder. For some reason, it calms me down and I feel better being inside with distant thunder in background. But keep trying to find what helps.
