Do any of you ladies suffer from insomnia? How do you deal with it?

I've had insomnia on and off my whole life. I have been up since 3 (it's half six now) although this isn't insomnia, it's because of this stupid cough. I decided to give up trying to go to sleep and hang out on JM for an hour before I have to get ready for work instead!

I have problems with insomnia a lot. One thing I did was completely cut out caffeine from my diet. That has helped some. I also take benadryl or unisom if I really can't sleep.

Yep- and I'm permanently on benadryl I actually developed insomnia quite bad when I was pregnant with my daughter (she's 4 now).. it literally started the night I got my BFP- the DR. thinks it had something to do with hormones. And he (and my midwife) told me to take benadryl back then since it was safe for me in pregnancy, or I wasn't sleeping at all. 4 years later, I still need it to sleep. They want to do a sleep study on me, but ehhh... I really don't want to, I'm stubborn.

I have NO issues staying asleep or anything.. I just can't sleep if I don't take something for it. At this point, some of it may be in my head (I get it stuck in my head that I WONT sleep if I don't take something, even if I may).. ::

((((((hugs)))))) I can identify in a way, not so much for me but my DH went through years of the same thing. He still has issues every now and then. Have you thought of trying hypnosis or self-hypnosis?

No, but I should!
My husband just wants me to stop taking the meds.. he thinks it's all in my head and that if I give it a week without them, I'll probably sleep just fine. But, geez.. I'll be a zombie.
