To Sleep...perchance to not feel like crap

I have always had trouble getting to sleep. I am not one of those people that just hits the pillow and is off to dream land. I lay in the bed, night after night, for an interminable amount of time. Most everyone I know just pleasantly drifts off, but not me. I think about the things that happened during the day and I worry about stuff that is coming up at work. It doesn't really matter, I can always come up with something to fret about. I alternate between four hours of sleep and 10 hours. I'll have several bad nights and then crash on some of the other days. I need to figure out how to get a restful night - every night. I'll take suggestions...

Ambien- the best night of sleep I have ever had.

I've heard that getting regular exercise helps... but you know more about exercise than I do. Personally, I consider it a last resort.

Melatonin--it works great!

Amateurs! I have always had a rough time sleeping and have tried many things, here is what works best.
1. Librarian logic - See how well you know Dewey!
2. Fantasize - not only dirty stuff, but anything that helps your mind wonder.
3. Build your dream home.

Hope it helps!

Drink until you pass out. Every night. It works for me.

All lovely suggestions. Maybe next week I will try each one and see which works best. Well, aside from the Ambien. Apparently, it makes me crazy and do crazy things. No thanks.
