It is uncanny: I can fall asleep in exhaustion during the day. Or more accurately: I could.Then, when it is time to sleep, I can't. I doubt that there is much I have not read or done to help this condition. A sleep-study showed that I don't haver apnea. Medications have produced uneven results, and I am weary of them as a longterm solution. Gayle Greene's book: Insomniac, is right after my heart - but alas it offers no solutions. She has recommended a new book to a friend: I Want to Sleep- Unlearning Insomnia by: Dr. Siegfried Haug. He is a therapist, it seems, and actually believes that insomnia might have a purpose. (Other than torture?)Has anyone read the book?
I don't buy yet another one that tells me inanities like: no coffee, bed for sex and sleep, have your doctor check you for depression and the one i hate the most:try to relax.
