I took a few night to train my brain to accept that bed was a place for rest and not sleep. if sleep happened then great, if it didn't then owell. Forcing yourself to fall asleep never works but trying to stay awake does (hence your TV show working to help you fall asleep) I've had a few months of what I describe as hell, at least one kid has been ill or in hospital so I've been up and down, giving medicine, inhalers, nebulisers, drops or whatever and I've become broken. Before I would have been angry and shouted a lot but now it's a case of going back to bed and lying down. I just think to myself that if I fall asleep then yay, if I don't then at least I am lying here warm and cosy getting rest. Rest is all I need. I always fall asleep untill I'm needed again without tossing and turning, needing to stare at my phone or watch TV anymore. It just took a few nights to get my brain to play along. x

Podcasts tend to help me- discovered it by surprise that they sent me to sleep but just something about listening to a voice talking calms me down!
