Chronic Insomnia
I suffer from chronic insomnia. I miss out on a whole 2-3 nights sleep a week and the rest of the week get 4-5 hours sleep a night if I am lucky. I cannot take sleeping pills as they make me suicidal. I have tried most of the herbal remedies on the market but so far nothing has worked. I have cut out all tea and coffee. I am desperate. This morning I nearly had a car accident as I was so exhausted. Please can someone give me some advice.

Tracey, I wrote something on sleep and insomnia a while ago and if you mail me at, I’ll send you copy. Read it and let me know if you have any question. Good luck.
