    I've had difficulty for years sleeping through the night. I've tried drinking chamomile tea, got myself a weighted blanket, but none of those help much. A dose of liquid melatonin before bed helps more, but I hate being dependent on something like that.

    of the various ingredients in non-prescription sleeping pills only diphenhydramine hydrochloride works for me. Okay I'll be honest here - WTF is a "weighted blanket"? :unsure:

    Just what it says on the tin. A blanket with heavy material built in, so that it feels like something is holding you. The idea is to make your body think it's being hugged, which studies have shown can profoundly relax some folks.

    Awake since 3am. 3 hours sleep. Going to work now. It's 5:20.

    @spot261 will have his reply in that other thread it's just gonna be astronomically long.

    And of course since this is the most tired I've been in weeks, this will be "lift-12-metric-tons-of-steel" day.
