Usually just stare in to space - but mind is racing too much for that at the minute - nothing new like

Audio books are good - yes but if you fall asleep I can never find my place back. I love to read but can't concentrate long enough these days

Im the same.. i tried sleeping pills but so far none have made a difference in fact they kept me more awake as i was constantly thinking about the fact that i took them so i should feel sleepy lol

I hate Nights!! wish tv was better at night :)

I have sleepers but don;t take them all the time cos they stop working - zopiclone do it for me for a few hours - if I am in the mood I can stay in bed sleeping until 12 noon - I plan to go back to bed anyway - maybe have a :tea: I'm thirsty

Cheers - not gone anywhere yet - am really thirsty - I think when you get in the mindset of thinking must sleep, must sleep it just becomes impossible sleepers or no sleepers.

Anyway I am not very interesting to talk to at thiss time of the morning - not too sociable anyway most of the time haha - no I am if I try - its a bit early though isn;t it.

Nothing I have been off sick for 16 months and now I am out of work - I try to get motivated but its very hard when you are ill.

Good thing looking after grandad - but don;t forget to look after yourself too - please make an appointment if you really need to go.
