    After losing my husband of 49 years it has been difficult sleeping through the nigt ….I wake up and my mind wonders…I have no problem falling asleep….magnesium helps but does not help once I wake up.

    I am so sorry for your loss. It’s little wonder that your sleep has been suffering as a result of you losing your husband. Fortunately, there are many steps you can take to improve your sleep and prevent your insomnia from becoming more entrenched.

    Can you tell me a bit more about your sleep so I may offer a few suggestions? When do you normally go to bed, when do you normally get out of bed, and roughly how many hours of sleep do you get each night at the current time?

    Hello daydreamer
    Sorry to hear about that. Maybe somehow processing your loss could help your sleep?

    Maybe a therapy group, arts, sports, socialising…

    Just an idea. I wish you all the best!
