    I’m beginning to think there is something physically wrong with me. I feel tired when I go to bed but as soon as my head hits the pillow, a sleepless night follows and I can only seem to get a couple of hours sleep by taking some OTC sleeping pills. HELP! I’ve been a short sleeper for years but now I am lucky if I get 2 hours in the early hours!

    Hello Vicky and welcome to the forum. First, let me reassure you that you are not alone! Everyone here knows what it’s like to only manage a couple of hours of sleep. When you go to bed at night, what do you think is stopping you from being able to fall asleep?

    I seem to become acutely aware of all that is going on around me and also in my head. Can’t seem to block things out.

    Sorry to hear about that racing mind keeping you up during the night, Vicky. Can you tell me a bit more about your sleep? What is a typical night like? When do you normally go to bed, when do you get out of bed, and roughly how many hours of sleep would you say you get on a typical night?
