    I haven't been able to sleep in 3 weeks. Well, not entirely, but I'll go to bed at 11 or midnight, and just lay there for 5 hours. I try OTC sleep aids, they don't even put me to sleep. Tonight, I didn't sleep for a minute. I laid in bed from 1 to 5, took a 15 minute shower to try to relax, laid in bed until 6 and finally gave up. Now I am so tired but I have so much to do today. I start class at 11 and only have 3.5 hours of down time until 10 PM tonight. Ughhh this is sooo frustrating, I just want to sleep. I slept like a baby Saturday night, 12+ hours, I didn't get out of bed until almost 1. But go figure, when I have to go to bed early and I have stuff to do the next day I can't sleep at all.

    I don't think sleep aids always work like they are supposed to. There must be other ways you can fall asleep, maybe some you haven't even tried yet. I hope that you will be able to get a full night's rest very soon.

    You could try some conventional stuff, like a warm glass of milk, soft lyricless music, etc...?
