  • Try Chamomile tea before bed. You should also talk to your Dr. They may need to give you something different to help you sleep.

  • The best thing would be to get to the root of the problem. Why can you only sleep well next to your boyfriend? Are you scared or insecure about something?

  • Melatonin can help. Usually when I cant sleep it's because I cant turn my brain off (if ya know what I mean) but I dont seem to have that problem when my husband is here with me. I've found that if I count backwards by 3s from a really high number it distracts me and I fall asleep before I get to 0.

  • no i'm not scared or anything i think i just like having him next to i haven't been able to sleep well since i was about 8? Nicoled02 - thanks i'll try that first going up then coming down. or else i try reciting poems or something like that...numbers just kinda drive me crazy. an no kind of tea helps. an it's not unusual for me to stay awake for almost 3 - 6 days with no sleep. i tried cutting out all sweets (except root beer) an coffee but nothing works. an doctors don't help i already tried. i just don't get why i can sleep well next to my bf an yet i can't sleep anywhere else.
