I’m 53 days away from my wedding, and I can’t sleep! Maybe a few minutes here and there, but it’s going on about 4 days now and I’m ready to cry out of frustration.
I just lay there awake. I’m not stressed, I just can NOT fall asleep for the life of me.
I even tried taking Melatonin, I took 2 tonight and I’m still sitting here wide awake at 1 am. This is getting ridiculous. 🙁
Help. Anyone else?

If you’re having that much trouble, I’d go talk to your doctor.

Probably too much on your mind even if you don’t feel stressed! Try akin a bath, definitely out away your electronics, they stimulate the mind, write or read a book quietly etc…
Pone of my favorite ways to et myself to relax is to imagine myself as realistically as possible lying in a hammock swaying in thbraced in a tropical beach, imagining how I feel calm and relaxed in that moment. It helps to focus on something calling. I’ve also focused on relaxing every tiny muscle in my body from my toes up which can also help you focus on something else! Good luck and get some sleeps!

I went to a sleep doctor for my insomnia and she taught me some techinques that really worked. The most important rule was not to stay in bed if you don’t fall asleep within 20 minutes.

Tylenol PM was my best friend for like 2 mos before my wedding. I wasn’t sressed either just too much to think about.

@Magdalena: yeah, i think about that all the time. I lay there and think how stupid it is to watch the time tick away, but then of course I always hope I’m on the verge of falling asleep, so I don’t move. And then 2 hours go by.
Thank god I finally got a good night’s sleep last night, after about a week of being a zombie. I worry that I won’t sleep at all the night before my wedding.

@Sunshine09: PLEASE SLEEP the day before your wedding even if you have to take something to sleep. I didn’t sleep the day before the rehearsal dinner and it was pure hell. I couldn’t enjoy myself with my family because I was so tired and there so much to do on so little sleep. Do yourself a favor and sleep even it’s a medicated sleep.
