There is a HUGE list of reasons why I’m down but just questioning if any other brides to be are so sleepy they’re dysfunctional?
Very tired. So tired I can’t sleep. Feel like I’m juggling with 43 balls and if I drop one the rest will crash down around me. It’s not wedding things, just life, my brain literally doesn’t switch off and when I do sleep it’s very lightly and fall into very deep sleep about half an hour before the alarm goes off.
Any other sleepy bees around?
Any remedies (they must be free!!!)
Feel better just for sharing!

As someone who suffers freom anxiety, I know how difficult it is to get to sleep when your mind is racing. Even thinking of good things something gets you wound up.
Try taking naps if you can (even if its a small 30 minute power nap after work). I drank tea before bed to help calm me down and put me to sleep. Let go of all the planning when it’s time for bed. I have to keep reminding myself that all the stuff I’m worried about will still be there tomorrow. It’s mind over matter.
Hopefully you can get some sleep. The wedding will be fine, and all the other things in life can wait until tomorrow when your rested and awake.
Good luck (take a vaycay!)

I totally second the tea, but it’s got to be decaf of course. A cup of peppermint tea is a MUST HAVE for me before bedtime.
Also, when I find I can’t sleep cause my mind is going all over the place, I try to take control of my thoughts by fantasizing. About whatever. Inserting myself into a book I’ve read, or a movie I’ve seen. Just keep it away from thinking about your wedding, and you’ll find the story in your head lulling you into sleep.

I’ve been tired, too. When the wedding planning died down, I was able to sleep but then, when we hit a bump…I’m back to not being able to sleep. I’ve been reading before bed to get my mind off things. Would that help you?
