Do you snore? Its possible you could have an obstruction or breathing problem without knowing it, try all of the above, give it a month or so then get checked out if it dosent improve

I hadn't thought of that. OH says I do snore.  He got me some herbal Nytol at Asda this morning. 30 in a pack and you take 2 an hour before bed. I'll try them and if I get no joy it will be a trip to the doctors, I just don't like bother them until I've tried everything else.

Thanks all and please keep the advice coming. I'm prepared to try anything to get a full nights sleep.

Thanks all. I'm not stressed, not going through the menopause, ( I'm 55) , don't put the telly,PC, kindle on when I get home from work, I do take my phone up to bed, I have to. (OH is a driver and is on the road).

I don't dream, so I know I'm not going into a deep sleep.

I'm thinking of trying herbal Nytol tablets. Anyone tried these?

I know this is not a gardening problem, (sorry), but I'm hoping you kind people can help me.

No matter what time I go to bed I get to sleep no problem, but about 2 hours later I am awake again feeling as if I have slept all night. I'm then just dozing on and off for the rest of the night. This has been going on for about 3 months now.

I have cut out coffee completely, only drink a maximum of 4 cups of tea a day, and none after 6 O'clock. 

I have tried getting up for a while then going back to bed, but that doesn't work.

I have had two weeks off work(holiday) during this time, no difference.

This is really getting to me now,as come mid afternoon I'm exhausted!

I don't want to resort to taking sleeping tablets, so was hoping you kind people have got any ideas how I can kick my body back into rhythm.

I can beat that. My uncle would never sign his full name unless it was legally binding. His middle name was 'Unexpected'

I made a doctor's appointment for Monday afternoon telling the receptionist I was on early shift. About an hour later I had to ring back and change it when I remembered I was actually on late shift.

Happy Sunflowers

Two of my three remaining sunflowers are about 6' tall, the other is only about 3'. None of them are showing any signs of a flower yet.

I'm not old, it's just that my mind says I can do something, but my body says I can't.
