Alegna, I also have sleep issues. Like you, I go to sleep, but can't seem to stay asleep. I've tried counting sheep, counting backwards. But, I have found one thing that seems to help. It sounds kinda crazy, but I read about it someplace, and it's something about the different parts of the brain used for this. Try naming something in alpha order......for example.....fruit.....apple, banana, cantaloupe, etc. You can pick anything....but try to think of one for each letter of the alphabet. Hope this makes sense. Give it a try, and let me know if it works for you.
Good luck to you, and again, welcome to AZ.
