doloresonthedottedline: litespeed74: Can't sleep?  Get a cuddly feline. the purring and warmth next to me knocks me out.  Pretty soothing and relaxing.

God, me too. Our cat is usually really antisocial but when he lays down on my chest, I can hardly hold me head up.

Jesus H Christ on a cracker, sometimes it takes me until 2 or 3 to fall asleep.  My cat meows at 4 in the morning wanting to be fed, and when I don't hear her or just ignore her she claws my foot and bites me until I get up and feed her.  When she's done eating she wants to run around the house and meow as loud as she can which wakes my kids up (my oldest is now 3).
I get her attention and bring her to the bathroom and I shower for work while she calms down.   Pets that need to be fed or let out are not sleep helpers.  They're slow killers

I've had insomnia since Thanksgiving 2006. (I can date the onset.) It's as if there was a switch in my head that got thrown into the No Sleep position. Until I was able to get the medicine for it -- around 6 weeks later -- it was horrifying. None of those little checklist things they so confidently prescribe -- get out of bed, take a bath, dim lights in the evening, no caffeine -- do anything at all.

It isn't obvious why some people can sleep and some can't. But there are quacks out there claiming to help insomniacs. What helps, unfortunately, are chemicals. And they eventually erode your ... memory.
