Now I have a great wife and a child on the way, A not so bad a job, but the last month I have not been sleeping at all just lying there in bed turning over and over till I get fed up and get out again and drink mugs full of coffee, Work is becoming a more and more differcult can't focus on anything. I feel so low and I don't know why, I have tried most sleeping tablets to see if they help with no such differance at all.
I don't think it's even stress from the baby coming cause I feel fine about it. I'm a easy going guy but now feel so depressed and nackered cause I can't sleep whatever I try to do.
My diet is stable I eat all the right things in moderation, and the odd sweet thing now and again, I have seen my docter about it and he just give me new sleeping tablets. so any help here would be great, thanks
I feel like that at times, luckily mine never lasts for more than a few days. Are you giving yourself some time to unwind before bed time? For example I generally take a hot bubble bath every evening to calm myself before bed time. Sometimes I like to exert my energy by listening to music or exercising. I have found that if I don't give myself a little alone time to just unwind, that is the nights I cannot sleep or even fall asleep. Even if my day wasn't stressful or anything I still need that time. Maybe this will help?
I'm not a medical person or anything, but it seems obvious to me that you are stressed about the new responsibility you are soon to have. Of course you are excited about the baby but now you have all these new thoughts and worries about your wife's health, baby's health, the birth itself, the financial part of having a new baby. You are going to be a Daddy. That's a big deal. I think you need to accept the stress of this new phase of your life and do all you can to learn about becoming a father and talk with your wife about how you both want to raise the baby.
For the sleeping part, increase your exercising to tire your body out more, or take a hot bath or drink warm milk. Anything you can think of to relax yourself. If you don't mind me saying this - you'll be fine.
