I am an insomniac, I have had trouble sleeping for over 20 years. I can fall asleep at night as soon as my head hits the pillow but come 2.30am I am wide awake. I have tried it all, every herbal remedy available, I have done hypnotherapy and begged my Dr for something to help me. The Dr’s answer is that it’s been going on for so long we need to find the reason and sleeping pills won’t help.
It has now become my habit to get out of bed at 2.30 and watch TV with a snack. I am a sensible person and know this is not a good routine but before I know it I’ve eaten a bowl of chips or 1/2 pkt of biscuits. I go through the whole day eating healthy and in moderation but as soon as I’m awake in those early hours I’m in the pantry. I see the weight piling on and every one around me wonders how when I eat so little.
