    You could maybe put in other 'positive' tags – clicking the tag would actually reinforce the positive aspects of – whatever it was!

    This reply has taken me a while – must have hit the twitter button and was on Sleepio twitter…....... Dr. Kyle I try the train going through the station but unfortunately it wants to stay there and I do try “the”. I think this one works best for me because it makes me concentrate on my breathing as I say “the” on exhale. Think I must just bore myself into sleeping at that point.

    I've always found the tagging device useful, you can really see what's affecting sleep as well as the posted list on the left.

    Did you try the quarter of an hour rule? Getting out of bed shows an acceptance that sleep might come at that time, but by going into another room, distracting yourself with another non-stimulating task, might prepare you better for when you do feel sleepy-tired and ready to drop off?

    I have been bad about the tagging but because I am a bit up and down just now I am going to religiously add these.

    I agree with the tagging device! VERY helpful! I believe the CBT will be VERY helpful for me and my continuing denial of how very much I AM impacted by the FIBRO. Ugh.

    But I was really sleepy tired. My eyes were gritty but I just couldn't switch off and I kept thinking I would go to sleep. Think when you are working in the morning you feel that if you get up you won't get back to sleep and it is cold. Will however start on that again to see if it helps.

    I agree sometimes, the what if….....but it's more something disturbing and upsetting happens which disturbs the day-timer equaliberium and you get that sinking feeling.

    Sorry folks, we've come to the end of the hour. Save your questions for next time and we'll be sure to get round to them. Take care and have a good week/good sleep.
