    About 20-30 min before bed I get anxious (while i'm laying in bed).. i start to move around, tossing and turning.. once I do go to sleep, I feel like I wake up at least 10 times to toss and turn.

    Wtf =(

    Yeah get a bottle of melatonin. I usually take 6mgs on the nights I have trouble falling asleep. I usually stack it with some lecithin and I wake up feeling great the next morning.

    I got the same problem Mike. Ever since I've been lifting heavy and intense, I can't sleep at night. I toss and turn and my muscles are all tense.
    ZMA didn't do shit for me. Still figuring out how I'm going to solve this.

    but srsly, I dunno if a doctor would give you muscle relaxers or not but it couldn't hurt to try. You could tell him you get restless legs and shit after lifting and its impacting your sleep and fucking up your life/job/whatever.

    maybe it's partially anxiety and partially a shitty bed or bedding stuff. I slept with a shitty old blanket last night and a subpar pillow and I woke up like 20 times. Usually i wake up once or twice tops and it's because I have to piss like crazy.

    I get this too sometimes.

    I'm fine all day and then when I lay down to hit the sack I start thinking about school/work/bills/etc....
    Causes anxiety and gets my mind racing and I also wake up often in the middle of the night.

    I used to use nyquil when this happened, but figured it was bad for me. Then I switched the melatonin. Melatonin helps, but isn't nearly as strong as other stuff.

    Xanax of Valium is the best. Helps you sleep, stops anxiety, etc... But the stuff is terribly addictive. This is why I try to never use it unless I absolutely cannot get to sleep or I am flying on a plane.

    Doc gave me a months worth of Valium once when I hurt my back real bad to help me sleep. Best month of sleep of my life, lol.

    I know what you mean man. I've got a rule with my girl - no serious shit within 2 hours of bed. No money, job, bill, etc etc talk after dinner. It can wait 8 hours. Tell me at dinner or tell me tomorrow. When I lay down, I just think about a huge white wall and I'm usually asleep in 10 minutes.

    That's actually a good rule anyway even if you don't care about getting to sleep easily.

    Who wants to hear about that shit late at night anyway?

    Seems like my gf waits until the end of the night to talk to me about serious shit and I'm just like, wtf you couldn't tell me any of the time before now? :mad:

    My girl's the opposite.

    She wants to talk about stuff and complain about stuff first thing in the morning. I hate it because sometimes it's the first thing I hear and kinda sets the tone for the day.

    My gf complains all throughout the day, but then chooses late night to talk about serious shit and it's getting so old.

    I think being on makes me sick of my gf and makes me want to be single. :mamoru:

    Apparently it's a widespread phenomenon.

    I'll wait to see how I feel when I'm off before I make any drastic decisions.:mamoru:

    You'd better. Because when you get off you're going to shrink and deflate so bad no women will want you. Better keep someone in the reserves homie.
