Hi,Does anyone have the same problem. That is I lie in bed tossing & turning tying the bed clothes in knots thinking I must get some sleep when in fact I AM asleep.

  1. you are definitely not alone in your struggle with sleep. You may find the results from our 4th Annual Parkinson's Disease in America Survey interesting.

      Regards, Suzanne-

        time to head back to bed I thank you for your communication & I will be back soon

        1. Sweet dreams KeithB. Hope you get the sleep you need!
          Blessings to you, Suzanne T.

      2. I'm not sure about your thing of thinking that you must get some sleep whilst actually being asleep but have you tried an online course called Sleepio? I did and no longer consider bed-time a nuisance. I may have been lucky but I opted out after just five weeks but you can stay in touch with them as long as it takes. You'll be asked to keep a sleep diary and then log in weekly for the next session. You'll be guided along by a cartoon professor in whom, I for one, developed a liking which meant that I happily went along with his suggestions which, by around week 3, got a little more tricky because it centred on bed-time restriction. At the time, this felt a little counter-intuitive but it turned out to be the crux of the matter in my case. Turned out I was going to bed too early and staying in bed too long! Weird? Try it, my friend. it is absolutely free!
