However, morning light on your skin can still wake you up --- you have light-sensing nerves there, too.

 

I didn't know that.  Thank you for this information.

I'm not tapering yet but I do get insomnia sometimes and there are some free apps you can get on your phone. They are guided meditation and they really help me to fall asleep. They seem to work better if I use earbuds to listen rather than just normal. There is another app called Calm that has natural sounds like a soft rain, bonfire, lake etc. Then it has mindful meditations that I really like to help with stress, anxiety or just to use to chill. There are many meditation apps and I had to download them to try them and then delete until I found the ones I liked the best. Some have binaural beats that are supposed to be good for Neuroplasticity.

I need an advice on acute insomnia. It's been almost 3 weeks since I lost ability to sleep. I don't know how to explain, but I just don't want to sleep. I go to bed, close my eyes, try to relax, but nothing happens. I don't feel myself sleepy or tired. I don't feel sleepy on next day either. This drives me crazy. Is there a medication-free treatment?

You have classic withdrawal syndrome. Please see my responses in your Introductions topic.

The least bad med is an antihistamine such as Benadryl, but it can go paradoxical with regular use. Use search in this forum to see our discussions about this.

 

Thanks Alto. Also I see you and others are/were taking Aspirin 81mg... Is this something that can be used more often? One night out of 2 for example?

Thank you.
