When you close your eyes after you've had a long day and are tired and just turned out the lights, do you see little paterns of light that are still remaining in your eyes (I guess that's why they're there )? They are usually just little patterns that you have to concentrate to see them, they're not just obvious. But anyways, if you actually concentrate on them, and follow them, it works by clearing your brain from all of your day to day problems and allowing you to relax. They won't put you to sleep directly, but they will clear your brain, which will eventually help you sleep.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, just look for them tonight, I bet you'll see them. It sounds weird, but it works for me.
i understand what you mean Slomo, one of these tips have to help

I think the idea of a routine works well. Get your body and mind used to doing the same things before you fall asleep. Sit down and read for a few minutes, have a bottle of booze, whatever. But do it consistently just before you fall asleep.
Also - don't use your bed for anything but sleep (and sex, but that should go unsaid). Don't read in bed. Don't watch TV in bed. Get your mind used to the idea that the bed is used only for sleep - and it will make it easier to sleep when you're in bed.
I've tried everything under the sun including just about everything in this thread. No dice. I'm considering doing one of those deals where the doctors hook up all kinds of moniters to you and watch you for a night. I can't sleep anyway, so what harm can it do?
Good luck finding a cure for yours!
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
