Dear Dish-it: I'm Sleep Deprived

Sleepy asks: I have gotten into the habit of watching Youtube on my iPad or a movie on my portable DVD player in bed. It started when I had a few nightmares and my mom said I could watch a movie in bed. But now I can’t sleep without it! I can’t fall asleep until midnight and in the morning I am so tired. How can I overcome this addiction? Back to Article

If you can't sleep place a head of lavender in a
tissue or drop some lavender oil on a cotton bud. Place this under your pillow or inside your pillow
case (the latter works better). This may help you
sleep.

I have this problem but I go to my bed and just lay there but I don't sleep. Sometimes I do go to sleep but it's only for a couple of hours. I've stayed up for days and nothing really happens to me. I don't get sick or feel tired. I just can't seem to sleep.

I used to be like you- I could never sleep because I was always watching a movie and listening to music- and it caused my immune system and I was absent from school over 139 times LAST YEAR! I'm lucky I was able to pass last year. I felt so sick, and mopey and icky and I couldn't function at ALL. But.. close your eyes with some calming night sounds (mp3 or your ipod) listen to music you can barely hear, because it looks like you only fall asleep to sound...

OK there is a Jr. Mod here named -Kat- and I don't know why but for some odd reason she hates me. When ever I try to talk to her, she acts like I don't cease to exist. It hurts when she does that. I try talking to her but all she does is ignore me like I never even spoke to her or never entered the chat. I just don't know what to do anymore :'(

Be careful little dude, the road will be real tough, your mind will start working differently but it will happen so slowly you won't even notice it... You'll start to notice thing you hadn't seen before, things you'd rather have ignored the whole time. and boom your no longer a kid so to speak. Friends leaving you? are they younger than you? cause you can just tell them their voices will break too. My 7 year old cousin called me a "Teenagerk" and I didn't even do anything jerkworthy... I was just a Teen and that's all that mattered. I unfortunately don't think I have any particularly good advice for you, but I totally understand... It takes great determination to carry on living... but it is worth trying...
