Hello there I know this is probably off-topic for this community but I really need help, and was the closest QnA site for health that I found. Plus, I am already a StackExchange user. I also tried searching it on Google, and couldn't find it.
Here is the issue I am a 15 year old male, who suffers sometimes with episodic insomnia like a day or two in one or two months.
For example, last Sunday-Monday night I had trouble sleeping. I figured that since I couldn't fall asleep I might of well do something. So I decided to do a fun project at 9-11PM. The Project was making a laptop into a keyboard desktop computer, since the monitor was badly damage with cracks and light spots. When I started the project I was tired, and when I got finish with it dead tired. so I went to bed at like 1:30 AM for the second time, and fall asleep at properly 3-4 AM. So when I went to school, I brought about 1 liter of coffee with me. (I don't drink coffee that much like once in a month or something on those lines, and that is the same with tea, soda, and chocolate. So I don't have that much caffeine tolerance. BTW the coffee tasted mildly bitter.) I was tired thoughout the day, and when I got home, dead tired. Well I went to bed at 6PM, and 6 hour later about 12:30AM right now. Still tired and can't fall asleep but I am dead tired. And I am a human who needs at least ~9.5-11 hours of sleep to not feel tired the next day.
So does anyone know tricks how to go to sleep? I couldn't find any. You may say music but it only tired me to a point before keeping me up. Or take sleeping drugs, but the last time when this I took Melatonin. And the only thing that did for me was make me more tired, without helping me go to sleep. Right now I feel dead tired with a somewhat awake feeling. It is an odd, annoying feeling and hard to explain.
