    First: get rid of any electrical equipment in your bedroom and turn off the WiFi:  EMF emissions are a known source of DSS. Second, make sure you have an hour of morning sunlight on your face each day, since that helps to set your body clock. Third, you can try melatonin 1/2 hour before bed.

    Make sure you have no computer, TV or ipad within 2 hours of going to bed. Read a peaceful novel or listen to some music (classical, not rap). If you still can't fall asleep, then there will be a more subtle cause: maybe anxiety? maybe you are locked into a post-viral syndrome (like never well since glandular fever)?

    Try the above suggestions and see if that helps.
