However, lately I am suffering from SEVERE insomnia and get 4-5 hours only
It makes it impossible to function the next day and because of this my studying is on delay now. I have tried using supplements to help aid sleep, but they aren't so helpful and I don't want to become dependant on them.
take yogurt before sleepin, it really helps ...
