With what you are going through, I'd say it is one of two things:

* Stress
* You can't shut your mind off

As a sufferer of a serious type of medically diagnosed insomnia, I feel your pain.

I can't say get rid of the stress, because it isn't as simple as that. I can't say shut your mind off, because that isn't an easy task.

All I can say is do something that relaxes you and see if you can just drift off. Warm bath, cup of herbal tea, a cool, dark room, maybe a boring book.....

Do you know if there has been a cellphone tower of any kind recently switched on near your home? This sounds like something that may stem from issues with the pineal gland, which is affected by electromagnetic fields.

Then again, the stress and worry hypotheses seem to do justice as well. Maybe you need to consciously relax; breathing techniques can help alleviate stress.

Never is an easy task, getting rid of insomnia.
(I was going for more of a sleepless-looking smiley, but that's close enough.)
