In going insane with 2am waking?! (Me.)

I had terrible sleep issues when I was in my 20s. 30s slept just fine.

Since having ds who was a horrific sleeper for 3 years my sleep is now fucked.

I wake at around 2am every morning and usually don't get back to sleep. If I do it's around 5am.

I'm also an incredibly light sleeper now. I wear ear plugs and eye mask and have a noise box. I've now slept in a separate room from dh for years so he doesn't wake me which is making us both miserable.

I tried zopiclone years ago but it didn't stop the waking up at all. And I don't want to rely on sleeping tablets.

I'm at my wits end. I do all of the breaking and relaxation stuff, nothing works. Tried staying in bed reading, getting up and doing something etc.

Any advice? I've been to see three different doctors and they all just advise more exercise (until recently I averaged well over 20,000 steps a day) and typical no screen, no coffee etc. No help.
