OF FUCK !
    #1482960 - 04/22/03 05:25 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I have been up for 5 days straight with maybe a couple hours of sleep.  My body has gotten so used to it, I don't even feel tired.  I am turning delusional and sometimes feel pain in my head, I have never had it this bad.  I even ate 3 valium which usually always help.  I am on an SSRI, which seems to always make my iinsomnia worse/  What should I do?  I completely forgot how to sleep.  Every sound makes me jumjp and my mind can't stop going.  I should quit ALL drugs cold turkey, drink water, do my routine as best as I can, and hopefully my body will faint or what.  Luckily these benzos are helping my anxiety at least.  I think I am starting to go insane.  How much more can my body take.  :confused:

I am thinking about just getting plastered and force myself to sleep, and have my mom check on my breathing every once in a while and monitor me. Maybe I just forgot what life is all about. I shouldn't need all these SSRI's and crap and just stop thinking about things constantly. I mean right now, I wish I went completely insane.

I mean I don't remember how. My brain has gotten so used to being up so long I just CAN"T sleep. I sit in bed, and I can't lay there and go to sleep at all. I have never experienced stabbing sensations in my brain though until now.

Droid, are you on any type of amphetamine or anything? If not, those benzos should really help. I dont recommend alcohol. I recommend the benzos for a sleep aid. Im sorry you are going through this, but what has caused this? Just a natural insomniac? Maybe you shouldnt be on those SSRI's?

no unfortantely I will have to suffer all my life it feels like. But for now, I am turning delusional and starting to see patters of light. My pupils are huge, I am sweating, my mind is racing fast as hell and I am having a headache. Is my body going to go into shock or something?

No, you probably shouldnt go into shock. It sounds like your having a panic attack? You took those benzos? How much did you take, and how long ago? If you took those benzos and are having a panic attack, thats prolly not so good. Benzos should keep anxiety down to a minimal. I know its hard, but put on a movie, or some tv, eat some food. TRY to relax.  :frown:

Quitting drugs cold turkey probably won't do you any good in the sleep department, when I stopped my rampant drug use it just made my natural insomnia worse, I went from 4-6 hours of sleep a day to that every other day, I'm too much of a nocturnal person. Now I can get sleep, but it takes a good 4 hours of tossing and turning to do so. If you feel up to it, a couple of bowls of shwag should knock you out.

Good luck man.  Maybe you should stop railing all that rit :wink:  Hope you get to sleep.  After being up so long the hardest part about getting to sleep is stopping your thoughts.  When you lay down just clear your mind and concentrate on your breathing cycle.  Good luck.

Ya, I am not an idiot. I know I have to quit that shit, but for now I have a problem. I get insomnia anyways before I did drugs. I am not on any stimulants now.

THanks for all the support. I know I have had a problem with drugs, but I was always able to sleep before the SSRI's, they fucking whack me up. I seriously can't lay in bed long enough or I get bored now. maybe i should watch tv until my body decides to make me sleep.

Yeah. watching TV could be good. Reading is also good when are trying to sleep - seems to make you more tired if you are tired already. With the thoughts - if you are going to sleep then there is nothing you can do about the subject of them till tomorrow, so you could put off thinking about them till then. Also I find it helps to tense every muscle in my body for 10 seconds and then it relaxes real good. Good luck.

I agree with enotake2 with regards to reading - it rocks :smile:

I also enjoy laying in bed with headphones and visualizing various CDs with my eyes closed.. if you're bored, attempt to "learn" every piece of every sound in every CD you like. I don't listen to music with many lyrics anymore, but I used to have fun attempting to interpret various lines from songs "out-of-context" in as many different ways as I could view...

Something else I wanted to mention was if you just can't sleep (you've been there; where its like already 6:03 and you have to get up by 7:30 or whatever), I suggest doing some writing about whatever comes to mind (draw a blank? start at "A" and WEED through your vocabulary for topics/words that stimulate some "articulatible" (lol I'm quite sure that's not a word) thoughts.. A friend and I were thinking about making a website that categorized and kind of organized a public board of this kind of stuff heh - what do you think? regardless, give that a shot man :smile:

I'll be up for a while with ya :wink:

Hey, you could also do one of those relaxation exercises where you pretend parts of your body are getting really heavy and imagine them disappearing and dropping through the floor, starting from your feet progressing up your body. It's good after the tensing up thing.

yeah good idea there's tons of those types of activities... so many, in fact, that you can extrapolate from them and just make up your own :wink: oftentimes I lay in bed and just watch the darkness - "I'll be damned; darkness isn't dark at ALL!" there's endless mental activities to do with the darkness my man..
