Damn insomnia!
    #3216834 - 10/05/04 02:27 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Gotta get up for work in 4 hours....nowhere near tired yet.  I'm sure I'll be ready for some sleep right about the time I have to go back and put in another 12 hour day! :mad2:

Damn man.

My answer: ALCOHOL.

Mix alcohol with ice, drink, if that doesn't cure you, well, go to a professional.

Alcohol makes it hard for me to go to sleep. If I get a buzz it wakes me up, and if Im wasted I get too dizzy when I lay down. I can usually sneak a nap inbetween classes, then I need less sleep at night

i know how that feels.
i usually have turkey lunch meat in the fridge, so i make a 'one slice of bread sandwich' with some turkey and a FAT glass of milk. it helps..

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

shitty dude.  i feel ya, but at least i got 7 hours to try...im starting to grow all sorts of stuff now to try and help it.  doctors dont seem to know much that works so im ditchin their bullshit and trying the natural.  if anyhting works for me ill post.

ive often wondered if it went hand and hand with drug use.  not necesarily the use of drugs causing it but personality types.  people that are more likely to experiment or have a free will may have a connection to insomnia?  its just something i have noticed over with many people.  just a thought.  anyway im going to go contemplate the ceiling again, see how many new spackle mountians i see tonight  :thumbup:

I think you may be onto something there, as far as having an adventurous personality goes. I don't do that many drugs, really. Pot on occasion, shrooms, and abusing my 'script for Xanax (which only lasts about a week or two)...

People who use or would use psychadelic drugs tend to have a more analytical personality. It's hard to sleep when the mind is constantly going.

totally. i often find myself building somethign in the shop, or going outside and thinking of somthing to do to my garden at the ass crack of the night. and many of the peopel i know are quite the same. many of which experiment, all of which are always thinking up somthing.

perhaps this is wher emy love for nature truely stems. it is only when i am out in the middle of the mountains, usually at night, that i can truely come down to earth and jsut totally chill while walking. it really sooths me. its about the only thing on this earth i have found to actually calm me down and actually put me to sleep at a decentish hour.

Yea, my favorite time to read my texts for class is late at night. Seems to sink in really well, especially after sleeping a couple hours. My brain only needs about 4 hours to sort all the information. In fact, I think I'll read a chapter now...

Don't feel bad.

I have a job interview in 4 hours and I can't sleep.

You are not alone.

well with insomnia its generally jsut the deep sleep your missing. rem i think they call it. the part when your eyes do the funky chicken. some poor souls dont sleep a wink for weeks. luckily i get a few hours each night. anyway jsut to clarify what insomnia really is, it isnt jsut having trouble sleeping. some people have insomnia and sleep 12+ hours a day, its just that specific deep sleep[ that is missing, and really fucks up your day.

What really messes me up is those nights where I get 3-4 but dream incredibly (indicating I'm in REM sleep) and freakout all day thinking I'll pass out where I'm standing. Gettin used to it...

The sleepless nights are the worst.

I truly feel your pain, I used to go thru that torture myself.

What helped me was; If it started looking like it was going to be one of those nights where I would be doing nothing but tossing and turning I would make my mind up that I wasn't going to fight it and just call in to work in the morning. And as soon as I reached that decision I would fall asleep within minutes and get my sleep in.

It worked for me, if you have that option open to you give it a try.

Insomnia is the worst thing ever for me. I hate lying there in bed, actively trying to fall asleep. :shake:
