Insomnia is a beast.

Insomnia, yep. I gotta start smoking weed regularly again.
Awwww, you guuuuys!!! Feels good to be back 🙂
Reddit is a black hole! I have been caught at work, huddled over my laptop, crying from laughing so hard. But the gross-outs over there would haunt my dreams if I could sleep long enough to have them. Today's lovely was a photo of a woman who had injected heroin into an infected arm for so long that the arm just sort of rotted, with visible bone. Actually, it was a appetite suppressant for me today-no lunch after that!
I've been having all kinds of trouble sleeping lately, between stress over being out of work, my sister coming to visit for the 1st time in years, and oh, yeah, probably menopause smacking me upside the head, too. 🙁 I'm feeling way too hot all the time, and couldn't sleep last night because of it; this waking up all soggy needs to stop, and soon, because I'm really fed up with it. *sigh*
You are welcome!Are you sure you only look like an addict when picking up your medication?Might want to check in to that.
Hmn. So you're one of the dumbfucks that makes it a rigamarole for me to get medication I actually need, and makes me look like an addict when I pick them up at the pharm. Thanks asshole.
I used to sleep great. Then Enty started talking about Adderall all the time and now I'm up 'round the clock.Skinny and black circles under my eyes.Love the look!
@mooshki, that worked for me. I have night terrors, and it really helps me. I used to take Benadryl, but I had a bad 'hangover' with it when I woke up.
Then why don't they PM me baaaack? Just kidding, I'm too chicken to actually PM anyone on Reddit, let alone the LBGW hotties.
Welcome back to commentland Christopher!
So sorry to hear this. What a terrible struggle! Don't given up hope; they're inventing new meds every day!! There WILL be relief in your future. 🙂
Its brutal ive had interuppted sleep, wide awake all night but prob not sustained like months or anything. I have stuff to do if not sleeping, im pretty used to myself.
Ambien didn't work that well for me. I could get to sleep with it, but it never lasted longer than 5 hours. You could time it.
My family suffers from a genetic circadian rhythm dysfunction called Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome/Disorder (we don't sleep at night). My mother and those of us related to her have it (the step-siblings do not). I have pretty much heard every vampire joke possible, but eventually I just gave up and started working third shift.It's not technically "insomnia", it's just a different sleep cycle, and I suspect that many people who struggle with insomnia actually have it.
I go through periods where I can't stay asleep. I'll fall asleep but wake up 3 hours later and can't get back to sleep at all. Ambien CR has worked out well for me but I only take it after I've had a couple of days with no sleep, And I *know* it's not safe, but I wash it down with one 12oz lone star. Works every time. I do that for a couple of days and usually get right back on track. A 30 pill script can last me a year.
Trazodone. Safe, effective and non-habit-forming.
I'm a long time insomniac myself. I've had a sleep study done, which showed I don't enter REM sleep. I'm notorious for going 2-3 days without sleep, then I will eventually crash for maybe 8 blissful hrs. When it comes to meds I've tried them all, some work for a month or so then it doesn't work. I've woken up with bruises from walking into walls, I've turned on faucets and left them running, left the fridge open, all because of insomnia or the meds.
whats everyone favorite drug of choice
Forget Milli Vanilli, now all i hear is Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggyDiggy, said the boogy, said, up jump the boogy
Melatonin!!!!!!! It's natural, non-addictive, and it doesn't make you drive while sleeping. 🙂
Ive had insomnia since I was a teenager. Heard Colin Farrell would talk to Elizabeth Taylor on the phone at night as they both have/had insomnia. Now that she has gone (RIP). Colin…call me!!
Reddit under the influence is never a good idea, those dudes on LBGW are always checking their comments
Reddit is great for insomniacs. So many goodies to explore! This is one of my personal faves, watching while under any influence is advised (if possible).
I truly feel for people who cannot sleep. It's horrible. I'm one of those lucky people who can sleep anywhere. The Opster is having back issues and once he's awake he's in horrid pain and cannot go back to sleep. It's seriously messing with him.
When I have it bad, even sleeping pills won't help. At least not the currently used benzodiazepines.
Oh, to have lived in the days of real "dolls" like Seconal and Nembutal.
I like my beauty sleep. hmmm mhhh honey.
What's wrong with Puddin'? Poor kittles. Lucky she has you.
Hate to tell you Kno Won but people do die if they cannot sleep. It's a pretty crappy way to go I'd think.
Insomnia. Sigh…I want to sleep but I've been worrying and fretting over my Lil Puddin' (my roomie's cat but I steal kitties, so they're mine now). She's a feisty old girlie, though…just have been staying up holding her and cooing at her.
Why ain't you graced us with your witticisms Chris?
*each not eat
And this is why I take 1mg of Lorazepam to sleep eat and every night. I don't/can't sleep without a little help.
It HAS!!! Been lurking, tho 😉
Just for that, I'll ruin Beethovens Ode to Joy. The words to Clementine fit PERFECTLY to the tune. "In a canyon in a cavern excavating FOR a mine…"
Well I'm not going to be able to resist NOW… Thanks a lot TTM! 😉
Pat Robertson agrees.

OT OT can anyone ever hear the beginning of Bawitaba and not scream "My name is Kiiiiiiiiiiiid!!!!" along with? I startled a lot of old people on the track yesterday
Mr. Cruz! It's been AGES!
And wasn't that great of a movie either.
