I barely slept for the first two weeks of May. I know it was because I was worried about my Dad and some other crap that was going on.

Thankfully all is much better now, and I've been able to get about 6-7 hours for a few nights in a row. Still not as much as I would like, but certainly much better than the 2-3 that I was getting for a while.

I've been sick... some sort of flu or something... so I think the meds are knocking me out at night so I am finally getting some sleep. I'm sure once I'm better I'll be back to my normal non ability to sleep!

Be careful with sleeping pills, I took one little Ambien last week because I hadn’t slept well all week. When they say to only take it when you have eight hours to devote to sleep before becoming active again, they trust them! Somehow I managed to get up turn off my alarm, turn it back on and sleep for 2.5 more hours, and not remember any of it. What I want to know is how the heck would I know at 11pm if I’m not going to be able to sleep that night or not? By the time it becomes clear that I won’t be sleeping on a given night its too late to take the damn drugs.

It might have had something to do with the pills being expired regardless it sufficiently freaked me out that I have been setting two alarms each morning since than.

I've had a good few sleepless nights but thankfully, the last 2 or 3 have been fairly good

I normally try to have a drink that's sleep inducing and listening to the radio helps me think about something away from my own situation!

I have taken Melatonin which is natural and helps relax you to sleep. I buy the mint flavored chewtabs at Trader Joe's. One or 2 of those and about 30 mins later I'm sleepy. They work for travelling, like if you can't normally sleep on a plane but are on a long flight, etc.

I've taken Ambien before and it scares me cuz it makes me feel groggy the next day like I still want to sleep. I have insomnia real bad but have slept ok this week for some odd reason. I do wake up several times a night but my real problem is waking up in the morning. I have been late for work sooooo many times cuz I've slept thru alarms or turned them off and gone back to sleep. I now have several alarms set, and I get everything ready the night before like my shower, clothes, make my lunch etc in case I need to get our of the house REAL fast!

exactly

thanks for the advice both of you...the melatonin sounds interesting, I'll consider it.

I mean I've taken Benadryl but that takes a while to make me feel sleepy and then I feel sort of groggy the next day (esp if it's only 3 hours later)..not too bad though.

I'm so glad I'm still in school though, because now we're on summer break and it's amazing. Not that I can go to bed any earlier, but I can sleep in for the moment. Hopefully when I start my summer job I'll be working afternoon-night hours, not morning.

christ I could use some melatonin right about now. bleh. it's not that I'm doing anything in particular tomorrow, but it'd be nice to get to sleep at a decent hour so I don't waste another day tomorrow.

i mean it's almost 4 am and I can hardly close my eyes and either way I can't stop thinking, bad habit, so it's sort of pointless.

no one else in the no sleep club tonight??
