Yeah, I hope there is some hope out there for us....I have a question for the rest of you insominacs...tell me if this has ever happened to you....I was lying down on my bed...I was tired of reading, tired of creating, tired of computer (ebay bidding)and just looking up at the ceiling...I discover I was asleep...(not sure for how long)but was stunned (feeling stunned)and still looking up at the ceiling...it was a weird feeling...

You know the week I got real sick and all that trouble was happening.., That happened to me at the computer but I was sitting up, but like just froze and then I don't remember what happened but I fell down into the keyboard.. I am not sure when I had started my post, but it must have been half hour because when I woke I remember I had been writing down times of you know whos posts, then when I looked back at the last one, then the newest it had been about 30 min. Very weird sensation.. At that point was about 3 and 1/2 days I think.. It got so boggled I lost all track of time, I did not know what I was doing anymore and couldn,t think.. was crying constantly and felt like crude.. I think your body just takes control and knocks your butt out!

This is interesting LO (Hi Lo*giggles*)....I think I have had this happen....ususally when I've gone a couple of nights...it is weird....in my case it pisses me off because I realise I've been asleep but only for a few minutes !!...the frustrating thing is why do I not stay asleep ? It's more like passing out and then regaining consciousness !!..well..that's how it feels for me anyway...

Hmmm, you maybe right as I have had little sleep when that did occur.  I swear I had been asleep a long time...but it wasn't long at all...

Karen, same thing here...could not go to sleep for the rest of the night

Good Job. Have been worried.. I could use some of your horse pills as I can't sleep either.. Was up most of night before and been up all night tonight and this morning. I hope you feeling some better after some much needed sleep! I have a ton of printing to do for the preschool and I am tired. Tried to sleep several times no luck! so I have been printing and posting, Like counting sheep! Reading things I don't understand and witing things that only make sense to me! I have lost my mind somewhere!LOL Probably been abducted by an alien from the other thread!LOL
