 Yep, they tried that for awhile years ago.. no lucky poo. other things tried made me feel like crud, and some I couldn't combine with my meds..at the time.. I am taking different meds these days so I don't know.. I hate tylonol let alone other medications.. I have a hard time taking them...

hi Karen...sorry to hear abt your sleeping again...i've had a bad week last week  but this week has been ok so far, fingers crossed!..i think i have found a solution to my sleeping which has worked the last 6-10 times ive tried it...we have this thing call shisha dont know if they have it i the US, its a middle eastern, asian thing where you smoke tobaccao through a water pipe...its done alot in middle eastern countries where its a social thing where mates just go out and have a relaxing evening by doin it....its not illegal by any means...as it seems a bit like it is....but every time ive been ive slept well that night...it makes u sorta light headed so u just want to put ur head down...maybe worth giving it a go....im hoping to get myself one to use at home....
this website might be useful if u want to know what im talking abt

 I am glad you have rested and wish I could do the same, but I don't like that sort of thing..

Wednesday the First A miracle happened I slept 5 hrs...Thursday a bigger one, happened, I slept from 10:00 pm until 7:00 AM. 9 hours... I cannot tell you how long it has been. And something odd to note .. LOL I forgot to pay my electric bill so neither night were the constant hums of power..The power came back up in the evening..right before I got home from work! The disappointment being I haven't slept since..

That would be nice.. Have you been getting any sleep at all? Something else.. There is nobody here but me.. I wonder if that effects it?

Hi Karen Mam,

LOL....there's no point in asking me if I have been getting any sleep at all !!...

This is my sleeping pattern (generalization)...3 x 1 hours , in other words I do not sleep longer than an hour before waking up , sometimes 15 minutes !...but I average about three hours....then every other night about 1 hour.......about 5 times a month I go without sleep completely....then 3 times a month this expands to about 72 hours give or take.....

day in day out since I was 6........that is it....it's the way it has been...the way it is...and there's no reason to think that it will ever change.....LOL

NO kidding. I remember a post was bacck in one of the old threads, I fell asleep in the middle of a post and when I woke there were tons of one letter all the way down the post.. I believe I left it there to point out the evils of falling asleep while tying LOL.. I need a pillow. 

Zwitterion, Sorry about the all nighter.. Do you have something to do..?
