Can they do that just give you a great big rest, to allow you some sleep? Seriously why can't they do that and help you out a couple times would it be unsafe?

Oh Neilep, I do feel for you - not that helps at all does it?  The adrenalin feeling I can well empathise with, it's like the less I sleep, the more 'fired up' I feel, like I am buzzing inside.  Do keep us informed of what your GP says and good luck.

I did get a few hours last night, thanks to a Zopiclone tablet.

Carolyn have you tried an osteopath for your legs, could be a problem with your lower back?  I do find osteopathy is good for a lot of things (except sleep of course!)

I am trying a course of reflexology in the New Year.  Has anyone else tried that and does it help?

At the moment I am accepting not sleeping again, but I go through phases of getting really panicky about it too, especially at 2 - 3 am, when I have to get up and drive to work the next day.

Despite the insomnia, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and hopefully some solutions to this problem of ours.

Misty,

I wish You a merry Christmas also.. My favorite time of the year! I have heard about the Reflexology but have never tried it. I really think most of my problems stem from problems that remain in my head from childhood and have had some new ones added lately that don't make it any easier.

Every little sound in the house becomes louder and I get jumpy! They scare me.

I am Glad.. It is frozen over here today Black ice everywhere this morning. Nathan had to kick the truck into 4wheel drive to get himself home from work so he stopped here until the sun comes up and warms up the pavement some... It is dangerous out and he fears his fire pager will go off and he'll have to go out on a call for some wrecks.. I hope not.. everyone should just sit tight and not drive for awhile..

I know how frustrating it can be wish you felt better!

Hi guys!
Happy New Year to all my sleepless mates out there!  Did you all have a good Festive Season???  I did, despite some lack of sleep.  I must admit since I have stopped worrying so much about whether I sleep or not, I think I am actually sleeping a lot better.  However, since being back at work, it has become a problem again - I am not happy at work, so it is hardly surprising.

Got my first reflexology session coming up in two weeks time, so will let you know how that goes.

Where is everybody?????????

Hi MIsty.. Glad you had some sleep but am sorry it has digressed again and I understand. Sometimes it does that.. A lot actually.

I just had 3 hours of very broken sleep. have not slept worth a darn for two weeks so any sleep at all is very nice.

I hope your work troubles resolve themselves and you get some sleep.

Good Luck with the reflexology sessions and I hope that they help you to find some peaceful sleep.Best wishes..

I never go immedietly to sleep. I always lay there until like 11:00. Then, bam, it's morning. Then I check my grades and I have 5 billion C's. Splenderific...

Well What time do you go to sleep? Maybe you are trying to soon. Your old enough that your awake time may be changing.
