Windows 7: Today [14.2¾]

07 Jan 2014   #501


It's 4:25 AM at the moment. My insomnia has been really bad lately. I simply can't sleep.

For over two months now it has been the same almost every night. We go to bed together, talk a bit, read, socialize in an adult way, then lights off. In 10 minutes or so I can hear Angie has fallen asleep. I try, I really try, feeling sleepy and tired but can't sleep. After an hour or hour and a half later I give up, get to study, pour myself a small whisky and watch TV, read and surf until between 5 or 6 AM, go back to bed, finally fall asleep for an hour or so until the alarm wakes me up at 8.

Late afternoon when home I nap for an hour, max 75 minutes. If on the road, no napping. An average day I sleep about three hours, half of that at night, half late afternoon or early evening. Every 8 to 12 days my body is so totally exhausted it gives up and I sleep one night better, 8 to 10 hours. Then the cycle starts again.

I've suffered of insomnia a few years. I was so happy when it "went away" last summer and I slept almost like a normal person for a few months, 5, 6 even 7 hours every night. Then it was back, late October. Yes, I have tried about every possible medicine, real ones and "it works if you believe in it" stuff (homeopathic pseudo medicine). Hypnotherapy, everything.

I just hope I could sleep normally.

That's too bad Kari. A good sleep is one of life's little luxuries. I feel for you my friend. A Guy

I feel for you too,
I get that way every once in a while,
Could be a dumb dog barking or too quite,
It really get irritating,
Hot showers usually do the job but not with a dog barking all night/ hpd=Houston Police Department fixes that eventually,

Sorry to hear that Kari, I work permanent nights (some days I may only get 3 hours sleep out of 24 but I seem to catch up and may sleep 6 to 7 hours the next or day after that) I do sympathize Kari and hope you get back to normal sleep soon :)

That sound rough Kari. I'm fortunate that I don't suffer but I have friends who do.

Thanks geeks.

The insomnia explains that "an angry man" bit under my avatar; I am constantly grumpy and in a bad mood, can smile only to my Angie and and at my local pub whenever I see a mate escorted back home by the wife holding him from his ear.

I can't really sleep at night either, but fortunately it isn't as bad as yours, I simply can't sleep until it's past a certain time and that's usually at about 2 onwards.

Today this blogpost made an angry old man laugh: It's enough to make you cancel your reservation | Blogdramedy. Actual complaints a travel agent has received from its clients.

These two are IMO the best:
7. “They should not allow topless sunbathing on the beach. It was very distracting for my husband who just wanted to relax.”
12. “It took us nine hours to fly home from Jamaica to England. It took the Americans only three hours to get home. This seems unfair.”
