Insomnia

Post by tobycat on Tue Jun 28, 2011 11:47 am

Insomnia!!!!! I don't think I need to add anything further to this post really. Insomnia = torture!!! I am going to work on this as I am sick of feeling tired. Any suggestions fellow insomniacs? Sleep The kids, the cats, the dogs, the other half are all sound asleep. I'm trying not to feel resentful.

I'm going to snuggle up with the cat and think happy thoughts! If I don't sleep at least I will rest. G'night all. Sleep

nzmum, I can relate to having to deal with the bs from doctors and gave up the meds as well, why we have to deal with GPs I don't know.

Anyway, what kind of insomnia do you guys have? Is it just trouble getting to sleep at a normal time, or that restless sleep and waking up at random times during the night.

I seem to be the former. I can't go to sleep if I'm not tired, which usually means going to bed in the early hours of the morning, 1-4am. At the moment it's not so much of a problem as I wake fully rested and don't have a job to go to.

I feel for you all (although it's kinda nice to know I'm not alone). Doc - I'm both, unable to get to sleep and then constant waking through the night. Last night I was so tired and went to sleep straight away and then the blardy dog started barking and barking and barking! Some days (nights) ya just can't win lol.

I feel for you Martine. I am fortunate that I don't often have nightmares just a racing mind.

As for the 'blardy dog' he is usually a real sweetie. He is rather elderly and losing his eyesight and often barks until he works out what is around him. I washed his sleeping bag (he has a bed on the back porch) and checked his bedding was ok today - all good. I think it may be his last winter though Crying or Very sad And at 60kgs he's not hopping into bed with me lol. Besides the cat would have conniptions!

Hope you have a restful night Martine (and all other insomnia sufferers).

Good night.

How are you doing nzmum? I'm getting a little more sleep and each night I'm trying to go to bed a little earlier. I must be exhausted as I slept through the thunder last night which is unusual for me.

Sleep well Very Happy
