Averaging 3-4 Hours Sleep A Night

sorabji.com: Insomnia: Averaging 3-4 Hours Sleep A Night

Margret on Saturday, July 1, 2006 - 03:47 am:

    ...for almost 3 weeks now. Last night I got six hours and today I was positively drunk with well-being.
    Typically, I'll fall asleep around 1:00 a.m. and sleep until 2:00 a.m. and then wake up again and be unable to sleep until 3:30 or 4:00 a.m. or so. Then up at 6:00 a.m.

    Today: I slept in until 7:00. It felt decadent. I didn't want to cry or kill anyone once today.

    i went to bed at 6am and woke up at 9 with an indefatigable hardon. couldn't get back to sleep until 11. slept off and on until my usual wakeup time of 2:00, but was awake for about a full hour in between. kept dreaming about the end of my bed not being there. for months i had dreams about a snake that surrounded the bottom part of my bed, and how the verdict in the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui would (or would not) cause that snake to crush my legs.

    I hear that and raise one glass of wine with the benadryl!

    I've been giving my dog benadryl for his allergies. It's supposed to make him sleepy but it does not. 25mg for a 16 lb dog. Nothing.

By eri on Friday, September 22, 2006 - 11:25 am:

    Geez, that's just sad. 25 mg is all I need. And 12.5mg will knock out the kids if they are having a bad night or allergy issues.

    Tell your dog to get with the program, cuz drugs are good M'kay!

    ...to wake up on time you need one alarm clock at the head and one at the feet.My Sister has the best alarm clock in the World,a blue strobe light flashes,and you get a Police siren at full blast,but it can give you a heart attack, at the same time,v wants one of them,the alarm clock,not the heart attack.

    Nyquil keeps me awake, too.

    Nothing puts me to sleep, that I've taken.

    One day last year I had really bad allergies. I took an
    Allegra and then two diphenhydramine pills, and then
    two roommates and I went to the library (45 minutes away).
    While we were standing in line, the diphenhydramine
    kicked in very suddenly -- I started slurring my words
    and nearly dropped my books. I went and laid down in
    the car, and remained lying down during the lulling
    car ride home, but I never slept. My eyelids were too
    heavy to keep open, but my brain was racing.

    I repeated the dosage maybe a month or two after that,
    when I was deliberately trying to make myself fall asleep
    and again -- my body was exhausted but my brain wouldn't
    turn off. All the sleep and anti-anxiety medication I've taken
    has worked (or rather, not worked) the same way.

    10 mg valium + 5 mg ambien = 8-9 hours of restful sleep.

    and no hangover of any sort!

    Benedryl usually works for sleep, but on some people it has the opposite affect. It'll make em hyper.

By eri on Saturday, September 30, 2006 - 03:05 pm:

    I wish I could go back to taking NOTHING to sleep, but when I tried I got horrible migraines. It sucked.

    ...de-caff gives me an extra 2 hours sleep a night,but I still miss Columbian coffee a lot.
