    anyone else get insomnia?

    How do you deal with it? Every so often I get my sleep schedule all turned on its head somehow and I'll find myself laying in bed for hours not being able to sleep.

    I'm not interested in medications or sleeping pills, because I do still need to be able to wake up an go to work.

    Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions

    I collect military relics, mainly German and American, but interested in others as well, pre 1945 .. Always interested in adding to my collection

    anyone else get insomnia?

    I’m a true person that suffers for insomnia. It was hard when I worked at the office. It used to freak me out that everyone else is waking up from a good night sleep and I’ve been up 38 hours eyes hurting from being open so long. I had to make changes and I work at my hours and usually detect at 6am at the end on my day. I does truly suck because my schedule is different then everyone’s else. Happy I only have a handful friends. My sleeping pills helps at times, but never seem to be trust worthy. I always joke a say I need that Michael Jackson stuff lol

    Lots of times my Queen and I are under totally opposite schedules in the same house and my wife don’t work. So I waiting 2 hours to go hit a permission for 3 hours then come home and pass out. Waiting now for 6am ugggh tuff life....It’s cray isn’t it? Lol

    Maybe it was our crazy New Orleans lifestyles hmmm

    Are you drinking caffeine products or energy shots of any kind? I agree about the medications and such...we're already over medicated in this world these days. Getting more exercise during the day helps...brisk walking or bicycling or whatever. Anything that will encourage your brain to release more endorphine or dopamine...which ever or either induces sleep naturally. I think Lemon Balm and especially Catnip teas are pretty good...natural sedatives. The herb 'valerian root' is good too. Otherwise, you need to be strict about your sleep-wake cycles. Determine if your issue is due to emotional or depressive issues or reduced productivity...it could be dietary or emotional or simply that you have too much on your plate and shut down on discipline.

    Shoulder pain keeps me up every 1-2 hours. It’s exhausting. Sometimes I don’t go to bed until dawn.

    When y'all figure it out, let me know. My eyes will pop open at 3 AM, and that's it.

    Since I retired, my schedule is a little odd. Not truly insomnia though. If I have a coffee, just one, after 2 pm I'll be up most of the night. So I don't do that. One Tylenol usually lets me get to sleep as the biggest reason I don't is arthritis in my knee. Woke up at 6 am today due to it.

    as I live alone, I do what I want, when I want, etc.
    if I am not inclined to sleep I get up and do something, sooner or later I will wish to sleep and then I do so

    don't get upset, just get up - read, computer (to read), -> NO TV

    ARC is quite correct, a couple of puffs in a calm environment and addios

    Reading also ... for me at about time to sleep ... instant drowsiness. Don't forget about running fans, total darkness, lilting radio music, boring tv shows etc...

    I am not sure if I have it, but I barely sleep anymore, so maybe. I just push through, and ignore it. I'm young, so I guess I have energy reserved for the day, but as I get older, prolly' not.

    Melatonin, as Alaskaseeker mentioned. I get to sleep quicker, but actually wake up sooner with it than without it, with no lingering drowsiness.

    Insomnia is dangerous stuff to play with. I've had it for years. My blood pressure has always been high, and you don't realize how much true sleep is lost until you have a sleep study. Before my sleep study and C-Pap, I thought I was fine and never really thought much about it. But since my C-Pap, I can honestly say and see the difference. 25 years of shift work, I thought my moments of being bogged down during a day was due to it. But it was more so from bad sleep. My energy and alertness has greatly increased. I strongly recommend any and all to have a study done. Blood flow, airway, heart beat, vision, all is loss through bad sleep.

    Exactly and I keep running into sativa. Can’t wait until can just walk in a get the right med for me. I did eat a whole caramel and cleaned the whole house like a lunatic. Lol My Queen asked if I could get me that one once a month. Man those edibles last a long time.

    It was so delicious
