    Exclamation Anyone Else With Insomnia?

    I've been awake since 2:30 AM yesterday and I do not feel tired at all. I once could not sleep for more than 72 hours, I tried several times but I just could not- I was wide awake. I do not use any kind of drugs or even take vitamins.

    ...Do you spend alot of time working on the computer? I have found this will keep me up for a couple of days. (Either the rays from screen or the brain is in a state of excitement, that gives the impression you are wide awake. ..when I have finally gone to bed (still feeling fully alive)...I have noticed that I in fact am Extremely tired & fall alseep straight away. )

    Stress & worries can cause insomia. Also certain foods, coffee etc. There has also been a scientific experiments on people who suffer extreme insomia, where they made the patient stay in a room for a couple of days. When the patient actually laid down & should signs of falling alseep, they were disturbed/woken immediatly. Depriving the person of sleep continuously seemed to work. It seems to be a psychological problem, where the brain has formed a kind of habit of associating the desire to sleep, which turns around and has the opposite effect. (worrying about that you HAVE to go to sleep, will keep you awake).

    Of course...when all fails....sip on a couple of Beers. Works for me

    At least if you had been using amphetamines, you would have derived some enjoyment from it all

    Drink several cups of camomile tea throughout the day, in the evening you will feel a peaceful slumber creeping in you and if you timely seek the bedsheets, I am sure you will find your sleep again and wake up refreshed and with a smile.

    Try physical exercise ... of any kind.

    Seriously, Skadi's advice is good: try to stay awake. It works for me, but on the other hand has me operating on a ~24.5h clock, staying awake a little longer each night, sleeping a little longer each morning. At least you are happy not to feel tired, I myself do not function without lots of sleep.

    I suffer from insomnia bigtime. My sister also suffers (worse?) and has also stayed up for several days at a time but then she does 'other' things that lead to this (like milesan suggested)... my dad is also a poor sleeper... and my paternal grandfather too... genetic insomnia?? Unlike you though I often feel tired

    Actually...I should have mention this as well, Physical exercise. After a day-long session in the garden (digging, landscaping, planting etc)...I come inside at dusk, have a nice long shower or bath, a good meal, a couple of drinks & jump into bed with a good book. After any vigorous exercise your body will feel great, just stretching out under the sheets...ah bliss! (Better still if your cat/s jump up & snuggles up to you). I think cats are the best relaxing therapy there is. (better than a male...ha ha )

    Post Re: insomnia

    I usually just wait until I fall down from utter exhaustion.

    Sleep is one of the horrendous foundations of routine and therefore is a necessary evil.
    I envision a world where people dawning long white robes and elaborate headdresses run rampant down the streets, waving their arms in the air while screaming "we've gone mad, we've gone mad", like defrocked monks breaking the silence of ages past.

    Neither can I...it's been almost 2 days now for me since I've had any sleep... It's weird because I go to the gym every day for atleast 2 hours, I am constantly active during the day, I go to school, I go to work, and I still cannot ever fall asleep....I don't do drugs, drink coffee or take anything of a "stimulating" nature...In fact, I took 3 tylenol pm's about an hour and a half ago, with no sleepy effect whatsoever. What gives?

    It does feel terrible, lg, and I sympathize with you. Have you thought about seeing a doctor?
    "Nature! We are surrounded and embraced by her:
    powerless to separate ourselves from her, and powerless to penetrate beyond her.

    Without asking, or warning, she snatches us up into her circling dance, and whirls us on until we are tired, and drop from her arms." - Goethe
