Insomnia sucks. Login/Join

I've been up over fifty hours. I take AdvilPM, if I can fall asleep
it helps. But I can't fall asleep. Even bourbon doesn't help.
Melatonin has no effect on me. I try to exercise but my feet hurt
so bad. Since I can't go to sleep I'm on Sigforum Big Grin

Get a chainsaw and go out and cut a couple of cords of wood. You'll sleep.

I guess that bottle of bourbon worked after all. Big Grin

It comes and goes.

Get thee to a doctor perhaps specialist, lots of reasons for poor sleep from Apnea to Stress.

In my case apnea, mild though it may be, it's problematic, add in some stress and poof, up all night.

Have an APAP machine, get a sleep test, if at best rule it out, and move on, alcohol isn't the best solution

Someone just turned me on to CBN (cannabinol), a hemp derivative similar to CBD. Tried it 4 nights in a row, got 4 nights of good sleep. So I ordered some. Insomnia is now back as I wait for my shipment to come in.

I like cbd. I’ll try cbn, maybe I’ll have 2 choices. Anxiety kept me from sleeping right. I sleep great now.

With me I think it's stress. Wife of thirty years divorced me last year.
Gave her a pretty sizable check. Lost my job at Christmas. Worried about
retirement. Lost both my parents last year. I suppose in a few months I'll
find another job.

All my adult life I have suffered with Insomnia. For years I took Xanax and it worked at first then nothing. I'm a light drinker and have tried a shot of bourbon and that didn't work.

Last year our state legalized marijuana. I am now 69 years old and hadn't smoked it since I was a kid. Now every night around 10:00 I smoke a little and 20 minutes later am usually asleep. Every once in a while I have a restless night, but no where near what it used to be like. Since starting smoking, I have only smoked at bedtime, never during the day or evening. I get up at 5:00 and am pretty rested.

I haven't smoked a joint in over 35 years. I would like to try the weed,
but with all the money I've lost, I'm almost 62, I'll probably have to get another job
for several years. Life could be worse. I read about the percentage of people near
retirement age that have zero savings. I should feel fortunate. Worked hard all my life.

Same here.

It takes a while for me to get sleep.

When I do, it doesn't take long for some crazy dream to wake me up anyway.

I hardly ever remember dreams. When I quit smoking 22 years ago,
I put a nicotine patch on my arm. I had the most vivid dreams you
can imagine. Like going from black and white TV to high def.
I took the patch off and quit cold turkey.

I have insomnia
It sucks
Mine is due stress, anxiety, and the fact that I can not shut my mind off.

It has gotten bad the last couple of years:
Out of work, out of money, out of patience, etc...

I have not slept right since I worked for the Medical Examiners office where I worked 9pm to 7am.

Mrs. Flash and I both used the patch to quit smoking and we both had dreams like you mention.

I kind of enjoyed them.

With the small amount that I smoke I figure it cost me about $13 a week. It is stronger than when I was a youth, reminds me of the Hawiian bud that was around back then.

if you don't want to inhale you can get CDB gummies, some with THC, some without.

I tried gummies but It took to long to take effect. Over an hour. I like to smoke a little, put the cpap on and lights out. If I wait for a while I find I get the muchies and eat anything in the refrigerator that looks good. Then it is a restless sleep.

CBN also comes in gummy form, and may work better than CBD for insomnia (or combined with CBD, and THC also if that's your flavor).

That sounds about right. For me it took 45 minutes to about an hour to work, but work it did. Better than waiting 5 hours for sleep. Just pop one an hour before your target sleep time.

About 10 years back I stopped sleeping. Took about a week before I started getting about 1-2 hours worth of micro-naps per day, apparently just enough that I didn't die. Lots of dr visits, various meds that didn't help, etc.

I did get a lot of value out of this video, especially since the doc has chronic insomnia herself. This is all about training your brain how to make it easier to sleep.
