Well, for about the past 5 years I have had varying degrees of Insomnia. It has gotten very bad lately. For about the past 5 months I have only been able to sleep for about 8 out of every 35-48 hours. I don't have any kind of painful medical condition that would cause me not to sleep, I just find myself laying in bed staring at the ceiling. Then, out of frustration, I get up and go do something. Say I manage to sleep and get up at 10 AM well I am wide awake for anywhere from 35-48 hours before I am tired. I don't use drugs or alcohol, but I do drink some pop (or Soda depending on where your from ). I have tried sleeping pills, and they worked, but I woke up so tired I couldn't hardly function so they are now out of the question. I don't know what the problem is and I am going to the doctor tomorrow. So my question is, does anyone here have or had Insomnia and how did you cope with it?
