I went to bed at midnight, haven't slept at all... been thinking of my ex-GF, and how she acted all capable and stuff when I was in crisis, but inside she was crying, she phoned her Mom and cried down the phone to her... the first time in 20 years, almost... all because I was in trouble.

I've slept two hours each the last two days. Slept one hour the day before. I have to try to at least go lie down.
I have nightmares almost every time I sleep so I resist it even though I have meds.
I think it's time to give in for a bit.
In Peace and Healing,

OK, my deal is my work schedule. I wish it matched my husband's who has a m-f, day job. I am happy for him, but my schedule changed every week. One day I may work a day shift and the next I work at night. I hate it and it causes me so much grief. For example, I just got home from work about 1 hr ago.

I don't function well without structure. I don't think I have been sleeping normal since highschool and that was 18 yrs ago. A set schedule would be heaven..nice banking hours or something. My schedule now could be defined as chaos, but I have to work and that is that.

As far as caffine goes...well, I love coffee!!! I must have 2 cups to start my day and 2 in the afternoon (unless I substitute this with a tall glass of iced tea) or I am hell to live with. I know...I am making excuses.

Plus, my husband would agree that I am addicted to the internet. I admit I do enjoy this, but it has gotten worse since I found Pandys....but I have felt better mentally than I have in such a long time.

Sleep is nice though and I wish I slept at a more normal time and length of time. It doesn't matter if it is cold or hot in my room, I must be wrapped up in a blanket or a sheet like a cacoon in order to be comfortable. It makes me feel safe and secure. Is anyone else like that?

Sweet dreams to you all and don't let the bed bugs bite.

I hope every one can sleep. I went on a long time. the doctor said it is depression. Your brain does not have enough dopamine, and seratonin. I thought it would go away, but it did not. I take zoloft now and it finally works. I feel so much better, I can sleep 8 hours with the help of ambien. that also take a while to work. You can die without sleep. these jerks (rapists) know what they are doing, thats why they do it in the first place. they are miserable and want everyone else to be also!!!!!

I wish you all sweet dreams and peaceful sleep tonight. I too have s little trouble sleeping at times. I drink way too much coffee, but I just love it. Let's face it, it isn't only the caffine is it? Sometimes my thoughts just overwhelm me.
