Has anyone ever had this? I've had it for the last 3 nights and I'm hating it. It started Wednesday night when i got back home at 12:30am. Exhausted, i took a shower and hit the sack. I woke up fully rested at 2:30am. Looking at my phone's clock, I thought to myself "wtf.. why am i up only 1.5hrs after going to sleep?".. and I went back to sleep again. Each time it took me 30 minutes to fall asleep, and I kept waking up 15 minutes later. This went on until 6:00 am, so i got up and decided to give it up. 19hrs later, i tried to go to sleep at 1:00am on Thursday night. (friday morning).. Considering i haven't slept more than 2hrs in the last 48, I thought i'd be out the minute my head hit the pillow for atleast 8hrs. Turns out Thursday night was worse for me than Wednesday. Atleast i got to fall asleep several times the night before, but on Thursday I just couldn't fall sleep. Although I was exhausted as hell, the sleep button in my system just wasen't being pushed. My eyelids were aching because i was shutting them so tight. Trust me.. it sucks to be exhausted, but being unable to fall asleep. I did finally fall asleep at 7am, but jumped out of bed 45minutes later fully rested. **** it... i decided to get up and just go to work. Now.. last night (friday night/saturday morning) was the worst by far. I have an early Saturday meeting at 8:30am, so I wanted to get this whole sleeping disorder thing out of my system so that I could give the 2hour presentation without falling alseep at the podium. So.. I planned the perfect Friday night.. I called up my girlfriend and took her out to one of the finest sea food restaurants in town. Later we went home and drank just enough wine to get a light headed buzz. We did what a happy horny couple would do, and being the great considerate gal she is.. she didnt mind going home after we finished since I had to be up at 7:00am, and hadn't slept at all the two nights before. Guess what.. again, i couldn't fall asleep! I was exhausted, and my whole body shut down, but my mind was still fully awake. I tried counting sheep, remembering ex-girlfriends names', imagined myself diving in peace in the red sea coralls with magnificant gold/pink/blue fish.. and everyother peaceful thought my exhausted mind could think off.. but still, the sleep button wasen't working. So i got up and started the 'battle at Kruger' thread, watched a couple of episodes of Lost, and then tried to sleep again. Again, 1hr of tossing and turning later, I was still wide awake. I didn't even manage to doze off at all.. even for a few minutes. I did manage to get through my presentation without dozing off though, and here i am writting this thread.. but i've decided I'm going to get some sleeping pills, but first try to naturally fall asleep tonite before gorging down on the pills. Has anyone faced anything similar? I wikipedia'd 'insomnia', and found out that this is normal, and supposdly 64 million Americans suffer from insomnia on a regular basis each year. I can't imagine that though. Thoughts? doctors? mothers? anyone..?
