West river rogue, hang in there and keep busy during day but get your sleep when you can.
Keep fighting the good fight, man.

Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

I take Ambien. Donít recommend it but it has helped me since 2002. Started at 5mg. A few month later I was upped to 10. Went back to 5 for a few years now. Need to cut that in half then try cold turkey.

Lack of sleep can be a major cause of depression.

Start with two 5mg tablets. Take them about an hour before you go to bed.


If gun control really works, why isn't Chicago the safest place in America??

Sorry, I clicked on the wrong post. I meant Melatonin. Start with two 5mg tablets. Take them about one hour before you go to bed. Reading also helped me too prior to bedtime.

I hear opium will make you nod off.
Seriously just sleep when you get tired,quit trying to sleep by the clock.

I get that way from time to time. I take a real hot shower to get my muscles to relax (especially my lower back muscles).
I also drink one beer. The key is ONE beer. A beer likes company. Don't give it any, it will become bored, and put you to sleep.

I can totally relate. I have spent my whole life going on 5 hours of sleep or less. I've been up since 2:30 today . Even as a kid, I never slept well and now I'm 61. Have tried everything known to man, believe me nothing has worked. Actually the older I get, the worse it's became. And this is working 12 to 14 hours a day, manual labor outside I've given up and just have learned to live with it.
