This will be me in three more days...

Several people already today have told me I don't look so good.

I didn't get much sleep last night either.

At which point does it cross over from "not sleeping much" to actual insomnia?

I am being kept ambulatory by Diet Coke.

I have a doctor's appointment on Wednesday. Nothing I'm taking now seems to be working.

And I think I've run out of funny...

It's not that bad a look, but I think I like the pics over on Ginnie's blog better.

I feel for you, Fab. I'm not sure where the line is, but experience tells me if you think you've crossed it, then you probably have.

If your doc has a miracle cure, let me know what it is.

Can you get your mitts on some lavender oil? Sprinkle a couple drops on a hanky or kleenex and keep near your head when you're trying to sleep.

If it's something you can't get, email me.

You have my sympathy, especially as your insomnia sounds ongoing. I don't need that much sleep myself...but if I don't get a decent 5 hours sleep a night it kills me.

I do like that head though :)

Trinette--You'll be the first I tell!

Serra--I will have to check with Mrs. Fab. I think she has something similar. I'll get back to you on that.

Dreamwalker--I think he needs to mosturize a bit more!

Diet Coke is full of cafeine... No wonder you don't sleep!!! As a pharmacist, I could give you lots of good pills names but I prefer the natural way. You have to take a day or two of vacation and do nothing... I mean NOTHING! No Internet, no dusting, no collecting autographs! NOTHING I SAID! Stay in bed all day (no no no... I know what you are thinking...not even THAT!) And do nothing. Sleep and eat.... That's the answer... Rest my friend... And I insist! DO NOTHING!...

MP--I don't usually drink soda, but it's the only that will keep me functioning during the day LOL. I can do nothing after Friday, because I'm on vacation next week, but until then I have to work :(

bless your heart!

I hate insomnia~it just makes you feel so helpless....sleeping should be easy, right?

Have you tried Nyquil? Just the cheap, wal-mart brand. Works for me!

Pissy--There are nights I drink it like it was a glass of milk.

No luck usually.

Hmmmm. I'm guessing they're your fave foods in order. ??????


And you're not thinking this lack of sleep is a new thing - do ya? Judging by the time stamp on some of your posts - this has been going on for quite some time! ;)

Oh man, do I feel for you. I've been struggling with insomnia for a very long time. I still do some, but ambien has been somewhat of a godsend. It *gets* me to sleep almost without fail, however doesn't always *keep* me asleep (sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night). However it's the first sleeping pill I've ever tried that hasn't caused me grogginess in the morning.

I also had a lavendar sleep mask for awhile, and now a little lavendar pillow I use. They seem to help too.

Good luck!

Rebecca--Good guess, but wrong :)

Why have you been looking at my posting times? I feel violated! LOL

Shoo Shoo--I'll ask about ambien. A couple people have mentioned it. Thanks!

I use to date that guy, he has an enormous pole! But seriously bad breath.

I had to finally break down and ask my doctor for some meds for my insomnia. Ambien is some good stuff. It will put you to sleep but you won't feel groggy in the morning.

Mr. M--But at least he had the enormous pole!

Fpx--I think that's gonna be the magic word today!
