    Insomnia Sucks

    So last night I had my first firsthand experience with insomnia. Slept maybe 40 minutes last night, total. That crap is for the birds.

    On the plus side I was able to unpack the rest of my kitchen, living room and pantry of my new place.

    What do you do when you can't sleep?

    Whine to other Jazzfanz posters that also can't sleep about how I can't sleep. Actually, the only night I haven't been able to sleep in recent memory was the night after a big meal this past Thanksgiving. And whine away I did.

    Anybody that does have insomnia though, I don't envy you. I might even take a drug addiction or something over that if I had to pick a problem to have. I'm a complete mess when I don't get enough sleep.

    Well it has only been one night and today will be another long day. I am hoping I pass out tonight.

    I very rarely have insomnia. When I do I usually strategize about my fantasy basketball teams or watch TV. Kudos to you Stoked for being so productive.

    In related news:

    Emelie is one of around 800 children in Sweden and elsewhere in Europe who developed narcolepsy, an incurable sleep disorder, after being immunized with the Pandemrix H1N1 swine flu vaccine made by British drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline in 2009.
    That sucks.

    I read that earlier. I'd heard of narcolepsy, but I didn't realize it was incurable.

    I basically skip a night of sleep every other week or so due to insomnia. I used to get really stressed about it and it that made it much worse. I have found I just do something I enjoy with the time and catch up the sleep later. When I stress that I am not getting enough sleep or I have to get up early and I am going to be tired it makes it much worse than I start to have a string of insomnia nights. I suppose I could be productive but I have started to just enjoy this time where the world is quiet and I can do whatever. Reading helps me go to bed sooner but I usually play video games, watch tv or surf the web.

    I could fall asleep at 7 every night, my wife on the other hand cannot fall asleep until 4 or 5 every morning ... she tries to guilt me into staying up with her but I cannot physically do it anymore. I pass out around 2 and let her do whatever she does in the wee hours of the morning

    I haven't seen it. It's a good book though.
