Im having another insomnia whinge, well because im tired from lack of sleep and cranky. So we feel dam tired and cant sleep, whats that about?? I have heard it can be a whacky cortisol secretions, circadian rythm problems, cytokines like IL6, but do they really know what does this to us cause it just doesnt make sense. I have attempted to treat all that shit?? Last 2 nights i have had 3 hrs sleep, supose to go to work but im not going to be able to function. 3 nights ago i slept 9 hours but this was because the last week i have been getting 4 hrs a night and i think i basically passed out. I dont think too many people have an arsenal of sleep meds like i have and have used them in as many different combinations as well(i keep my doses low), maybe michael jackson and elvis presley but hey with 6 beers i can sing and dance better then both of them put together, lol. And the beer doesnt help me sleep either. It would be nice to nail down the dam cause of the sleep issues. Now when in a bad spell like this i have taken a small dose of seroquel(25mg) and valium(5mg) and it knocks me out and sort of resets my brain and then i can sort of sleep better again until then next time. But heres the catch, i have chronic back issues and using seroquel causing my muscles to tighten up and ache the next day. My back will spasm if i move the wrong way too. My job involves my back and my brain. I might have to bight the bullet and take the crap to make me sleep and then take the next day of and sort my back out??? If i could nap would be helpful but i lost this ability a few years ago, so i have been awake since 3am with 3 hrs sleep under my belt and will have to wait till atleast 8pm before i take my special sleep combo, if i take them to early i will be awake at 2 or 3 am again, even taken my meds at 8pm i still may wake up to early, going to sleep after 11pm for some reason gives me a better chance of sleeping through the night. I hate relying on bloody all these meds, but it has kept me going this long. When i die im sure its going to be liver failure or kidney failure. cheers!!!
