  • OT: Sleep Deprivation

    How do you get back on track? I'm running only on a couple hours of sleep the past few days. Work has been hard lately too, half the day I work outside doing manual labor. I need to get some sleep. Do you guys take naps or how do you get back on track?

    Dont take naps. They'll **************** your sleep pattern to bits. Tire yourself out and when you feel you're starting to flag drop what you're doing at get in bed even if its a bit early. Staying up an extra hour might push you back out of tiredness again as the body gets weird when it hasnt slept and prepairs for a long haul after a while.

        This week has been effed up for me too.

        I was in MO last week for business, getting up at 6:30, in bed by 10, 10:15 and was OUT cold.

        Got home last Friday, had a show that night, was out til way late, then couldn't fall asleep, and have been getting to actual sleep probably by 1-2 or so since then. Ugh.

          In the army now and sleep is a luxury. I try to make do by taking a nap anytime I can and during vacation time I sleep during the night as long as I can.

            Naps are fine, but I rarely have time.

            my tip: eat a nice meal, drink some wine, jack off, go to bed early.

            You should be fine/

                    My sleep schedule has been all fooked up since I started school again twp weeks ago. After 4 months of basically being nocturnal its hard to get used to going to bed at a reasonable hour.

                    That and when I do sleep, I wake up half a dozen times per night usually.

                            Melatonin. They sell them in bottles of like 50, you probably only need one. Get the fast acting stuff if you can, that's code for stick it under your tongue and it dissolves in 10 seconds and tastes like mint. That goes to work in about 20 minutes.

                            If you get the regular stuff, it can hit you between 45-90 minutes, and when it lasts for 7-8 hours that's too much of a buffer zone for me imo.

                            Oh and that's over the counter, if you keep having trouble then go see a doctor and ask for a prescription for Zopiclone, that **************** will knock you out right good. Side effects suck but worth it for the sleep (everything tastes like metal for the first half hour after you wake up. It's easily cured though just chug water and it's gone and done in 5 minutes)

                            As always, for any and all sleep medication you can develop an immunity to that drug, so any extended and frequent use of ANY sleeping aid will eventually end up with that drug having no effect.

                            DO NOT mix medications, unless specified that you can.

                            Watch what you're eating as well. Don't drink caffienated beverages or sugar laden foods/drinks after a certain time. (I usually say 020pm)

                            There can be alot to it, it just depends on how bad it's affecting you. Sounds like you've got some minor insomnia though. You should be fine, and if not you can always PM me and I'll lay some **************** out for you. I am a diagnosed insomniac, or was actually. One of those bad ones too...3 hours night MAX. Yuck.

                              Melatonin gave me the most vivid, horrific, terrible hallucinations/sleepterrors/nightmares of my entire life.

                              I will never touch melatonin again for the rest of my life. horrible horrible horrible stuff.

                              NEVER again. ever.

                              imagine being murdered over and over again for all you've done wrong in your life. Imagine it being surreal, but very vivid. Imagine a true hell on earth.


                              That's Melatonin for me.

                              You might love it.
