I have had horrible insomnia since Saturday, I cant drop off until 5/6.30am then sleep part of the day and it is becoming unbearable....as everything is worse with sleep deprivation.

I hope you take it day at a time or moment by moment and get through till Wednesday as you need to get the insomnia sorted.

I was supposed to see my doctor today but due to being awake all night i slept and did nt make it......got to laugh or i would cry or get destructive.
Hang on in there bud...your not alone.

Not sure what wubu means sam!

I listen to whatever I fancy. It can be Chopin, Nirvana, dance music, bagpipes, Irish music... all depends on what seems best at the time, you know?

Ditto john. Sleep dep, is horrendous. I can't recommend any legal ways to forcefully induce it, as I don't know any.

I thought I'd come back to this thread, because I'm concerned about suggesting loud music. I do this, but I wouldn't advise doing this too much sam.

I think I may have over done it again, and I've been having buzzing in my left ear for the last two days. It's tinnitus I think, and I've had this before [though last time it was incredibly high pitched] and forgotten how bad it can be. It really affects your balance as well as bloody annoying, and there's no getting away from it!

:scared:
