He actually tries a back-flip, but, unfortunately, turkeys are anatomically unable to back-flip.

Perhaps I could be a knight?

Yeah, he seems about right! I'm going on a week of three hours a night,

don't you get too tired to wake up anymore at some point? What the crap....

PTSD sucks.

Bun, I am gonna be honest with you here. In order to heal, sleep is vital. Vital. I went through an extended period of awful insomnia in the last year to where even Ambien didn't work. I was desperate to sleep, and the only thing that helped was Ativan. Unfortunately, it is also extremely addictive. They say "causes dependency" but I say addicted since it took me 7 months to get off of the small dose I took for probably 6 months.

What did help me is Zoloft. I didn't want to take it, but was out of options and had a professional by then whom I trusted. Took a leap of faith, and within weeks I was sleeping normally and my appetite and interest were back. I take a very small dose--but it made a ton of difference. It doesn't take away your feelings, but gives you (me) the means to have the energy to cope, if that makes any sense.

Try the OTC stuff I suggested on FB, as it was helpful to a couple people I know but if it doesn't cut it I wanted to let you know all this and did not want to do so on FB. ;)

Thanks Patee. I have gone through a couple cycles of not-sleep and it has resolved itself inside of two weeks,

so I'm pretty thankful for that. So far I've just been riding it out when it does happen, if I find myself inside an

extended insomniac sleep cycle I will definitely consider those options.

We posted at the same time! That's great that yours resolves on it's own--hopefully an OTC or similar "home remedy" will offer a bit of relaxation.

Gotta get your sleep! B)

I've tried that counting sheep thing, but they start coming faster and faster and I get all tense trying to keep up. To keep them at a reasonable speed I have to institute military-like strictness, and who can fall asleep whilst keeping sheep in strict formation?

Ahhhh--a nice new fast 'puter! Have phun wif it B) And congrats on cleaning out the garage--we kinda dumped stuff in ours when we moved in, and are now in the process of going through everything, selling the old kitchen appliances, and phiguring out what to do with the rest.

Do you have a salad spinner?? I neeeeeed a salad spinner

:P

I wasn't FOR A MOMENT thinking of anyone roasting our yeti! ... . ....Just other, ya know... . ..wild yetis. . . . .. :huh: . . . .. . . ..... :rolleyes:

We have been LOOKING for the wild yetis at the country house!! Out on the quads. Max is DETERMINED he will find one! There's a way to look at broken tree limbs and determine the difference between Yetis and elk...

Sigh... psillies all have lives... lonely Friday night *sniff....

;)

Mine was a boring Friday night. But it was most welcome since the 24 hours leading up to it weren't so boring :rolleyes:

Ok. This is serious! I sat on the couch for a minute to check my FB and the accidental Kitty sat on my lap. That was 20 minutes ago? My wine glass is about 8 feet away on the counter! help! M is upstairs doing homework and hub is in the basement tying flys!

Text... Send email... I know I'm a few days late but this is what I do to Madeleine :P

...Actually, I kinda want bacon now...

:lol: :lol:

They say it's the vegetarian's gateway drug back into meat. My fav bar in town has bacon night on Wednesdays. At 9:30 you will find a bowl on every table and for every 2 people seated at the bar. Then this very large, jolly man comes at you with a giant stainless steel bowl FILLED with bacon! He fills your bowl, tells you what kind of 'flavor' he's made and then every 15-20 min comes back with ANOTHER bowl of a different flavor! Captain's fav was the 'peanut butter cup'... :unsure:

If it makes you feel any better, I haven't been sleeping either.

The cake and bacon help with that.... :ph34r::D

    • I forgot to add that I have also had an intermittent dry mouth and coated tongue.
    • I have been having a number of very strange symptoms for the past 7 weeks. It started with upper abdominal pains and discomfort that radiate to the back and sides. I then developed a light-headedness and frequent headaches. I have been having problems concentrating along with brain fog. However sometimes the head symptoms ease but then come back a few days later. My stools have not been right either. Some days they float and appear to have undigested food in them and are generally light in colour. I have also been very tired lately and my legs have been aching and have had some sharp pains in feet and hands. What is perhaps concerning me most is that I seem to be losing subcutaneous fat - my arms are very thin and bony and I am developing depressions on the sides of my thighs. I have had loads of blood tests; liver, kidney function and glucose were all normal. I have also had an MRI and my pancreatic functions and gall bladder were also normal. I have just had some more tests back for thyroid which once again was normal. I am getting increasingly concerned and am desperate for a diagnosis. I only thought of celiacs as my grandmother had it and when I looked up symptoms there were some matches. Does this sound like celiacs? This is literally the only thing that hasn't been ruled out. I am 18 years old and male. Thanks. 
    • For the poster with anxiety - Lexapro paired with a small dose of Buspar has been the only combo that has worked for me recently. I have had biopsy diagnosed celiac for about 12 years and no amount of gluten free food or supplements have helped.
