Insomnia

Recommended Posts

I had a thread called insomnia on the other board a few years ago. I still have it

Not insomnia, per se, but since the whole prostate cancer thing and the treatment I get up about every 2 hours to piss. I guess I should be thankful I at least wake up.

Aside from exercise, I have two possible solutions:

1) A podcast called "Sleep with Me." It's an intentionally boring motherfucker with a cranky voice who tells wandering bedtime stories. His shit usually puts me under after about 15-20 minutes.

2) If that doesn't work, I go for an app called "A Soft Murmur" which allows you to control sounds of waves, wind, rain, thunder, and whatnot.

Between the two, I've been able to manage some really quality sleep lately.

My insomnia went away after we had kids.  I went from laying awake for an hour every night to falling asleep 2 minutes after my head hit the pillow.

I think robin williams was the killer. pacino was the cop who couldn’t sleep because it was always daylight.  

Is this the movie where he worked in the photo booth?

Yeah, Williams was the killer. I just thought it was because he couldn’t sleep because it’s always daylight in Alaska

And Robin Williams was excellent. And Maura Tierney was a babe. So was Hilary Swank. I thought the ending was solid and not telegraphed. Then you realize that was really the only way it could end. I wouldn't call it a classic or a 10 or anything but it's a good flick. Lots of great scenery too.

No Al Pacino is the one who couldn't sleep, because he wasn't from there. 

And because he had a guilty conscience.

Had this issue big time since my grandmother passed 3 weeks ago.

I had a lot more trouble trying to sleep after mine passed last year. I’m usually in the bed and out in a couple of minutes but not then. Hate to hear that

I lay in the recliner and watch golf in the afternoon if I want to nap. 

I don’t take naps.  ever.  except in this exact scenario, sub couch for recliner.

also, you don’t lay in the recliner, you lie in it.

I have insomnia.  Usually i wake up at 3 or 4 am and just can't fall back asleep.  I haven't napped where I have fallen sound alseep during the day in decades unless I was sick.

But sometimes soothing ocean sounds do the trick.

Holy shit this blows, over 2 weeks now of waking up at 430-5 after crashing at 1130-12 and either taking an hour+ to fall back to sleep or not at all. No change in habits (gym/diet), maybe at least partly due to time change Bc I was a rock solid 12-8 sleeper before this.
