i know what you mean...i found out a week ago that i've got to start looking for a new job. lilly went and eliminated several chemist positions, so i wasn't alone. not many other places in central indiana looking for chemist though. i just started to like the little farm we bought. we're also in the middle of building a home. at least we're young and mobile (no kids in school).

I used to have a problem sleeping but I have control of it now. I just don't try to go to sleep until I am real tried. Yes I know it sounds stupid and obvious and that I would never get to sleep when I am supposed to. And yes I do have a few nights with to little sleep but I found that my schedule rites its self with in a few days. If I did not get enough sleep the night before I am more tired the next night so I can then get to sleep when I am supposed to. It works very well when you have fixed time you have to get up in the morning to go to work.

A few bottles of wild turkey should have you out for a few.

Uh... how do you feel on 10mg of Ambien? People on the streets pay good money to get that fucked up.
Link Posted: 12/21/2002 12:47:11 PM EDT
I can never get to sleep before 1 or 2 in the morning no matter how early I get up. For me being tired and getting to sleep have no correlation. It drives me nuts.

Ambian does nothing for me, I cant even feel it. It's like taking baby asprin. When I first started taking it it put me out. But now it does nothing for me.

"insomnia anyone?" No thanks, already have some most nights. I've spent a few 24, 36 even to 48 hr. shifts artificially motivated to stay awake. I think every once in a while a small cell kicks out a remnant from those days and it's [shock] woohoo!!! I can't sleep!!! Or even sit still. The guys at work threaten to duck tape me to the wall once in a while. edited to add "hr" and capitalize "I"

Insomnia I only smoke weed when I need to, And I need to get some rest, I confess, I burnt a hole in the mattress, Yes, yes, it was me, I plead guilty, And on the count of three I pull back the duvet, Make my way to the refrigerator, One dry potato inside, no lie Not even bread, jam, When the light above my head went bam! I can't sleep, something's all over me, Greasy, insomnia please release me, And let me dream about making mad love on the heath, Tearing off tights with my teeth. But there's no relief, I'm wide awake in my kitchen, It's dark and I'm lonely, Oh, if I could only get some sleep, Creaky noises make my skin creep, I need to get some sleep, I can't get no sleep....

Deep in the bosom of the gentle night Is when I saw thoughts alight They caught my pen and start to write I struggle and fight Dark forces in the clear moonlight Without fear Insomnia I can't get no sleep I used to worry Thought I was going mad In a hurry get in stress Making excess mess in darkness No electricity something's all over me Greasy insomnia please release me And let me dream of making mad love to my girl on the heath Tearing off tights with my teeth But there's no relief no peace I toss and turn without cease Like a curse open my eyes And rise like yeast At least a couple of weeks since I last slept Kept taking sleep pills But now I keep myself pegged Deeper still That night I write by candle light I find inside fundamental movement So when it's black this insomniac Taking original tact Take the beast in my nature under ceaseless attack I get no sleep I can't get no sleep

Yep!

Ambien doesn't do shit for me either.

I was peacefully asleep until my throat started acting up. Now I cant sleep either.

Well, after a couple cups of tea, some drugs, and home made chicken soup my throat feels better. Now I just dont want to go to sleep. [:)] By the way, what is Hydrocodone?

[b]Its the generic form of Vicodin.[/b] From what I understand of it its not a pain killer in the sense that it dopes you up. But rather it dulls nerve sensitivity to pain. I've been on Vicodin and darvaset before for broken bones and mild surgery. [b]for me[/b] It never gave me a buzz it just made the pain less noticeable. For a pain killer that will give you the proverbial buzz pretty much theres only one good ole morphine.
