For as long as I can remember, I haven't had a normal night's sleep. I always have trouble falling asleep, no matter what pattern I get into. After a healthy 8 hour sleep I sometimes feel tired and shitty all day and can fall asleep after two hours of being awake. Sometimes after a crazy long day I'm wide awake and can't fall asleep when I want to. Nothing makes sense in terms of sleep in my life. Tonight I downright skipped an entire night, which I do every so often. I know I'm gonna feel like a zombie for the entire day.
Any of you also dealing with this shit?
i'm sorry that you're not sleeping well. sleeping 8 hours and being tired after a couple hours awake is odd. have you talked to a doctor? have you tried some perscription sleep meds? i never did them because i had enough bad habits.
when i named myself sstressed, i was waking up every hour on the hour, every night. i upped my pot dosage just before bedtime and it helped. if that wasn't enough, i slammed a beer or 2.
i did learn to not play games or watch intense movies etc for a couple of hours before bedtime. it helped.
oh, and good head just before helps a lot too. even if it doesn't help, it sure doesn't hurt.
