I've had severe insomnia most of my life. It's never gone away. Some weeks I get as little as 2 hours of sleep. I've tried absolutely everything that doctor's have perscribed.<quoted text>
Hate to tell you this, but insomnia does not go away. I know what you mean. I sleep for about 2 hours, wake up, go back to sleep for an hour, etc. I have no wake/sleep cycle. Been like that for the past few years. You can get by on little or no sleep for a few days, but no longer. One of the worst things that you can do is worry about getting up for work. I used to do that a lot, but I found that getting up and doing something relaxing, like reading or watching mindless t.v., instead of looking at the clock works the best. Then you get drowsy and fall off to sleep. If you really have trouble, get one of the over the counter sleep aids. Basically, they are just antihistamines, like what you would use for allergy or colds. They are not physically addictive, but you can get psychologically dependent on them. When I used them, I would take them for 2 or 3 nights when I had to get up early and lay off them when you didn't (like weekends, if you don't have to work, etc.) Good luck to you.
I live with it okay. From time to time though, at 2am or so, I wonder, how long can one person live without sleep. lol
