    15 and not a good sleeper

    On weekdays, I realistically get 6-7 hours of sleep a day. It also takes about 15-30 for me to sleep even with the lights out and in bed. I know, I know, adolescents needs >8 hours of sleep a day... But it's just so hard for me. I'm just so full of energy. I'm never tired or sleepy, I sleep better on cars than in bed. The last time I felt like I genuinely wanted to sleep at night was at a family party and I had a little too much of my Dad's wine. I don't takes energy drinks....

  • Sleepless nights

    HI there, I'm an addict for 3 years. During these years, I tried different drugs, but now it is not a subject. My problem why I'm here is insomnia. For now, I undergo treatment in the outpatient drug rehab detoxing my body from all this sh*t. I clearly realize that I'm on the right way and I'm doing the right thing. However, the other part of me is suffering from the emotional exhaustion. As a result, I experience irritation and anger from-time-to-time. Doctors prescribe me pills....
  • Teddy Bear Teddy Bear Turn Around. Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear Touch The Ground

    So I have a giant teddy bear. I sleep with him every night and I feel like I don't sleep much better because of it. I thought it would help make me sleep better, I mean isn't that something they do. Should I get more? Should I not sleep with it and see if it helps me sleep better? Should it help me sleep better? Are there good things and bad things about sleeping with teddy bears? What's the deal with teddy bears?!!!
  • Increased wakeful events when using BiPap

    I’m a paraplegic with OSA. My belief is that the inspiratory phase is so fast, even the slowest setting is 600 ms (.6 of a second!), that it causes a spasm in my body and thus the more wakeful events. I’m more tired using a BiPap than without. Any suggestions? TIA.

    Unrestful Sleep

    I go to bed at a decent hour and I end up falling asleep for about 3 hours and waking back up. I could sleep for like 9 hours and then wake up in the morning like I got half an hour. I never have a peaceful nights sleep, I'm always tossing and turning and it's effecting my overall persona. Can anyone help me on how I can remedy this?

    sleeping through the night

    Hopefully someone has some words of wisdom. First, I don’t think I have slept more than 6 hours since I was in my 20’s (I am 59) and I was always an early riser (around 530-6 am). I guess my first occurrence of insomnia first started about 13 years ago where I couldn’t get to sleep because my brain wouldn’t shut up. My family physician put me on a low dose of Xanax and that seemed to do the trick. About 2-3 years ago my insomnia changed from not being able to get to sleep to not being able to sleep....
