Insomnia rears it's ugly head...

I still can't sleep.  I experience insomia from time to time...Do you?  If so, I have a question for you.

What do you do when insomnia hits? (tylenol pm is not working)
  1. I clean, when I feel up to it.  Tonight, I cleaned the kitchen and I sorted recyclables. 
  2. I sorta watched a movie on tv.  Open Range.
  3. I played ticket to ride online. 
  4. I read for a bit.
  5. I chatted with Storm for a bit.  He's not a good conversationalist.  He just stared at me like I'm crazy.  =P
  6. I read other people's blog and commented.

Depends on how bad the insomnia is really. Some nights if I can't sleep, I'm online chatting. Others, I'll be up cleaning. If it goes on for more than one day I exercise/clean in an over-the-top fashion to try and exhaust myself. If it goes more than a couple of days, I go to the doctor and get a prescription. Having spent a March awake, I'd rather not repeat it.

It's more sporadic for me. It doesn't happen so much that I need drugs from a Doc. It hasn't happen in a while. I finally went to bed at 5:30 this morning. I woke up to a curled up kitteh on the bed with me.

Yeah, the sporadic I do the same sort of thing.. Though really, the *first* thing I do is put Chopin on and listen to it. I conditioned myself to relax and tune out when listening to it in University. lol! Still works now.

lol! It's amazing how something that can be so inconvenient can sometimes help accomplish things. :)

Do you need sleeping pills?

I don't get it enough to start on sleeping pills. Besides, I have horrible nightmares when I take them.

Do you take naps in the afternoon?

nope, I'm not much of a napper. It doesn't make me feel better. I end up feeling like I'm dragging and I'm usually groggy.
