I can sympathize with you. I'm still trying to break my own case of insomnia...c'mon look at the time on this post. But with me it's not so much sounds as it is physical things. Like if I leave my monitor in standby, I swear that I can see the freaking LED flashing even with my back turned and eyes closed. As a remedy to this I've started waking up earlier. So if I get up at like 8 or 9 AM, then by the time I get home from work and get a little playtime in, I SHOULD be tired. But as you can see, it looks like my body won't let me sleep either way. If anyone has a household remedy that doesn't involve drinking alot of cough syrup or a baseball bat then please us know...

...well over 50 hours now.. I just can't gain the will to go to sleep. Every time I try to go to sleep I think, "it's just a waste of time.."

Sounds as bad as mine. Before, I slept 8 hours. Then 4 hours. Now I just lie awake all night, bored to death.

My record currently, 67 Hours.

Damn I am good, hahaha!

gotien, try a sedative...

Heres what I do. I take a good thik book of the shelf. It has to be a good hard cover book for this to work. Know take the book raise it above your over your shouldrs and hit yourself as hard as u frigin can on the top of head. It works for anyway.

And after a few tries you have low enough intelligence to think, "2+3=chair"! So yea, sleep is a waste. Once again I am up all night :D

lol.....that really doesn't work all too well, I stay up much longer after i drink tea. hmmmmmm...........how the h*ll can you stay up for over 68 hours DM. I could only last about 38 hours. Then i fall asleep. But for frig sakes gotien, the best way I find to actually fall asleep, is doing something that will get you completely exhausted like for example doing strenous work, sports.

Insomnia is funny. I took off my glasses and kept seeing the frames all the time around my vision.

lmao.........now thats funny..........lol......but still, I don't get how you people just can't sleep. I'll admit that i do have problems sleeping but only on a small scale, like i have to lay in bed for about an hour even before coming close to falling asleep.

It's not so much I can't sleep... It's that my reason lacks the understanding behind it. I can't see how I truely helps when you are making yourself helpless for 4+ hours each day. Either way strenuous activity doesn't work, I'm training for the Marines whenever my body is ready to work and I still don't sleep much. Maybe the topic should be, "Overworked and Underslept"

I tried this with my encyclopedia. 1000+ pages...

It didn't knock me out though...hurt slightly, and I dented the hardback of the book....otherwise nothing...

I never have any problems. I have such a high tolerance to caffeine, I stay up 'til about 3:00 AM, and I sleep 'til about noon every day so as you can see I sleep too much.

i do see your point about sleeping. I always wondered why its so important to go to sleep at night. I find its just a huge waste of time. Just think about what you could be doing for that 4+ hours that some people sleep.

Sleep is essential, it's not a good idea to stay awake for more than 24 hours at isolated times.

Well, Ive never had insomnia. Ive had strange nights where I go to sleep, wake up 5 minutes later, go to sleep, wake up 10 minutes later etc. But that was because I had an illness.

By the way, Insomnia is a great album by Green Day :P

Lack of sleep can kill? I doubt it. Regardless I have gone beyond the point of death, what matters such a thing to an immortal? The undead cannot die again!

Lack of sleep makes Cornflakes taste funny. That's a fact.

Well, actually, the Cornflakes taste the same, you just think they taste funny. Your brain isn't functioning properly.

strange remedy i have when im hit with bouts of insomnia it ususally happens to me during the summer months i either ((A)) get my hair braided the process of it is sheer torture on a small scale imagine have your hair pulled strand by strand and tied in place and the process normally takes an hour longer now that my hair is longer or ((B)) i let someone comb it out and then blowdry it i dont know why but it always makes me sleepy and content even when im wide awake and sleep isnt for the weak its for the wise even the gods need rest and were all but mere mortals.....
