Sleep deprivation

Postby Pyrrho » Sat Jul 02, 2016 7:57 pm

How do I get over it. Ugh. Feels like I got shot at and missed, shit at and hit.

:(

Depends if it's the conditions (e. g. the job), or difficulty catching the nightly flight…

Would it be naive to suggest sleeping?

Aw I was looking for some magical cure-all like Angostura Bitters or something like that.

You get used to it eventually.

On those rare occasions anymore, where my sleep deprivation overcomes my insomnia and I wake up well rested it just feels weird anymore. Good, but weird

Here's a prescription:
– a nice platter of pasta (e. g. spaghetti alio & olio);
– one or two glasses of solid red wine (amarone);
– when drowsiness sets in, immediately to bed.

Good night, Pyrrho! :wink:

Not necessarily. Might work for some people, that sort off thing doesn't work for me. Unless I drink to the point of actually passing out, all alcohol does is make me groggy but not sleepy. My mind sets about fighting the effects of the alcohol so a part of me I can't control begins actively trying NOT to sleep when I am drunk. Ditto for pot it turns out. So it may or may not work for Pyrrho.

When you drink you can get an "adrenaline dump" that will wake you up after an hour or so. Again, assuming you do not drink yourself into an actual stupor/pass out.

For stupor/pass out few things beat ever-clear.

Or yes, the Bikers come by to rape you at all hours of the night, Tinky.

I suspect you should be use to it. Have you tried Valerian root?

Hey, don't focus on the booze – it's mostly the pasta which plays the sandman. But then, pasta without a bit of red wine is a pretty lady without a bodice, okay? :coolspecs:

Don't know whether Pyrrho's problem is actual insomnia, but I find that it doesn't go away with a shitload of carbs either.

What kind of sort of works for me is sort of playing trick on my own mind. I keep a very rigid sleep schedule (I go to bed and get up at the same time every single day, if I can help it, whether I am tired or not, even on the weekend), I never spend time in my bedroom doing anything but sleeping (so my mind associates that room with sleep and only with sleep), I never do anything that winds me up for at least an hour before bed, I never drink caffeine after 6 PM or so.

None of those things on their own do much, but in the aggregate, they help me sleep enough to at least function normall most of the time. Sometimes it gets so bad that those things don't really work either. THen....I am just shit out of luck

Taking turns overnights at Mom's. She doesn't sleep much.
