A good night will be 4 or 5 hours sleep, a bad night will be literally no sleep at all. I have tried everything, sleeping pills, herbal remedies, hypnosis, various forms of therapy - nothing works.


SP12 I feel for you as I know full well what you have gone thru. Nothing works. Not even therapy to reduce stress which is the main non medical cause of insomia? I too have had those nites when I finally fall alseep from sheer exhaustion when the sun peeps thru my window. That was before I started using any form of meds. I figured it was due to my snorning.
May I ask you two questions SP. Are you a big person with a large neck. Have you consulted a sleep doctor?

In answer to your questions - no I am not "a big person with a large neck". I asked my GP to refer me to a sleep clinic but, apparently, insomnia is not something they deal with (!).

Lets just say if last night is anything to go by, not very well. I may be up and about, but I feel like manure at the moment.

very sound living where I do very rural and with my dogs not much sounds are ignored plus at bed time I am usually very tired out and up very early several days to fish 0230 or close to it to drive to Oklahoma to Texoma to be at breakfast at 0500 with crew or friends. I Like a cool room with ceiling fan on. We have many coyotes especially at calving time and the dogs hear them and bark.

Thanks, between dogs and my neighbor friend I am blessed there they all keep me on track every day here. I feel that I have very good friends that I know I can depend on and have given the same back. I just finished a plumbing job and as I was starting dogs have a special bark for my neighbor coming over in her chair to see if she could be of any help to me, asked no just was coming to offer help and did so.

pardon me if my knowledge of western sleeping habbits is not quite there. i thought normally all use central ac, so why so much reference to heat and use of fan. i thought that was for our part of the world - even there, use of room ac is getting more common.

Here in the UK, most homes do not have Air Conditioning, we just open our windows and try and get a good flow of cool air through our homes. So if we are still too hot then we use fans. Having worked abroad, both in the middle and far east, where I did have the luxury of AC in my apartment and at work, it was welcome. If I was ever to build a home from scratch, then would include it in the design of the house.
