Really one of the most annoying things ever. Let me sleep and when I fall asleep let me sleep for more than 2 hours at a time.

Going asleep later than usual, earlier than usual, exercise, relaxing, no coffee (didn't help but also gave me a magnificent headache for a week when I tried it), tea, melatonin supplements and wanking until passing out. none of this helps. I wake up after a few hours of sleep completely refreshed for a few hours and then it's back to being tired or just simply can't sleep in few days until the strain becomes too much and the cycle breaks.

Asked a doctor for something that could help me sleep since I have a bit of a blood pressure issues at the moment and lack of sleep and subsequent stress might be very bad for me in the long run but he said he wouldn't want to get me hooked in to sleeping pills. Which is true but come on...

So anyone else suffering from this at the moment and what's your poison to try?

I'm not really suffering from insomnia... But I haven't had a refreshing sleep in like ten years, for a plenty of reasons. I always feel like ass no matter how much I slept and no matter how deep and relaxed that sleep is... I feel always tired... I can't even remember what it feels like waking up refreshed and active...

I guess it has a lot to do with my psychological problems... Shit is annoying...

So, no clue how to help you
... Drugs and alcohol are probably a bad solution :unsure:

Oh shit, I've had one of those and fuck those are scary. We were in a hotel with the whole family sleeping in one bed and I woke up in the middle of the night, couldn't move could think etc but I had a strong feeling that there was something evil and threatening just beyond my vision.
