It's 6.45 pm in my jurisdiction, which must be near enough to 12 hours ahead of you Brother wewbwb. - I occasionally get insomnia these days, but back in the midst of my ILIASM shithole it was my constant companion. - Interestingly enough, back in October 09 when I left my ILIASM deal, my insomnia improved real quick (so did the eczema I had at the time too) and has only occasionally bothered me since. Usually when my stress levels get escalated. - The events (ILIASM deal / insomnia / eczema) clearing up when I got out could of course, have been co-incidental - but I think not. - I dunno if this is of any use to you, but back when I had insomnia bad, I eventually just went with it, and 'tried' to not fret about it. If I couldn't sleep, I'd get up, paint, read, walk, write, anything. Sooner or later, you just collapse, and sleep. I also came to the conclusion that it is quite possible to get by on very little sleep for about 6 days - presupposing that by then one is so fucked that you collapse and get at least 8 hours before the cycle starts again. It definitely takes the edge off one though, reflexes slow down etc. When I tried medication, I found the side effects worse than the insomnia. - I hope you - and any other ILIASM insomniacs - find a way to manage the issue. It is very debilitating.
This the "Shoutbox" -- basically a site-wide, group chat. (It's only visible to members.)
jetcity: Had to have my cat put down today. He was very old and he let us know it was time this morning. My wife went to visit her mother today So now It’s just me, the cats and dog and a couple cold beers. Now that’s a party right?

caballotierra: Hey all, I setup a new account since my W figured out my login and was using my posts against me. Since we're going through divorce, I thought it would be safer to remove my old name. Although I feel attached to it.

caballotierra: Does anyone know how to delete my old account? Right now, it's still searchable, which is a problem.

jim44444: hmisssunnybunny not only did andie delete her existence here she also deleted her tumblr account. Maybe her hubby found her online postings.

solodriver: I'm sad andie is gone too. She reached out to me when I first joined the group at a time when I was really sick, and talked to me everyday until I was well again and shared a lot of her stories with me.
