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.

petrushka: Just attended a lecture on local history. Apparently the Presbyterian Scottish refugees who settled here called a 'frolic', what the Amish would call a 'barn raising'. First a working bee, then dancing and feasting.

mirrororchid: Sorry, dude. I think resentment has been the fuel for action in some SMs. It can be part of a process, eventually helpful.
