    the last week i've not been getting much sleep. i will be up from 24 to 40 hours and crash for a few hours, then do it again.
    the only way i've been able to get some sleep on a regular basis was when i was drinking. i'm not going to do that. causes to much stress all the way around. for everyone. i'm going on 30 hours at the moment w/out sleep. went 42 last time. before that was ???. was drunk and passed out. this has been going on almost two weeks. i just can't sleep. when i do finally fall out, the sleep i do get is broken up. is this normal. or is it what.

    I know how you feel, bud. I'm so tired during the day that all I can think about is how much I want to sleep when I get home. But if I can get 4 hours a night, I'm lucky. And it's usually broken sleep. 20 minutes here, 30 minutes there. Just not the deep sleep that I need. And once I wake up at about 3 am, that's all she wrote. I try to go back to sleep, but it just won't come.

    I found a forum dealing strictly with insomnia. You might find something useful on it. You can read it without registering.

    Insomnia at night can be caused by so many things. I have extreme difficulty sleeping at night too. For me, I think some is caused by hypervigilence. The fear of something happening if I sleep, because so often it did. Your biological time clock is probably a little messed up because of the hours you work too. I feel for you jcat. I know how tough it is. :hug:
