    so, after 4+ days of near complete sleeplessness, i had reached my wits end and decided to load up on antihistamines. so, sometime this morning, i took a bunch of a certain allergy med, and waited for sleep to hit me.

    oh, and did it hit me

    i hallucinated for a few hours, and fell asleep. i just woke up, after maybe 12 or 13 hours of sleep, and im more tired than i was before hand. i could probably sleep at least another 8 right now, but i think thatd screw me up worse than anything

    worst of all is that im staring at a dozen or so open instant message windows, because in my infinite medicated wisdom, i decided to message everyone who was on that early in the morning. im afraid to start sorting through them, as im sure that i made a fool of myself a dozen times over. i dont know how, while tripping balls, i couldve thought that that was a good idea.

    so, be weary of using a bunch of antihistamines to overcome a severe bout of insomnia. drug induced sleep isnt very restful, and you might wake up to an even more severe bout of facepalm.

    Friend of mine did the same thing. He hallucinated a row with his mum.

    Try mertazapine or zopriclone.

    Yes indeed it does. I was so tired tonight that I fell asleep with this site open unknowing if my parents ventured up the stairs to see it or not.

    i havent slept properly in days. i'm too scared to go back to my flat where i would have a good sleep but wake up in some panic state
    i'm having nightmares
    i look like a fucking corpse
    but i'm really very friendly and can talk/listen to my sister for ages when i'm laughing and stuff.
    i think i'm afriad of sleeping. i need a shower. i look like shit. i need to present myself as 'stable' to the crisis team tomorrow but they seem to be for my being discharged even though i was obviously unwell when they last saw me.
