    Chronic Fatigue and Broken Sleep

    Hi. I suffer from chronic fatigue which I could not find a reason for until I read or heard somewhere of a man whose doctor made all the tests needed for his case to no avail, and then finally told him to live with it. AS the patient was on his way out, the doctor called him...

    Dead Tired

    I am lucky if I get 3 hours of sleep.  I have tried everything from drugs, to teas, to eating foods that induce sleep, even brought a new bed, but nothing.  I am so tired, listless and depressed because of this.  I do not suffer from sleep apnea or snoring I just...

    Sleep Deprived and Pretty Fed Up

    It's been so long since I had an unbroken night's sleep that I feel like I've always been this way.  I have no trouble in getting to sleep but I just can't seem to stay asleep.  If I'm lucky I might manage 2 hours before waking, but on a bad night I waken up after 30...

    Never Fully Rested...

    I never feel fully rested, I am always tried, and always wanting to get some more sleep. I just never feel like I am fully rested. I am just so damn sick of being so damn tired all the time.

    Waaaaahhh!!

    I just want one good night's sleep where I'm not waking up every three hours tossing and turning. I woke up for work at 830 yesterday morning, came home and took a nap from 4 to 8, and went back to bed at 11 like it was nothin'. ALWAYS tired.

    There Has Been Improvement

    I used to have SEVERE insomnia. I would literally get 1-3 hours of sleep a night (if I was lucky.) Now, I get maybe 5 hours on a good night. So it has definitely improved, but I rarely ever get solid, uninterrupted sleep.

    Normal Sleep?

    If I don't take meds I am up at 4am tossing and turning  then completely drained by 3pm. If I take meds I over sleep, miss appointments and do nothing all day, until I fall asleep, only to wake at 4am, because I didn't take meds.   *sigh*

    Interesting Article..

    For what it is worth, this article helped me see my sleep pattern differently. http://www.psychiatrictimes.com/display/article/10168/55271 Ha, ha... Maybe my work time is more a source of my problem.
