    Horny, can't sleep and it's keeping me up.

    Side Effect Of Spinal Meningitis

    25 years ago I had spinal meningitis. I lost the chemical reaction in my brain that lulls you to sleep. The neurologist put me on amitriptylin and it worked until about 2 years ago. Now I'm having a bad reaction to it. Dr.'s have tried everything. I dread a new Dr. "playing with...

    Is it because I fall asleep

    while still pining away in my heart for you that every black night without fail I see you pointlessly in my dreams?

    Ive always been a night owl.

    I think it is because I like the privacy I get out of it. Time to think and do whatever I guess. I had to leave the room where my boyfriend is sleeping because it is so tempting to touch and hold him and I know he needs his sleep for work. Boy do I love him :)

    When Nothing Natural Helps

    I have a terrible time at night.  I am so hypervigilant that even when my dogs snore I wake up.  If they lick their paws I wake up.  If my cat breathes near me I wake up.  When I was married I often slept in the guest bedroom as I couldn't...

    I cannot sleep because I cannot stop thinking.

    I keep thinking about how to make it work with my husband or how I can leave him. I just want my brain to turn off. I have an 11 month old baby boy. I just want to be able to be happy for him. How to turn off a brain at night so I can sleep??
