    I get only 4 hours a night on average.

    It sucks because when I have good intentions and go to bed early my body won't let me sleep. I know that my lack of sleep is one of my main causes of depression and feeling lazy.

    Zombie Either Way

    Either I cannot sleep or I take something that helps me sleep but makes me feel horrible all day. I will be hypnotized in two hours to correct this. I cannot wait.

    Damnit!! I Just Can't Sleep Again.

    I can't sleep.  I know all the ideas to help you sleep, but none seem to work. My migraine meds were switched, and I don't know if my body doesn't like them, etc., but something isn't working tonight.  I don't take sleeping pills anymore, or herbs...
