I used to do that. Since being medicated I get at least five hours a day now.
Yeah I was awake for more than 61 hours , I even managed 18 hours a day .
I've been an insomniac all my life. Without sleeping meds I sleep amybe two hours in a 24 hour period. Before medication I had never had REM sleep, so my body was reacting to sleep deprivation, but Meds help me get a good balanced sleep. Two years ago I switched over to all natural organic medicines and my body has adjusted well to them.
When I was going to this "Pain and Wellness Center", They were giving me enough pharmaceutical, control substance, pain "meds" that I almost "croaked over"....that is, taking it only as prescribed!...I chose to get away from all of it...I went through withdrawal, comparable to having a bad "flu" [and like not being able to scratch an itch-that's bugging you]...and I could not sleep!...I stopped going to this "drug- money maker-center"...I'm much better now...soley thanks to ME! Thank God my momma ain't feed no dummy!!!....I sleep much better now....sez me....
sorry, I misunderstood...I just woke up...lol...in that case, they really do help you, you're lucky that you know what relieves these probs,,,cheers!
What do you suffer from? You sound like you have bipolar symptoms? You can't be skipping your meds. Getting no sleep like that can give you psychotic behaviour. You don't want that!!!
How long have you had this diagnoses? You know how important it is to stay on your meds. No matter how good your manic behaviour has you feeling....Would hate to see something bad happen to ya. =(
No problem. I'm in nursing school and have been working with patients who have gotten in a bad place due to not taking their meds. Would hate for that to happen to you.
Ive battled insomnia a bit this year for different reasons but 61 hrs is not good. Your mind can snap anytime after 48 hrs so you need to rectify it so you are at least sleeping at that interval
Where were your drugs? Or do you mean you were awake only 61 hours in a week? That's about my style - take the drugs and conk out. I sleep way too many hours.
I wish I could go without mine. I was forced to last weekend and the pain was unbelievable.
gotcha, you were awake 61 hours in a row.
