Unfortunately my insomnia has gotten the better of me this weekend. I haven't slept more than a few hours for the last few days. I have had worse, 1 week 1 hour of sleep. I'm only on day 3, 8 hours sleep at the moment, but it is really getting to me for some reason.
And before you all tell me to go see a doctor or whatever. I've been and done all that. Any medications that actually do work for me only seem to work a few times. So the expense and hope just ain't worth it.
I have also tried all sorts of exercises and various techniques to help me sleep. I find the best thing for me to do is just relax and not fight being awake. I usually get more rested that way. I say rested because sleep doesn't always come.
I have worried about my health but everything seems to be fine. My doctors don't seem to believe that I don't sleep very much because they say I seem healthy and well rested. Although one of my doctors has said it may just be the way I work. I am just one of a few people in the world that need very little sleep to function normally.
I never sleep very much, If I sleep for at least 4 or 5 hours it is a really good sleep. But I am going through one of the bad periods and it is beginning to interfere with everything. It feels like the hallucinations are going to start soon.
That sounds worse than it is though. It isn't like I see people flying around or fish roosting in trees or anything like that. I start hearing things that I realize probably aren't there. Then come visual things like colours or shadows in the wrong places. Stuff like that. I can still tell whats real and what is just from sleep deprivation so it ain't that bad. A little disconcerting but bearable
The worse thing for me is the sore eyes and the brain unwilling to work properly for usually simple things. You would laugh at some of the words I have needed to spell check for this post. And also I apologize if none of this makes any sense. It does to me. But that's just because it was my disoriented brain doing the thinking
It's almost 3am here at the moment and I have an appointment in the morning but I don't know if I'm going to make it.
I'm going to go try and sleep again. Wish me luck...
