    yes and no i take zyprexa but only when i really need it
    i take it when in really need some sleep but i will ,not take it all the time i don’t want to become addicted to it
    the most powerful drug is your own mind positive thinking relax a little more reason and logic in life trust me when i think it about it it all makes sense but it’s incredibly hard to do but practice makes perfect

    what you have i have for a year and a half .for me not sleeping makes me anxious
    your fight and flight respons can be so strong and so mestup it can overpower your sleepdrive
    my is so bad i can be awake for days. you are right is the adrenaline that keeps you awake.
    its natures cruel joke it plays on us.

    @martin there is a world of difference between little sleep and no sleep at all but you have a point ok we feel sick from exhaustion and we complain a lot ,at least we are safe

    symptoms are the same chest pain ,nausea ,feeling groggy and depressed i even got fever a couple of times from exhaustion.and my heart beats faster from lack of sleep and my blood pressure is high.
    i have no problem any more if it’s just one day without sleep i am used to it by now.
    it starts to affect me when sleepless nights are coming in a row.
    it’s just physically and mentally hard it takes over your whole life.
    there are times i think this is going to kill me one day
    but i told this in this forum before one good night of sleep makes us insomniacs feel we won the lottery
    one good night and we become more human again
    i am glad for you ,you beat this beast cos insomnia is no joke at all

    i can go days in a row without sleep my longest episode was 4 in a row
    mostly i go 2 to days awake sometimes even 3
    then at breaking point a take me sleeping drug and that gives me a good 5 hours
    when i not take my sleeping drugs the max i can sleep is about 3 hours interrupted
    so in a week 2 to 3 days without any sleep at all
    that’s my normal i have weeks when it’s even worse
    for me every night i do sleep is a gift is better than nothing even its only 2 to 3 hours

    8 hours i only slept that when i was a child
    what i want give for a couple of hours every night
    but instead we get the total sleepless ones
    i think the say 8 hours because insomnia is also a money grabbing machine
    if you give people the illusion the have insomnia the spent a lot of money

    i can relate with you the also give me antipsychotic drug ( zyprexa).
    because it’s the only thing that give me a couple of hours of sleep.
    when i first take these drugs i was out for hours and felt like a vegetables all day.
    but like all drugs your body get used to it.
    my insomnia have become so bad i go days in a row without sleep and when i almost crackdown i take the drug.
    the drugs are and lack of sleep are responsible for your drowsiness and lack of concentration.
    i have the same symptoms you describe. i walk around like i have the flu at its worst.
    and if that is not all i have chest pain from it,high blood pressure and when i am close to me breaking point i get fever from exhaustion.
    i understand your desperation there are time the only thing i want to do is cry.and when you are able to sleep a couple of hours is like a won the lottery. you become more human again.
    just don’t give up i know what a hell insomnia can be.i had to give up a job i loved to do , lost social life and my mental health.
    if it can be any comfort to you , you are not alone.
    if you are willing to talk i am more than happy to

    yes and no a normal sleeper is probably not affected by it at the least he is a little drossy but us insomniacs we are sleep deprived there is nothing left in our tank trust me i know the feeling after yet another sleepless night one is ok but if they come in a row that’s hard i understand you are angry and frustrated we have a million questions and not one helps us sleep better

    nope is that was the case i had to die so many times i at least got once or twice episodes a month where i dont sleep for 2 or 3 days in a row i average on 2 to 3 hours a night for more than a year now the times i sleep 5 hours a night in a month i can count on one hand that is extremely good for me
