My Insomnia has reached a new level !!!! HELP !

There is a "Preferences" option to view or not views sigs. Apparently the default is OFF? . I turned it ON.

Now I will be able to see signature. I see yours "My previous sig got deleted". :(

Will now look for Soureshs' signature. Hopefully his sig will contain secret serve tips and other keys to the universe.

Where is the ASL button?

Woke up at 1:30 am. Darn.

Lay in bed till three, then had a glass of warm milk and did some tough reading till 4 or so. THought i could sleep but nothing happened. So went for a walk at 6 for almost an hour.

Wimbledon is coming soon. And Halle should be starting today. Can't afford to be living like a zombie for too long.

Aah, Alan Watts. I love his voice and accent. What he says doesn't do much for me, though. He intellectualizes things too much rather than talk of instruction.

I prefer to listen to Tolle or Leonard Jacobson. Or Michael Langford who IMO goes to the root of the issue unsparingly.

To come to the video you linked, I do not have the ability to imagine possible futures that would be better than the current moment. I am happy as things are today, .... actually I am wrong there. I wuold love a future in which i could fall asleep as my head hits the pillow and sleep 7-8 straight hours and wake up refreshed. Beyond that not much.
 
@Sentinel , I used to have organic cacao nibs with my breakfast or salads...I often had foot cramps easily when playing tennis and on and off throughout the day.

Then, I stopped having cacao.

I never have foot cramps anymore.

Probably you need to avoid any forms of chocolate / cacao.

Are those positions that help ?
Take the first one, if I tuck one arm up, the blood circulation stops completely, and the arm goes dead. totally dead like meat. Not asleep. I have to lift it up with the other hand and drop it on the ground like a piece of dead meat. It is horrible.

The second row is cut off, do you have a link to the website?

I actually slept all night last night till my alarm at 7am. I did wake up several times, but managed to fall asleep again.

Which means I missed my morning walk, but will try and compensate at 10am since it is cloudy and cool (only 31C).

Probably you need to avoid any forms of chocolate / cacao.
Thanks. THat is like not breathing for me.

But with giving up sugar, I have given up chocolate :(

You can do a reverse image search in Google image search. Save that image in your hard drive. Click the camera icon in Google image search's search prompt and upload that image you saved, in Google image search prompt.

what does the picture of "can't stay asleep" imply ?
Am i to put one hand behind my head to stay asleep ?

I wish these pics came with an explanation. The second link was filled with malware links that popped up saying my Mac was infected :(

Sorry about the malware links. I hope you didn't click any of the pop ups. When you see those, just close your browser. They're mostly fake warning.

I wonder why I didn't get any popups? Maybe because of the ad-blocker extension in my Google Chrome browser.

I don't know if those pics are based on any study or research.

I do believe I have some ad-blockers on Safari since I do get warnings from content providers that I am blocking. But this one did open tabs. I think it is javascript. I would have to disable javascript to disallow those tabs from opening.

I doubt that they are research based. Otherwise there would have been details. Considering the malware I would think they are just aggregrated information sites which get revenue through those malwares. Not sure about this really. Maybe those sites get javascript injected into them midway.

I remember one torrent site saying it was working on removing such things from their site, and had succeeded but whenever I clicked a link some junk site would open with pron. I had to disable javascript to get it to work.

Ever since I got a memory foam mattress I never complained about sleep at all.
CBD oil might help sleeping if you live where it is legal.
Group coupon site has good deals on that oil and memory foam mattresses for that matter.
 
I have some redwood trees in the TV room and a few oak trees and poison ivy in my bedroom.

5 Houseplants That Can Help You Get A Better Night’s Sleep
Who knew a houseplant could help you get some shut-eye?

If you have a hard time sleeping at night, adding some houseplants to your home is likely not the first thing you think of when trying to find a solution. As it turns out, certain plants can help you relax, as they naturally clean out the air and emit scents that are calming and soothing. If you want to look for a healthy, alternative way to sleep better at night, you may want to try bringing some new plants into your bedroom.
Here are five houseplants that can help you sleep better at night.

1. Lavender
Lavender is one of the most well-known scents that can help relax you and induce sleep. The plant has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety and can help with insomnia and restlessness.
Photo by flamesworddragon 2. Jasmine
The fragrance of jasmine also can help improve your sleep. German researchers found that the scent of jasmine is as effective as Valium and similar drugs for relieving anxiety and promoting sleep.
Photo by Jevgenijs Slihto 3. Aloe Vera
In addition to soothing sunburns, the aloe vera plant can help purify the air, ridding it of harmful chemicals from things like cleaning products.
Photo by olgaberrios 4. English Ivy
This houseplant is one of the best air purifiers, as it can help to remove mold from the air. This can help relieve allergic symptoms, which may be interfering with your sleep.

Photo by The Equinest 5. Snake Plant
The snake plant is another great air purifier that can clear your room of household toxins. It is also known as the “bedroom plant,” as it gives off oxygen at night, unlike other plants that store but don’t release oxygen at night.

Out of all these, I think Aloe Vera is the most common one here. Although people keep it outside in the sun usually.
Jasmine is quite common in India in detergents, but i don;t know about the plants. Even Lavender is used in toilet products a lot. I can check up about these two.

thanks.

I am on a two night sleep streak !!!

Went to bed at 11pm and woke at 5:50am and went for an hours walk. However, i got up after every hour (often to pee) and often thought it was morning, only to find it was midnight, or 2am or 4am, 5am.

Hope I can keep it up.

Your main problem may be your pee, not your sleep then.
Don’t drink any liquids up to three hours before going to bed.
There are also pills which alleviate bad prostate. Have you tried them? Side effect: they make you sleep, so you should take them before you go to sleep.

Do they have side effects other than just sleepiness ?
Do I have to take them for life ?

The reason that I am going so often to leak is actually that with this sleep issue, strangely, my "bowl moment" has also shifted to late evening/before I sleep. So there will be a lot of peeing in the night.

I don’t understand the relationship between bowel moment and leak moment, they should not have a so close correlation.
Have you seen an urologist? If you need to have a leak every one or two hours in the night, that’s not normal, and that is maybe the main explanation of why you can’t sleep well at night. Pills may help, until certain point.

As far as I know, they don’t have side effects other than sleepiness and hypotension. I am talking about tamsulosin.

I don't know about others but a bowl moment does cause further leak moments with me.

Nope, that was just last night that I woke up every hour.
Otherwise, I just take a leak a couple times. And even last night, I only remember taking two leaks. Otherwise I was just waking up.

Do you still drink coffee? or tea? I recommend cutting out caffeine completely. Caffeine can make you want to pee and pee again.

It is bowel, not bowl. Though maybe with your explosive emissions, the toilet bowl might also move.

I also find a correlation between the two. A bowel movement followed by a good pee still sometimes still causes one more round of pee shortly after. I have attributed that to the muscles in the general area getting tensed up and not full relaxing after the first round.

Yes, I agree, they somewhat correlate.
I see I did not express myself correctly in my post. What I kind of objected is that it looked like Senti would only pee once (or at most twice) a day if he moves the bowel once (or at most twice) a day -as nearly all people do-, in the search of proper synchronicity.

LOL, I know it is bowel movement, silly. I was just trying to be a little delicate.

I had given up the one cup of coffee I have in the morning, but i found I was too groggy all day (esp not having slept at night). So i finally resumed the single cup of light coffee, just to get me through the day.

Yes, coffee and tea are diuretics but none after 9am.

After two nights of decent sleep, I woke up again this morning at about 2:30am. (Went to bed at 11pm).

Could not sleep after that, finally got out of bed at 4:30 maybe, did some exercises, did some meditation, and then went for a walk.

Today is gonna be a tough day. Federer's match is at 9pm the other day my eyes were crossing during the Milkman match :(

Though a 400+ post thread here is a remarkable achievement and an interesting story to follow, I recommend you visit some specialist.
It’s a nightmare the sleep deprivation scenario you describe.
There should be a solution to that.
Or is it that our life is a dream somebody else is dreaming?
 
I have a theory here. Koala sleeps 20 hours a day. How can they? They sleep on a huge tree! Maybe you should sleep on a tree. Build a tree house!

When I was young, each time my family visit my late grandma's house for school holiday, everybody seemed to sleep like a log. The house is in the middle of a huge huge orchard with many many trees all around the place. She had giant guava trees, durian trees, rambutan trees, jackfruit trees, bamboo trees, Manilkara zapota trees, Musa acuminata trees, orange trees, lime trees, chili plants, pineapple plants, breadfruit trees, etc etc. It's so peaceful and quiet there, away from big cities and traffic.

Senti needs a nice cosy warm dark place - he often dreams about it on one popular thread around here when he reminisces about a planet that's away from all the brouhaha of planet earth.

It's not just you. After one of your bowel movements no one can relax their muscles. There is general apprehension and fear. Old folk look around with a sense of impending doom, and women gather their crying children around the folds of their skirts. It is horrible. Then that wonking voice from the Public Emergency System comes on the radio for a moment drowning the fading echo of your most recent fart and everybody feels much better if only for a few seconds.

Please, keep your potty mouth ramblings where they belong (the Wimbledon or Sureshs threadings.)

The image is cut off on all sites. Maybe it is a quack site.. Here is a similar one.



We’ve all dealt with the annoying problem of waking up in the middle of the night and being unable to fall back asleep.

But if this happens often, it’s time to remove your favorite tech toys from your bedroom. The light they emit is likely waking you up and messing with your REM cycle. This article explains how light emitted by electronics can have an impact on your sleep cycle.

Also, wearing a well-designed sleeping mask to bed is one of the most effective and easy ways of making sure you block out all the light when you sleep. The sleep mask should be comfortable, fits your face, and block out 100% of light.

Have you been hitting the happy hour a little harder than normal?

If so, alcohol consumption could be to blame. Try sticking with club soda when you go out.

Finally, make sure the temperature in your bedroom will help you to fall asleep. Aim for 20-22 degrees Celsius, or between 68-71 degrees Fahrenheit.

Just to put a close on this.

Seems like things are normal now. I get into bed at about 11:30pm and wake up at about 6:00pm and head out for a walk/jog.

It's been working for the last few days, and I am feeling good all day.

I think maybe the morning walks helped reset my circadian rhythms.
