My symptoms so far are depression, fatigue, insomnia, and raised blood pressure. This is day 3
No tremors, hallucinations, seizures, or dilated pupils

Also I have incredible thirst and alcohol cravings. No appetite

Took too long doing bio ethics paper. I had to work 9 hours today. Then I came home and heated up yesterday's dinner (slow cooker pork roast with veggies and rice). Low stress day, only a sip of alcohol. I had left over wine from some slow cooker chili.

I need this. I was telling someone this week, cause I didn't sleep well, that my mother used to wake me up for school by patting my butt and saying time to get up. EVERY DAMN MORNING id think, already? That was kindergarten   

I started getting migraines in 07. Tried ambien is 08, I think. Ambien gives me a good 4 hours regularly. I don't know if I have to take it every night but I don't sleep the whole night. I gave some to my mother, insomnia. Thanx ma and I still have an old bottle around.

I take prescription allergy medication, like Benadryl x 10. The bottle says take 4 a day but I usually take 1/2 at bedtime. WIDE awake in 4 hours. My migraine meds cause fatigue/ insomnia <WTF?

I had a good run up un til Monday. Im caffeine sensitive. I don't even take a B vitamin everyday. I used to think, id be great in med school smh. I just got an overnight position so... yay me!

Ming from the info posted or through ur own methods, what for of action would u like to try? And my granny used to turn the lights on and sing a random freestyled good morning song. I loathed the morning.

Do u plan ur day ahead of time? Do u drink enough water? How do u deal with stress? Do u try to go to bed at the same time every night? I'm trying to see what we can do.

Southern that's great! Minus the late part. What do u use to wake up? I use my iPhone alarm in the harp sound. I set it to give me exactly 30 minutes to get ready because I hate waking up. I tried the jawbone up bands natural wake up method. The band vibrates on ur arm within a 30 min time of what time ur supposed to wake. It says that it chooses a time when ur sleep phase is light. I was able to wake up, but I never felt refreshed anyway, so I went back to my alarm.

Coco, that's a good plan. Have u tried just getting out of the bed and writing down ur thoughts for a few moments, then mentally agreeing with urself that you've spent enough time thinking and now u can relax and sleep?

I drank a glass of water after sex, laid awake for 30-45. I got about 5 hours of "sleep." I kept waking up because I was too hot or too cold. Then I was randomly anxious about waking up. My man drove me to work today. I couldn't snap out of zombie mode and he was not amused by my accident yesterday. I drank a cup of coffee so far. Oh and 1.5 cups of water. I ate breakfast, but I haven't taken my multi vitamin yet.
