I have suffered from Insomnia since I was a child. I dont remember the last time I slept through a whole night. I talk to people and they tell me "I laid down and the next thing I know its morning" I have never used an alarm clock, because I never needed one, I am up wayyyyyyy before it would go off. I have never over slept, so I can never use that excuse. I have tried almost every drug on the market. Nothing seems to work. And in combination, I eat when I walk up. When I was very young my mother would find me in the kitchen eating. This continues through now. I would like to sleep an entire night. Last night I took my ativan, and could not sleep. I took another and finally fell aspleep at 2am. I was up every hour on the hour until 6am. I got up at 7am, not able to sleep any longer. I have learned to live with this. Anybody else suffer like this...I just dont sleep through the whole night. Up and down. Up and down. Sleep for a couple of hours then up and down. Back to sleep. I wish I could remain asleep for at least 6 hours.
