    I'm one. Always have been. I can't stop my mind from grinding on and I never really fall asleep when I should, even when I'm really tired. Sometimes I skip a night altogether.

    Like now, it's 6.15 in the fucking morning and I haven't slept one minute. Fucking sucks. I'll be a zombie all day tomorrow.

    I'm seriously considering going to the doctor and asking him for some sleeping pills.

    Does it have bad side effects?

    I mean real ones that you really notice, not the ones that are on the packaging.

    You gotta get Ambien. It'll knock you out in a sweet gentle way. I'm a chronic insomniac. Without Ambien I suffer the same thing. My brain won't turn off and I cannot sleep. It's not like I'm curing cancer or anything...just thinking about my day, my wife, my dog, my work...everything but no sleep. Not even 5 minutes worth. I've been prescribed Ambien for 2 years now. I take it nightly and it changed my life. Good luck to you.

    I have dealt with it for years. I have been on Ambien, Lunesta, and Restoril. I have tried Melatonin too.
    The only thing that works and lets me function the next day without a sleeping pill hangover is a good medical grade marijuana.

    That sounds like good shit. I think I'm gonna make an appointment this Monday. I fucking hate this shit. A couple of bad nights in a row also makes me feel kinda depressed.

    I tried weed, it makes me fall asleep but it makes me super lethargic and completely removes my ambition to do anything, even the next day.

    I got it bad, especially when i'm worried about things. Can't take scripts, cuz ambien almost made me burn my house down. I cooked stuff and left the stove on for hours with no recollection.

    It's helped me more than anything else. It just takes a little bit, I go to sleep peacefully, and when I wake up in the morning, I don't have the drug haze like I did with pharmaceutical sleep aids, or over the counter stuff like Tylelon PM.
    When I was taking Ambien, I would wake up in random places in my house, like a recliner, or a kitchen chair, or on a patio chair in my backyard and no recollection on how I got there. It was only a matter of time before I got hit by a car or some shit.
