    I read that Wilt Chamberlain had notorious insomnia. He would would sometimes skip sleeping and go on road trips by himself to pass the time.

    Also, Junior Seau had it too which helped caused his suicide.

    I wonder what it's like not to be able to fall asleep on your own.

    I'd bet this thread would help cure a person's insomnia.

    I have a sleep disorder probably because I've been on nightshift since the 80s. I take a huge amount of seroquel. I can't fall asleep on my own.

    Let's try not to blame others for our own inadequacies.

    I'm saying that you are a bore, and you have only yourself to blame.

    I medicate it away with OTC stuff. I've built up a pretty strong tolerance to the stuff and it doesn't work when you drink, so I like to mix it up with a bedtime bowl a couple nights a week.

    I've always have had trouble sleeping. I'd go to bed and wake up in the middle of the night not being able to get back to sleep. I now go to bed later and am doing better. Not everybody needs eight hours of sleep. I get by on 5 to 6 hours.

    i sleep about every 36 hours.

    for example i'll probably go to bed tonight at around 1am, wake up at about 7/8 then work all night and go to bed that next morning, wake up and work again at night and stay up all that next day and go to bed that night

    it's fucked but i suffer from insomnia like a mother fucker so i just go until my body cant stay awake anymore haha

    I can fall asleep instantly
    and sleep very soundly
    but very seldom do I need more than 5 hours
    often only 4

    can't remember the last time I slept near 8

    but no
    is the answer to your question

    I had bad insomnia for about 4 months. I felt like I had a constant thunder storm in my brain keeping me awake. I literally didn't sleep much at all for the entire 4 months. It took me a sleep medicine and an anti-anxiety medicine to reset my system and allow me to sleep. It was horrible!
