    How many people here are insomniacs? It turns out that the majority of people that I chat with regularly on here are.

    Sorcerer
    Alex8
    Madame Zora
    Me (yes, I talk to myself regularly :wink: )

    A few others, that I don't know if it's ok to mention, but now I'm curious about it.

    It may just be who's on when we're here. Thanks to differences in time zones, I get to talk to hunky Lex who is a total morning person.

    Personally, I'm allergic to sunlight.

    The nights were i see only 3 hours of sleep (after taking a sleep aid) are numerous. Genetics seems to be a large culprit for me, as 6 sleep studies in 3 different states have all failed to yield any *physical* cause for my sleeplessness. Of course, my ad meds do have an "upper" effect....

    Welcome to the club. Step lightly and close doors gently so you don't wake the morning people:mad: :wink: .

    I'm an inveterate insomniac ... not as bad as some, perhaps.
    Five hours sleep is a lot. I've just had it. Feels wonderful.

    Hmmmm, i think, with the right treatment (including some help from a certain boy toy we both know *hints at self*) you could be sleep like a lamb, 8 hours a night, 7 nights a week.

    You'd help me count sheep? What would you do when we reach the high numbers?

    Hope springs eternal ... in my breast, anyway.
    I take it you hang by your ankles during the daytime.
    Does it help?

    I end up sleeping odd hours and people:
    1. Think it's their mission to get me to get up at 7 and go to bed by 10
    2. Think my sleeping habits are a result of some moral deficiency
    3. Think I sleep all the time and don't realise I'm quite productive while they are sleeping more than I did.
    My father thinks it's a holdover from my druggie days but I've always been this way.

    My attitude now is basically "Fuck you, this is the way I am". I have some sleeping pills from my doc. Sometimes they don't work at all, sometimes I'm groggy for 2 hrs after I wake up. I generally don't like taking them and don't most of the time. This has affected my work schedule and my social life. My friends are other insomiacs and nocturnals. Every time I've had an early morning gig, I end up getting worn down and sick. When people question me, I ask them if they could keep my hours. They usually look at me incredulously and sometimes they get it.

    If only you was on AIM. My away message when i go to sleep (or, when i try to go to sleep, as is most often the case) is: "I'm counting sheep... I'll get back to you when i reach sheep number 2,439"

    You know I sleep in a coffin in the center of a pitch black room.

    I get 7 or more hours of sleep every night. I am up at 5 AM (Monday-Friday for the gym) and usually crash by about 9:30 or 10 PM.

    I have never been able to function on little or no sleep.

    I take exception to that. I never accept money for sex. Now... diamonds, rubies, emaralds, saphires... maybe.

    Regular rest is why you're so gorgeous and virile.

    My sleep hours are erratic. I am on the West Coast of the U.S.A. and if I go to bed before midnight, like 10 PM, then I am up at 1 or 2 AM and am up for the rest of the day. If I go to bed at or after midnight, then I am up at 3 or 4 AM.

    So I don't know if that would count as insomniac or just not needing a lot of sleep.

    But Vladchilla, you forget ... I haven't talked to you since the Transylvanian Summit.
