    Greetings,

    I'm gonna be off the forum for a while (not sure how long) due to some stuff that's been happening recently (not on the forum).

    I'll be back ;)

    I'm back, sooner than expected :)

    I moved away from Fishlore (temporarily) because I was using it at night, which was not helping with my insomnia. I also thought that the backlit screen at night could be making my anxiety/depression worse.

    But after going cold turkey I found that I was just too addicted to this forum, and I do enjoy a chat in the night :) I could use the web browser on my kindle which is not backlit.

    Thank you all!

    Welcome back. Im sure if we ask mike nicely he can ban you at night.

    But seriously try acupuncture for your insomnia it was the only thing that helped me. Well that and getting drunk.

    Glad to see you back!

    Have you ever tried Melatonin pills? I always keep a bottle in my nightstand -- they help me drift off to sleep without leaving me knocked out or groggy and most kinds just dissolve in your mouth.

    Ambiens helped me immensely, but those are prescribed. I now take either Advil or Tylenol PMs. They work well, too. I try not to take it too many times, as I don’t think any medicine is healthy in the longterm.

    Yep it works great. My wifes a traditional chinese doctor so i get her to treat me.

    If you can find an actual doctor not a massage/accupuncture therapist give it a go.

    I’ve never had it done to deal with insomnia, but I have had acupuncture done tons of times for various muscle injuries. I used to have it done almost every day when I ripped my achillies tendon, it helped.

    If your worried about it hurting, it doesn’t :)

    No pills. I've seen them ruin lives :(

    I will take pills in severe sickness but not influenza and definitely not insomnia.

    I agree that there are a lot of pills that can cause damage or addictions. (Not to mention side-effects.) Melatonin is natural, however. It's the only kind of pill I have on hand except headache pills.

    It's natural, so is valerian root. But I've read that your brain can start to depend on melatonin supplements. Diet plays a part in getting good sleep, there are foods you can eat that help. Avoid caffeine after lunch. Make sure you get plenty of natural sunlight during the day. Turn down or minimize the lights inside the house at night or at least an hour before bedtime. Anyways, welcome back :)
