I started gigging again recently, after years of retirement due to ill health.

All there time my health 'retired' me, I couldn't get out of living musician's hours. coming home from the gig. winding slowly down. reaching bed in the early hours. frequently around daybreak.

now I'm working - life feels natural again.

There's been a two year break in this thread, but the insomnia's still stalking. it helps to share solutions I think. I'm prepared to try Melatonin, it's available OTC (over the counter) here too (in Oz). I think Amos might have recommended it as well. I hope it helps (as it did for kendall) and that I don't have horrible feelings and no sleep with it. kat, tape [a different sort] reminded me that somewhere i have a hypnotic CD - I'll have to go searching for that one as well.

here's to a snooooozzze soon!

Melatonin gave my brother and I, both, horrible feelings and no sleep! YMMV!

My sleep has been pretty good since we got the bipap and tape on the mouth at night for sleep apnea figured out. Except tonight. Our washer didn't work right, the supposed to be clean sheets feel like cardboard and my kid is in hospital for the night with a possible reaction to BP meds, all of which is keeping Mom awake! It doesn't help that my Rog could fall asleep on a bed of nails in two seconds and never wake until the morning no matter what is going on!

Thanks for letting me stop by and for listening!

kendall, here in UK melatonin is only obtainable by prescription from a GP. People therefore buy it online. It isn't particularly harmful nor addictive. But buying medication online is very dodgy, as you can never be sure the tablets are what they're supposed to be. But I realise that folk desperate to sleep might be driven to such measures.

Hey you insomniacs, I just discovered a real sleep aid and it is OTC, no prescription. Melatonin. One tablet half an hour before bed time and I sleep like a log.

It's no problem sleeping, I could do that for England. I'd get a gold medal in the Olympics for it. The problem I'm having lately is terrible nightmares. I scream my head off and scare the life out of my poor husband. He's ever so good and soon comforts me, but whatever is causing this? I'm not on any medication, and eat the same things as usual. Last night, a black expressionless face hovered over me and I knew it was Death. A woman with scarlet lips accompanied it brandishing an enormous machete dripping with blood! Very Harry-Potterish eh? I don't watch horror films or read horror books. Am I going bonkers? (Answers on a postcard please...)

12:15am in Kent UK, and about an hour and a half till I go to bed.

I sleep about five hours a night(used to be four when I was working, but I have an hour lay-in no I'm retired) and I'd rather sit up till 2:00am and wake at 7.00am than the alternative of being awake from 3:00am with nothing to do.

I've been getting emails from a family member saying she's worried about me, and she wants to call me on the phone. I've been waiting to hear her message on my phone machine, but she hasn't left any.

Tonight, just as I'm about to go to bed, I check my email one last time, just on a whim, instead of turning off the computer. She writes to say that if I don't answer the phone at two tomorrow, she will "have" to call the local police.

How am I supposed to sleep, now?

Hey Ggfs! Ah, doing all those Christmas things, family things. I think Santa is one of us! Why else does he do his thing at the witching hour? As I said, for good or evil the really interesting stuff happens at night.

I hope you all had a good holiday. I did.

Janie, I was reading about the Clan McMillan to which I claim ancestry. One of the young sons had gone off to school and was home at the Christmas break. Wolves had attacked some of their sheep in the Highlands so Papa took his son out with him to address the problem. Snow was on the ground and their only warmth was in the clothes they wore. When night fell, they set about to sleep upon the snow when Papa looks over at his son who was fashioning a pillow from the snow: "You've gone soft on us now, ha'e you?"

No insulation maeve? None in the walls either?

Well, soon enough, albeit none too soon, you will be able to cozy up in the yurt.

I understand that Maine winters and North Carolina winters are different creatures, but the six years we lived in the Airstream without underpinning or skirting were pretty tolerable, and temps in the 20's and teens F at night were not uncommon. We used a radiant propane heater we turned on in the mornings to huddle in front of, and to take the essential chill off of the front part of the trailer at night. Wool hats and socks were our friends in the evenings while I fixed supper, and we retreated early to the bed to cover up with a combination of heavy wool Hudson Bay blankets and down mummy bags. Would set the alarm about 30 minutes early to get up and light the heater, then dive back into bed until the deep chill was off the kitchen/sitting area. (We also spent one winter in a tent. We got through, but the travel trailer was much more tolerable when we graduated to it.)

I think the main thing, in either setting, was we were very careful to dress so that we kept reasonably warm during the day and did not allow our core body temps. to drop.   I'm allergic to wool, but nothing works better to maintain body warmth when one is not out working up a sweat. The new synthetics are "active wear" and are great if one is outside and active, because they breathe. None of them provide enough to maintain body heat in a cold, indoors setting.   They are not designed for outdoor living, but for outdoor activity.

Wool or not, wear a cap to bed, and as many clothes and covers as needed to stay warm in bed. Warming the bed with a brick or rock is good, but you still need enough insulating bed and head cover to maintain body temps. through the night. Go to bed before you feel significantly chilled.

And I bet you know all of this already.

Hi Maeve,
Hope I haven't missed you - didn't mean to offend about your level of coldness, sorry. We're -5C for about two weeks of the year, so we have to outdo somebody when it happens.
All the best to your propane heater, your straw bales, and, of course, you and yours.
I think I'll go and kick some snow while it's still there, then back to the liquid central heating.
Good luck, Dave.

Davy, we're in an uninsulated camper(caravan) with a small propane heater. 34F/1C is comfy outside with a jacket and a hat, but not so nice for sleeping. It was -14C outside.

The moon, stars, and our big LED Christmas star were lovely with the early predawn sky, however. The chickens were glad of fresh unfrozen water and some maize and sunflower seeds with their layer pellets.

Anyway, Santa's been and gone, and I'm a couple of bottles better off, so "I don't care if it hails or freezes,

There was no TV in the middle of the Atlantic and the only radio station was WWVA Wheeling West by god Virginia.
