insomnia is AWFUL. Now that my baby is sleeping longer stretches at night, I am still up till 3 or 4. even though I'm exhausted. WTF.

Why are you up?

What awesome websites should I visit when I really can't sleep?

I'm exhausted to the point of tears the last few days, falling asleep during the day when I have to be up, but when night comes I can't fall asleep.

i didn't have my son last night, so i stayed up cleaning the fuck out of my kitchen. it looks awesome! i was going to go to sleep for a little while, but I figure I'll just sleep when I'm dead.

Have you tried any sleep aids? I get up 5 every morning to take care of my grandson.

Don't hate your brain, lady! Do you have any idea as to how amazing it is? Lay back and appreciate the electrical sparks of thought processes and physical response. I can't stand to see someone criticize their brain when it really is one of the most amazing parts of the human body.

ME TOO. I have no patience or energy and have to force myself to stay awake. I can't even mainline caffeine like I want to because of nursing the baby. aaarrrrgh. Have you tried melatonin?
