Subject: Mudcat Insomniacs.....
From: GUEST
Date: 10 Aug 00 - 10:49 AM

It appears that many thread messages occur between the hours of midnight and 5 am.

Is the Mudcat a cause or a cure for us nonsleepers?

Yawning, ar work.....

I's noticed that I can send a message during the day here in Wales + UK and it tells porkie pies (lies) and says its 4am - but honest it isnt, it's usually 10 am or there abouts.

(its the time difference in places)

I think Oz time is just about opposite US east coast time...that is, it's the same time a. m. there as it is p. m. here, or vice versa...but I don't know if it's the day before or the day after.

Date: 10 Aug 00 - 11:44 AM

My nocturnal habbits have got me accused of being a Vampire! I have never been an early to bed person but I have got worse since I started using the Internet. The main reasons for this are that I am unemployed and rarely have anything I need to do in the morning and that much of what I do, i.e. the people I chat with and hearme, tends to centre around American time even though I live in the UK so I find it more convenient to keep those hours.

I start on an HNC in Buisness IT at the end of this month so my habbits will have to change if I'm going to manage to attend the college at ungodly hours like 9:00 am.

I'm off sick pro tem, and like Jon, keep odd hours because it suits me and allows me to hook up with some mudcat friends but once, when I was suffering through a very bad bout of insomnia I posted a thread here and got many helpful suggestions......if you are suffering I suggest you search on insomnia......it was back in January I think.

What's really weird is calling Hawaii from Korea, and having to remember that although Hawaii is 5 hrs later than Korea, it's the day before. (I kept trying to call an office on Mon, and it was still Sun in Hawaii.)

Air force crew members routinely set their watches to GMT and mentally add or subtract an appropriate number of hours for wherever they are. Don't ask them "what time is it" - they'll ask "where."

I'm unemployed at the moment, and my sleep schedule keeps creeping later and later. Unfortunately, right before bed I usually decide to make sure I haven't missed anything on Mudcat, so I'm on for an our later than when I decided to pack it in.

Morty is staying with me this weekend, I'll tell you if it works or not - we may end up sharing the back bedroom (the guest room where the computer resides) whilst the two blokes share Phoebe's bed......

Insomnia is caused by Mudcat, you post something, and someone answers rapidly, you have to say thank you or stick your fourpence in, or you get involved in a Hearme, and before you know it, it's 3.00am, your eyeballs are like pissholes in the snow and your child is screaming for its breakfast!!

LTS - it is really 11.45pm, I still have another 2 hours to go before I can get to bed......

Jeri,the International Date Line can mess a lot of things up.When I was in the Navy, my ship crossed it on our way to Aukland NZ. We went to bed on Fri. nite and woke up Sun. morn. to pull into port.
Guess what? All the bars were closed on Sun. What kind of liberty was this? Luckily we found our way to the NZ Navy base and the Enlisted Mens Club and had a great piss-up.

Guest-

I have no regularly established sleep patterns. Haven't had any for a long time. If I could figure out how to do it, I would. Consequently, you can find my posts at just about any time of the day or night.

You should experiment the great satisfaction of having a new year's eve in Oz.You pick up the phone,call someone Europe or so,amd go"Hello...I'm calling from year 2000..."

Often I was tempted to post a good morning thread to wish a good day to all mudcatters 'left behind' somewhere who still had to finish the previous day. And since this is not my native timetable,at the end of the day I'm envious of all those ones in the world who are still going through the day and will live more of it...it sounds funny. I used to log on the Mudcat at 8-10 in the night and go on until 4 or even six in the morning...luckily the housecomputer broke down and I can log in for a scarce hour during the day.I'm safe! The mudcat,I think,is terribly insomniac.You sit there and go through it like a dream or anyway something out of your touchable reality...and you can wake up then-and go to sleep!!!

Back to the original question, Mudcat's been keeping me awake for a little while tonight, but now I'm also being kept awake by something else: I decided to burn a copy of my 'Silent Hill' (Playstation game) soundtrack for my cousin, and it's a pain in the ass...

After this, I'll probably go for a drive, pick up my car at my dad's house, and go home and feed my cats. I'll be in bed by... 4 or 5 am? Ugh...

I can't sleep, I can't sleep,
I've got bloody insomnia.
Eyes like sand pits, open wide,
In the middle of the night.
Counted sheep, drank warm milk,
Walked the dog, read the Bible,
Wrote a book, played at cards,
And it's still 3.00 a.m..

I can't sleep, I can't sleep,
Through that bone shaking snoring,
Like an earthquake, in my bed,
In the middle of the night.
Tried to stop, tried to turn,
Suffocate or to drown him,
Still he snores, like a drain,
And it's still 3.00 a.m..

I can't sleep, I can't sleep,
So I sit here and ponder,
Why is rain wet? Is the grill off?
Did my washing all get done?
Count more sheep, have a gin,
Doze off, just for a second…..
Damned alarm, in my ear!
Now it's bloody 8.00 a.m..!

Insomnia is actually worsened, over time, by Mudcatting. The rapid clicking/flickering fool the brain into thinking it's actually getting REM sleep and the brain chemistry suffers acccordingly. Physiologically, Mudcat's speed and design make it function like a drug.

Fillet of a fenny snake,        
In the cauldron boil and bake;        
Eye of newt and toe of frog,        
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,        
Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting,        
Lizard's leg and owlet's wing,        
For a charm of powerful trouble,        
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.        
Scale of dragon, tooth of wolf,        
Witches' mummy, maw and gulf        
Of the ravin'd salt-sea shark,        
Root of hemlock digg'd i' the dark,        
Liver of blaspheming Jew,        
Gall of goat, and slips of yew        
Silver'd in the moon's eclipse,        
Nose of Turk and Tartar's lips,        
Finger of birth-strangled babe        
Ditch-deliver'd by a drab,        
Make the gruel thick and slab:        
Cool it with a baboon's blood,        
Then the charm is firm and good.

I've been assured it works..

No time to right thru the thread (cries of 'intolerable','disgraceful','red card,ref')

We could sort the time thing by including in postings what the time is on our clock/watch.

Methods of getting to sleep that have worked for me.

1. Do a 3-digit by 3-digit multiplication in my head; keep restarting when I lose track till I lose cosciousness.

2. Overdo keeping myself awake while lying in bed with eyes shut till etc.

3. Remind myself that there have been literally 1000s of nights when I've slept, so not to worry.


With apologies if I'm on the wrong track here.

Freda,

Aside from the suggestions so far for getting to sleep, may I suuggest (No flags and saluting here, oh no) a counsellor or therapist. Sleeplessness can be to do with matter unresolved that one continues to chew on, or at least the unconscious does. Just a thought, from a therapist obviously.

My son and I have found that Bach Flowers remedies have helped us sleep more soundly.

Just recently we both suddenly started having a lot of trouble sleeping, and a doctor acquaintance mentioned melatonin. I Googled it and found that it occurs naturally in bananas. Since Cyclone Larry had sent the price of bananas from less than a dollar a kilo to $14 a kilo we had stopped eating them. Now we are spending more on bananas than on petrol but at least we are sleeping at night again.

Years ago, while going through a rough patch, I visited a medical doctor for relaxation therapy. If my 'stories' don't work for me, to this day I do what the doctor taught me: I visualise a puffy cloud on which I nestle. I can 'pack' the cloud under my knees or my neck or wherever I need more support. It is peaceful and comfy and I am weightless. If I'm curious I can sit up and take a look at the silent blue sky and then cuddle down again...

after three nights of interrupted sleep, i slept well and then had the most wonderful dream. I dreamt that I was walking through a medieval village with a friend (catter hilda fish) and she took me into the village square. Erected across the green lawn was a series of huge, cube and rectangular shaped sculptures like buildings, with pipes and metal scultpted pieces linking them.

As we looked about these huge wooden sculptures, the wind was blowing through the wood and making it vibrate and hum. It created a huge natural instrument - a cross between a scuplture, a building and a musical instrument because all the wooden walls and panels were vibrating and humming in different harmonic keys, as the breezes stirred the wood.

I woke up with an amazing sense of gratitude to my brain - it felt like it was generating wonderful healing energy into me, through this dream.

I seem to be up wide awake at 1:42am. It's more a case of too much to do and not enough time in which to do it, and a weekend over which I can do a little extra work. But I'm finished, so I hope I can wind down and get to sleep soon. I have to get up early to walk the dogs (and myself) because after about 8am it will be too hot to walk very far or very briskly. BUT WAIT! I see there are thunderstorms in the region. We're a bit off the path right now, but maybe they'll expand to our area. How nice--the idea of sleeping to the sound of rain!

(Too bad I washed the dogs today--it'll probably be a horrible muddy mess out back after this drought we've been having, and the dogs will be in the middle of it).

WTF am I doing up at this ungodly hour?!? (3:10 a.m. New Hampshuh time.) Tom's sleeping quietly -- I've been awake since around 1 when I got up for a pee and been awake since. Came to grips with the fact that I'm probably not going to work today so got up to make baking powder biscuits to settle my tum.

Thursday nights are often problematic (but not THIS problematic!) because I don't get home from work until around 9 p.m. and then have to quickly slow down enough to sleep not long after I get home to be up at 6 a.m. to return to work. (Ain't retail grand?)

Hope I'm not getting what the store manager of the other US Vision optical shop in the mall (different host store) has -- I relieved her on Tuesday so she could go home sick. (She looked as bad as she said she felt.) We're short handed this weekend and Sunday (when I work alone) is not only the start of our semi-annual contact lens stock-up sale, but our host store's "Friends & Family" sale.

Sigh.

The biscuits are good...

For sixty years I have averaged about four hours sleep per night, and I've simply gone along with that.

When I was young (yes, I was once) I used to sit up until 2.00am working on the most intricate and difficult parts of my model ships. The rigging etc.

Now I do the editing of photos and music till the same hour, with regular forays into Mudcat.

When I go to bed, I'm asleep in seconds, and dead to the world until 6.00am, when I wake, and then drift in and out until my wife wakes, about seven. Then we both get up and attack the day.

With that level of sleep you don't have time for insomnia.

Hey Kendall. Here is a true tale that may amuse you. Several years ago I worked in a cigar shop. One night two young men with very short haircuts came in. "Where can we find some fuckin' pussy?" One asked."I fuckin' need to get laid." Said another. I told those charming jarheads where to go without batting an eyelid. "You guys should go to The Underground, all kinds of hot chicks there." Of course,what I didn't tell them was that The Underground was the gayest bar in town. They didn't come back to the shop and kill me,so I like to think they discovered their feminine side.

Good thread revival. I too, have made the observation that many here appear to be nightowls. Guilty! I love retirement: when I am sleepy I sleep and when not, I don't. And I have always been a night owl, from early childhood. I come alive around eight or nine PM so it's usually the Swing Shift but at times it's all night. I get my best ideas, write, draw, paint, play the guitar (quietly) as "she" is NOT an owl. Maybe it's something that creative people have in common. It would make a good poll question.

Framus, the Spanish Colonies, formerly known as Alto California! But not a Californio, though I am a second generation native.

Rye whisky, rye whisky, rye whisky I cry.
If I don't get rye whisky I surely will die.

Well I eat when I'm hungry, drink when I'm dry
And if I get thirsty I'll lay down and die.

Just to fill in around your quote.

All the interesting things happen after dark. Most of the world goes missing at that time so there are fewer people to keep track of and you generally know each other. Poets, lovers, burglars, bums, suicidal folks, police and prostitutes, ambulance drivers and real high fliers. Lot's of material for anyone's inspiration, adventure, danger and the more than casual observation. That big orange thing shows everything and nothing. Those faces are all planned in advance but the night reveals all for those who have eyes to see. The secret desires of the heart eschew the light it seems, whether good or evil, they are all vulnerable and thus stay hidden from the day time crowds. Who knew that the CEO could dance like a maniac, that the little wallflower could bloom so widely in the moonlight? I'll take the night.

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.

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?"

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.

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!

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.

I really don't want to still be awake at sunrise. That is when I need to be up. *sigh*

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.
