Delve into the mind of madness

My new health insurance company in their divine wisdom has deemed it so that I am no longer in need of a prescription for a benign sleep aid. Maybe they will one day look back at this decision as a mistake when they have to pay for my liver transplant because I can't even attempt to try and go to sleep with all the pain I am in with out at a minimum of 2 bottles of wine or two 6 packs of beer to even attempt to try and go to sleep. See I feel better than ever, nothing like a drunk tirade, hissy fit to get all Zen like and calm and feel as one with the universe, NOT. This is day 6 with little or no sleep since Friday night. I sit here at my desk with a drink in one hand and a can of bedbug killer in the other. And yes this is an inappropriate over share deal with it lol. The only bright side sort of is my girl and I received a gift of 2 tickets 6th row orchestra center stage to see the The Rage and Rapture Tour of Garbage and Blondie. The sad part is in my head I am still 18 years old but I'm at a concert where the star attraction is Debbie Harry of the band Blondie. She was my generation's Marilyn Monroe. And I didn't know any male teenager that didn't have a picture or poster of her for their spank bank. Watching all those geriatrics dancing in the aisles was depressing though lol. Who need therapy or Xanax when you can just air out your ***t online

Damn man, that's rough. Almost as if God said "Hmmm no. The pain and the lack of medicine is not enough to prevent you from sleeping. I shall also give you bedbugs!"

Sleep deprivation is one of the worst things, my specialist said. I suffer from a form of insomnia myself. And in Holland sleep medication is not covered by healthcare. So on this one I can imagine a bit how it feels.
I do use a strong melatonine now which works a bit. Have to buy it myself ofcourse though.
If I did not have that, I would need half a bottle of raki every night.

And Debbie Harry: according to my parents I had a huge crush on her when I was about 5-6 years old. They told me I was watching the tv with big eyes and mouth wide open when she was on

Stay away from medication! This is not helping you, just easing up symptoms. Try to figure out what could be the root cause for your insomnia. For the start I might give some hints what occasionally causes sleep disorder in my case: coffee, when consumed in the evening, using TV, smartphone etc (everything that has a high brightness) in the evening prior to sleeping, eating late (try to eat the last meal before 6 pm, energy rich drinks also count, like beer, wine, juice...)
From my experience eating a lot late in the evening causes a guaranteed night awake, but there are many more reasons of course. Try to figure it out for yourself, try meditation, change your eating habits and what you eat. Try sleeping in a different place and see if there's a difference.
Medication won't solve your problem, the only thing that happens is you get other problems from the side effects.
Oh, did I mention: in case you are consuming other medication too, check the manual for side effects! This might sound dumb, but do it. I witnessed several cases in my family where medication was a root cause of major health problems - and the doctor didn't get the clue it might come from medication side effects.

Now I do agree with what King says. Ofcourse.

But one thing though, from personal experience: when you are too deep into the insomnia, there is no time for this anymore. What you first need is atleast a short period of real sleep before you can actually focus on working it out this way.
You should, but you need to be able to function to try this. In my opinion, the non-addictive sleep meds can help here when taken for a short while and not every night(take one night, skip the next). Stay clear of the addictive sleepmeds or you'll never sleep without it anymore.

The last 2 nights I was able to finally sleep. Eventually exhaustion takes over and you will sleep. I have only had short periods of insomnia throughout the my life and that was due to stress. Pain was the factor that prevents be from getting a good nights rest on a regular basis. I have not had a day with out pain to some degree in 23 years it is only now that I am old has it become a problem. And needless to say I imagine anyone even without pain will have a hard time sleeping with at least 1 eye open if they have been invaded by bedbugs. I have a high tolerance to most medications that are supposed to help you sleep. In fact most of these drugs have the opposite effect on me. I take a pain killer or Valium or a sleeping pill and I and wired. The same goes for alcohol it actually keeps me awake unless I drink myself to sleep which it not kind to my liver or a solution.

I keep my fingers crossed that you get rid of your bedbugs quickly.

I think physical activity can also help to get sleep, and be it just a long walk in the park.

Maybe you need a time out, get out of your daily life and try fixing the problem. I know of health cures which can be ordered by the doctor. This lasts a few weeks where you are in some institution.
Health insurance should cover this.

@ Ghost: And you can do nothing about this pain? I don't mean painkillers but cure.

I have a total of 10 bad discs 4 lower 3 thoracic and 3 in my neck & 2 bad knees. I have yet to find a doctor to fix all of these problems. The knees at some point I will have replaced but as long as I can still walk I will not have surgery on my back it's too much to fix.
