I may have discussed this before, but for those who don't know, I suffer from chronic insomnia. Put basically this means that I average around 4 hours of sleep a night, and don't get to sleep before around 3/4. I normally just end up slinging a dvd on, or putting an audiobook on, until i nod off. It's really very wearing - I know that I won't be asleep for at least another 3 hours now, and will wake up tired in the morning. I don't even have lie ins on the weekend, as there's no way I can sleep. Doctors can't really do anything, their basic diagnosis is normally: 'well, you'll sleep when you can'. Can't take sleeping pills as the problem is too chronic for that (I'd have to take them every night, and that would risk clinical addiction to them). Alas, i don't even have abitrary on here to have bizarre late night chats with.
