Help me please...

Do any of you know good ways to fall asleep? I'm a horrible insomniac and my body really really doesn't like it. Because after about 3 days w/o sleep I start to get schizophrenic like symptoms like seeing and hearing things... My mind works very oddly under a certain amount of stress and well this'll be my third night up help if you can plz. As much as I don't like to sleep I value my sanity the most over all.

yeah.. that's just not healthy.
I'm a raging insomniac too, but there are some herbal teas that help; mixing equal parts chamomile, kava-kava, catnip and hops works well.

I've tried the chamomile before doesn't really work that well... whats the kava-kava and as for the catnip I don't have any around the house and my town has a problem selling hops to ppl under 21 stupid drinking laws...

Pop in the original Fantasia, that was always my secret weapon when I used to babysit crazy children as a teenager. Should knock you out by the Sugarplum Fairy segment, if not sooner. :)

2004-01-16 07:23:19 ET

that might work too.

2004-01-16 07:23:39 ET

Lmao that might work except I like some of the things in Fantasia and am likely to stay awake to watch em especially the last one. I might try some different teas tonight but dang not sleeping is getting old... and i seem to be smelling pot but i cant be because i dont own any right now... gah im goin nuts already

2004-01-16 07:23:59 ET

have you tried valerian?
it smells like shit but it works.

2004-01-16 07:27:00 ET

I've haven't heard of it what kind of herb is it? I'm pretty much outta ideas ive tried all the herbs in my books not workin...

2004-01-16 07:27:52 ET

So will mixing different herbs make a drink more potent? because I really haven't tried making muli herb tea before

yeah, listen to sybarite, valerian will knock you out, and catnip might work- they usually have catnip plants at garden shops. passionflower works well too, though sometimes it can be hard to find.

2004-01-16 08:14:47 ET

yeah, listen to me.. I rock. ;)

passionflower can cause a bit of stomach upset with some people, so be careful of that.. and if you have any allergies to ragweed, chamomile will make them worse, so..yeah.

if you arent trying to keep it natural or whatever, take a benadryl or two.

2004-01-16 10:36:00 ET
