  1. Howdy all. Its 2:30 am this side of the world and I can't sleep. I have (self diagnosed) acute bronchitis and subsequently can't stop coughing long enough to actually fall asleep. So, I'm wondering whether anyone can help send me some 40-winks advice. If not, then poke fun of my unfortunate circumstance - someone around here deserves to be having fun... :meh:

  2. I had a bout with bronchitis just last year, so I do know how hard/impossible it is to sleep when you have to cough every few moments. :spit:

    For other times when you can't sleep, try some of these CDs: www.purewhitenoise.com/sound-masking.html

    If you have persistent trouble sleeping, see a doctor.

    DO NOT go the alcohol route. ;)

  3. No good advice. Just taking the opportuntiy to say I slept fine last nite. I am superior to you! Ha!

    (Just let my illusion last for a bit, please)
  4. I hate you. :spit: ................. :bawl: :help:

    5.15 am. The Sun started making an appearance around 15 mins ago. At least I've gotten heaps of Uni notes taken and I don't even go back for another 2 weeks!

  5. Find your significant other and, *ahem*, you know. *wink, wink, nudge, nudge*

    Or, consider the five knuckle shuffle.
  6. One step ahead of ya...neither worked... :(

    Happened to me last night too.

    I felt really hot. I layed in bed for an hour, then went into the living room and watched comedy central till 3:30 am

    I was not about to go to school.
  8. Usually if I can't sleep, I just get up and watch tv. No use laying around doing nothing for hours...might as well enjoy myself.

    Though I'm sure alcohol would work wonders too.

    I think about the implications..."
  14. I love how nobly they all stand there, like there's nothing wrong with the train. I wish I could be that cool.

    melatonin. Herbal stuff, works great. I take it 30 minutes before I want to sleep, and I sleep like a log. And it's good sleep.
