I've had increasing severe insomnia since the 1990s. Dunno why it started.
I've tried, Booze, Downers, Ambion, Belsorma, Zanax, More Booze CBD oil, Weed, even hypnotism.
Generally things sort of worked until they didn't.
Weed was a total waste of money and time I spent nearly a thousand dollars just getting a card and then more than half again getting the product.
I have learned that it does help people sleep who can't sleep because they are in pain. But is pain is not your issue then fuhgetaboutit.
One thing seemed a Magic Bullet. I was dating a girl who was a stroking Massage therapist. One evening she wanted to show me what she did so she set up her folding table and draped a towell over me and went to work. ZONK~!!!! I was out like she had a magic switch.
Anyway I'm on a new path.
I went to a hypnotherapist He was a total con artist. They all are. Hypnotism is this foolishness about getting you in a relaxes state so much that you are open to suggestion. Well that's a pile of road apples.
BUT it gave me an idea.
I was able to sort of zone out. Not much but sort of. So I was open to ideas on the topic.
My lovely missus and I have been sick as dying dogs this last week. That Viral Bronchitis that is sweeping up from S America I guess.
Anyway She'd collapse on the bed and I'd pass out on the couch with the telly way down low.
I noticed that I sort of almost go to sleep with the idiot box making mumbling noises.
So I went looking for something I might listen to at night. I found "Sounds of the Sea" It's nice there's surf waves rain birds whales yadda yadda BUT unlike al the idiotic Yoga and Hypnosis recordings I have tried ( and I've tried plenty) there is nothing demanding your attention like a voice telling to engage.
I plugged into my smartphone with a bluetooth head set and set it top play and laid down.
My mind rambled a bit and then I was gone.
Of course a couple hours later I was shot straight up startled because the darn phone decided that it was bored playing the same ocean sounds and went looking for other sounds and was playing really loud DoorBells.
Doorbells. They are not even in he same Folder~!!!!! There's nothing else in that folder but the ocean music.
I'll try using my kindle. There's no door bells in there ( I hope) .
when I win power ball I'm getting my own private Masseuse. Her job will be to knock me out at night.
I'm gonna win, I can feel it in my bones.
