    OOPs, reread what I wrote there, when I say washed down with vodka, I mean A glass, one single, not a bucket of, I may be desperate to sleep but not totally stupid.

    Ok this is going to be a crazy suggestion, but if you can get some medical marijuana it works wonders for pain and getting a good sound sleep.

    LOL wouldn't even know how to start looking, *mumbles* unlike the old days where I knew people who knew people

    GH my friend, do be careful with booze+tylenol...it's a terrible double whammy to your liver. Advil (Ibuprofen) is a better choice.

    Don't worry Dimsun, none of this is a long term solution, I just feel so much better today having two reasonable blocks of sleep, it makes such a difference.

    *SIGH* the vodka is finished anyway, and won't buy any more for a while, so no hard liquor here, maybe a glass or two of red wine, I think I have a bottle or two lurking somewhere.

    The long term solution is to get a couple of good nights in, which makes me believe that it is possible, then everything will fall into place.

    Sometimes we just get into a bad sleep pattern and it's just hard to break. I'm finally sleeping 6 hrs straight now, for the first month post surg I only slept 4 hrs at a time. I would nap 3x a day-I never really slept until the pain level went down enough.

    Here's a thought, ever try meditation? I find guided mediation (one of the forms) is helpful for me :).

    I like the meditation idea, can make all sorts of annoyances disappear maybe. I have never really given it a go, but I will try

    Lots of good info on the web. My personal routine is that I visualize myself on a blazing hot beach, lying in warm sand. I start at my toes and work my way up the body, naming parts and telling them to relax. "Toes relax, it's been a long day it's time to go to sleep. Soles relax, it's been a long day..." you get the idea. As I name each part I envision it sinking into the sand a little more and the sun warming and relaxing it. I work my way up the body and I usually fall asleep before I get to my neck. It takes practice, but the repetition calms the right side of the brain and the imagery/feelings occupy the left.

    You should know that valerian root is also hard on the liver. The combo of tylenol+alcohol+valerian sounds like trouble waiting to happen. Please be careful. Of course, ibuprofen could rip up your stomach with large doses and/or long term use, so there's just no good solution here.

    I thought about suggesting the medical marijuana, but it's not so easy to get. I guess unless you happen to live in Colorado or Washington state. I don't think it's as hard on the body as tylenol and alcohol though.
