Day4
Umm yeah, absolutely not one wink of sleep last night.!! Yeah, not one... I predicted it, I knew it was coming, even prepared for it in a sense, and it didn't work... Popped a couple of attivan around 1:30 a.m. and I still couldn't sleep.... It was almost like my body was grasping at straws, hoping anything that was put into was an opiate.... I really think the attivan gave me somewhat of a buzz and actually kept me awake... I dunno the whole chemistry part of it, at this point, not really intersted either... Really I'm just interested at looking at the back of my eyes for a few hours, but I don't see that happening.... Back isn't so achy today, maybe someone did pull the sledgehammer out of my back...
The restless legs not as bad either, they just hurt now, prolly from having a constant charlie horse in them for two days.Ha, this will get better, there's got to be a silver lining...

yes you will find that silver lining...sleep will come...it just takes time.  have you ever heard about melatonin?  it s a natural hormone our bodies make to create sleep...it helped me that first week...you can buy them at any grocery/drug store.  keep on fighting...you will find it s so worth it...good luck...maria

Sleep was for sure my biggest issue. I have horrible insomnia to begin with, so withdrawling through sleep deprevation was tough. Towards the end I literally went 3 days without sleep. I wanted to smash my head on concrete to knock myself out at one point.  Maybe try sleep meditation? There is a light at the end of the tunnel stay strong!!!
