You Are an Insomniac

It’s likely that this quiz confirms what you already know – you have insomnia.

It’s difficult for you to sleep well through the night, and it’s having a bad effect on your life.

You should probably seek treatment for your insomnia … or at least try some home remedies.

Consider giving up caffeine and sticking to a sleep schedule. Everyone deserves a full night of rest.

Seriously folks…  tell me something I didn’t know.
Sorry about all the blogthing quizes lately.  Some of them strike me as funny (yes, I have a weird sense of humor).  And it kinda lets people know I’m still alive.
Things are looking up in terms of the move.  I’m a bit bummed I’m not going to have much of a break between jobs.  Maybe as little as the weekend.  But I’ll know more when I talk to both my new and old boss tomorrow.

Rough Night

It’s 1:15 AM.  I’m awake.  I’m not happy with this little fact.  I’m stressed with trying to get my visa transfer taken care of, moving and all the other crap that goes along with changing jobs.  I got the guilt trip from my grandmother the other day when I called to wish her happy birthday.  I get she wants me to come home.  She doesn’t get I don’t want to.

It’s stuffy in here and my stupid air conditioner isn’t working.  My toilet has been plugged up for 3 days and calls to the landlord go unanswered.  I’m pissed at the world, in general.

I’ve been tapering down off the Zoloft on my docs reccomendation because it’s giving me RLS like symptoms at night.  I can feel the dark clouds closing in along with the anxiety.  He’s not a psychiatrist so he doesn’t want to prescribe something else.  Hell, he didn’t want to prescribe Zoloft in the first place.  He had only ever used Prozac.  Trust me, Prozac and me didn’t get along.  I refuse to even try it again.  I’d rather not repeat the insanity of weeks with little to no sleep culminating in a trip to the loony bin.

Is it even worth trying to get into a psychiatrist here?  I’m moving in 3 weeks.  I feel like banging my head against the wall.  For the first time in quite a long time, I’ve been having SI urges.  That’s why I’m here typing this.  It’s been too long for me to go back to that particular coping mechanism.

I feel like a whiny little brat right now.  So I guess I’ll just stick my head under the shower to cool off.  Hopefully it won’t set up a trigger cascade.

*thinks positive thoughts*

Then I’ll go grab a kitty and get her to snuggle for a while.
