    Depending on how it's presented, yes.

    No worries. I managed about 5 hours sleep for each weekday last week - but then, I had no choice because work is work. Plus it helps (work, that is), after I get home I'm mentally exhausted (even though I still manage to screw it up by not sleeping till around 02:00)... on the weekends however it gets bad because I don't do much and end up staying awake until I force myself to sleep on the Sunday night - kinda like right now, I should probably try and sleep but it's not gonna happen till at least a couple more hours. I've set my alarm to 08:00 for tomorrow.

    In emergencies, I do have benzodiazepines to temporarily fix my sleeping pattern in order to get into a routine.

    How about you?
    Aw that sucks. The worst feeling when you all you want to do is sleep but you can't! Forcing yourself never works for me though. I think I have to be shattered to the point of collapsing before I can get a good decent dreamless sleep of 4/5 hours.

    How long has it been? Sorry if you've answered that before. Do the benzos work?

    Thank you so much!! And if you enjoy it please do share it with anyone else who might be interested. Just looking to expand it really it is in its early stages.
    I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to look last night as something came up but hopefully tonight! I will Defo pass it around

    I had been watching Most Haunted- It's silly and the earlier series were slightly scary, now it's a comedy and very funny. The last episode the couple who do it had a domestic and started arguing about responsibilities such as the dishwasher. Some books fell of a very disorganised book room.- I started discussing the Roman Legion walking through the Room and looked it up on google. I went onto a blog about Ghosts, the first post I read had a pretty creepy story and one that kinda was very disturbing. I thought I was going to have a nightmare and so I told myself I wasn't going to have one. Woke up and didn't have one.
    True Story.

    The point I'm making is, I've learn that I can influence my dreams and control them to some extent. It just requires practice and trial and error.

    By force, I mean medically. Otherwise, it's as you say, I'd have to be up for several days before my brain shuts down for me and I collapse.

    About 8 years maybe? That's okay, I can't even remember what answer I gave you last time lol, if any.

    Oh god, yes... definitely - benzos work magnificently. It was definitely a life changer. Even sweeter than opiate/opioid painkillers. It's also great for people who rely on alcohol to sleep - which a lot of people do since a prescription isn't exactly needed, but benzos do it far better and at the same time reduce any cravings for a drink. Neither are solutions nevermind cures, but whatever, it works.
