I haven't slept in three days...
Now it's almost 7 am and I still can't sleep.
I've tried everything... I moved my bed tonight so that my head faces north to "allign myself with the magnetic polarity of the earth" yes I am this lame.
I drank a glass of hot milk, I put a fan by my bed for white noise, I listened to what was supposed to be a cd of tranquility with whales, it all it did was annoy me. I unplugged my illuminated alarm clock and blocked off all light sources in my room, I've tried relaxation techniques, the wiggling your toes crap, the deep breathing crap, the visualizing a flame and making it as detailed as possible crap, the blanking your mind crap, and no matter what I do, I just can not fall asleep. What the hell is wrong with me? I quit paxil cold turkey five days ago, but I was only on it for two months, I don't know how long this will last... my eyes hurt, my head hurts, my body hurts, my brain hurts... sleep would cure it all... too bad I CAN'T SLEEP. I've always had some trouble sleeping... but this is insane... God I feel like dying just so I can rest... please help me.
