The wide awake club.. or, why are you still up?

The origins of the imperative, "know thyself", are lost in the sands of time, but the age-old examination of human consciousness continues here.

Ooh, I’ll be up to see the dawn.. it’s been a while.

My unasked for recommendations are to eat a couple of cookies with a small glass of milk right before you lay down then right before that read 20 min. worth of Harry Potter’s book series. No late suppers after 6 pm to curb acid reflux. The jaw pain might be from teeth clenching/grinding due to the upsetting dreams and general stress but the small sweet treat and positive read should help you generate happier, contented ideas to mull over as you fall asleep. Can’t hurt to try my unasked for recommendation.

It's fun seeing all the new kids on the block talking about the collapse of the United States and western civilization when I've been literally talking about it for decades, they look so cute, especially the ones that want you to buy their books.

I’m not sure that milk and cookies are a good idea to have just before lying down, for someone with acid reflux.. they are more likely to aggravate rather than dissipate, the problem.

Better to sip on water, a ginger tea, or a detox tea, nightly.. I highly recommend the detox tea option, as it’s what Physicians recommend for the ailment, and it worked for me beautifully.. though the two other options work too, but less well, and are less permanent solutions. I am now a life-long detoxer, for the rest of my life.. coz it works.

I read yesterday, that the number one thing to avoid when you have acid reflux or heartburn is to avoid becoming constipated, of which a good cleansing detox tea will help with, and immediately. I used to drink the stuff years ago, and never had GI problems, and I don’t know why I stopped #-o but now yea, I’m back on the stuff.. for life.

Two cookies and a small glass of milk are to be eaten when there hasn’t been a late, acidic, somewhat gluttonous meal after 6 pm which was what the recommendation called for, eat supper before 6 pm. Neither milk nor cookies eaten in moderation causes acid reflux, only upsetting for the lactose intolerant. Also people relax more and fall asleep quicker when they have something in their stomach, more than only liquids. If you like tea and a couple cookies or half a peanut butter sandwich or half that crazy sandwich you make, Phone. Whatever, a little something solid and sweet.

Sure, but it depends how bad the symptom is.

I’m sure an Individual will do what they think best,
in relation to how bad/often their symptom is occurring.

I have a marvelous way to work the symptoms, try a drastic change of you're life , and I mean drastic, to reverse the eating habit by consuming more at night, dieting during the day.

And of course sleeping during waking hours and live for the night-life.

Symptoms will melt away like butter. I've tried it and it does a soul good.

cmorning.can'tmorning.can't sleep thinking about the below Darwin forum, I guess intelligence is hard not to repress in the night, it may work wonders to help the genetically progression overcome any sense of appearent weakness of fitting survival genetic deficits.

If you do that, you might get yourself what they call a "sleep debt". A sleep debt occurs when you stay up late enough to burn the extra energy reserves you've been accumulating all day. Once you fall asleep, your body naturally starts working to replenish those energy reserves. At some point, that work has to stop. So it goes until your energy reserves are replenished and you awake feeling refreshed. Sleep debt is basically just a fancy way of saying that you've fallen behind in sleep. If you aren't meeting your sleep requirement and you can't seem to make it up, then you'll feel tired and groggy the next day. You may also find yourself dealing with some other side effects like feeling irritable and have trouble paying attention and staying focused.

I sleep plenty.. which is probably the cause of the insomniacal episode.

It has rectified itself, since I tweaked a few biological factors, to rebalance sleep v awake times.

Funnily enough, whenever I make an entry in this thread, I tend to fall asleep or cease caring that I am awake.. if I remain awake. A cathartic act, it seems.. mind over matter, of which I’m a proponent and practitioner of.

Pretty much same with me, and my sleeplessness has to do with the recent passing of my. priest .
I worried abd prayed fir him , expecting for him to survive.

God Bless Him.
