    comfort sleep mask :bowdown: walgreens sells them for under $10, i get DEEP ass sleep when i use it. definitely a noticeable difference to nights when i don't use it.

    if you have blackout curtains than you don't need these :fawk:

    I wear earplugs to bed. It still takes me a while to fall asleep but at least noises don't wake me up all night.

    My alarm still wakes me up in the morning playing classical music at a quieter-than-normal-conversation volume through my earplugs.

    God I sleep so light

    My schedule is all fucked up.

    Few days a week, up at 5:30.

    2 days a week, in bed by 3:00-4:00am.

    It makes it virtually impossible to have any consistency in sleep.

    I have blackout curtains in my bedroom.

    But I usually wake up after 2-3 hours, wonder into the living room, and sleep another hour or two on the couch in direct sunlight. lol

    For example, this past weekend due to work I would fall asleep at around 4:00 am. Awaken around noon. Sunday included. Off monday. Now I have to wake up at 5am on Tuesday, and do to that I need to drop ambien. Just dropped 2 ambiens and im seeing shit spin all around me its fucking awesome. My monitor is like a big wave and shit so fucking cool.

    My sleep schedule is all sorts of fucked up.

    4 nights a week I've been getting to bed around 4am and waking up at 11/12. Other 3 days I have to be up around 7 so I have to force myself to get to bed around 2 or so... usually never happens.

    I use benadryl to help get me to sleep, but that shit only does so much.

    wish I got more than 6 hours of sleep. If I didn't have a computer or the internet I'd definitely be in bed an hour+ earlier every night-- even when I'm out all night I come home and sit on the web until I can't keep my eyes open for much longer then I pass out. Fuckin thing sucks.

    Whenever the weather changes I can't sleep for more then 2-3 hours at a time, went to bed at 10:40 and was up at 12, 2:40, 5:20 and 7, alarm is set for 8 ftl. My room is already pretty dark but I'm willing to try about anything.
