I am going through alot of crap right now and am majorly depressed so I am wondering if depression and stress etc. can cause it? if anyone has it pm me or just reply in the thread if you have any insight to assist me. Thanks, Aric
I've been this way for some time now.

Re: What can cause insomnia?

Some notes about no caffiene- it'll take near a few days for your body to flush it (water soluble) and in doing so you'll likely have withdrawal symptoms whihc include insomnia. Caffeine really needs to be an on or off thing. Periodic usage will lead to a normal cycle of withdrawal. Even after I sneak a few cans of Dr Pepper I'll have huge side-effects later that week.

A number of years ago some friends got me on an anti-depresssant called Effexor-XR. On top of being a vile chemical to put into your body it had sleep and rest-depriving side-effects of its own with what seemed to be a daily withdrawal cycle.

+1 on exercise and no caffeine. I used to have some trouble sleeping for years, but 6 months ago I started quite a heavy exercise routine and no caffeine after 6 pm routine. I've been going through some **** lately too, but overall I've slept better than I have in years. And at least to me nothing clears bad **** out of your mind like a good dose of exercise (cardio and gym works equally well, IMHO), combine that with physical exhaustion that comes along and you should be able to sleep much better.

Re: What can cause insomnia?

Causes-Stress, anxiety, and depression.

Treatment-No caffine, no alcohol, light meal for dinner, don't eat too late.
Try meditation or yoga
I went through a similar problem with depression/stress etc, I find meditation awesome and I'm not into that spiritual **** but it works.
Excersize, eat well, healthy body = healthy mind
If you have come to the conclusion that you need help, seek it, I can't begin to tell you how worthwhile it is, it will free you from your demons.
There is no shame in asking for help, it takes bravery that only a real man is capable of
Good luck Steg

I too can say that I have trouble sleeping. I can't attribute mine all to stress though. I used to watch my father stay awake all hours of the night. I thought he had lost his mind. At 4:00am he would be asleep in the recliner with the T.V. on from a movie he was watching.

Now I'm beginning to do similar things. I don't watch T.V. though. I find myself digging through posts on the .org.

Try to relax bro. I know that things are tough right now. I can't honestly say that I have all the answers, I don't. I can say though that I have faith.

I dont have sole custody. I watch them 630am-6 every weekday and she watches them nites and weekends. I take them sometimes nites (like tonight) and on weekends when I am not working. I am working 6 days a week now, 3 days its only 4 hours though to make ends meet since she left.

Re: What can cause insomnia?

At 22, I was the sole guardian of my daughter, who (luckily) was 3 years old. It can be done, so don't lose hope.

And yeah, I was lonely too for a little while, but I got through it - close friends helped, and parents chipped in a little bit. Life happens, man.

Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming.
