"...All I Wanna Do is Fuckin' Sleep"

Well, you guys...things have been quite a bit crazy lately (quite literally...) seems if you go over 25 days without any sleep, you go a bit crazy.   Yep, 25 whole days and nights...not one little minute of sleep.  Not kidding.

Hence the lack of blog posts and photo uploads.


Because of this I missed The annual The Revolutioners Thanksgiving Eve show at Stickyz.

If you know me even the slightest bit you know that I was not a happy lady at all...I never miss them...I had always joked the only reason I would ever not go to a show of their's would be because I was dead.  

It was getting bad, so I decided to check myself into a mental hospital to see if they could do anything to help.  Turns out that was a total waste of time, all they did was keep me for a week and gave me Ambien.

Ambien does nothing for me; except make me have really awful hallucinations.  They had to start giving me Geodon (medicine for Schizophrenia) because I was starting to hear voices, but that medicine made things worse, you know how you can have closed captioning turned on your TV? Well they were on at the hospital and instead of thinking my thoughts, I would see them appear as the closed captioning across the TV screen.

Scared the hell out of me.

While I was in the hospital I was phoneless, so I had no idea until my Dad came to visit that my beloved second home; Juanita's had decided to shut it's doors for good after 30 awesome years.  

"Bath Salts" by Highly Suspect, describes very accurately (basically word for word) how I have been feeling for the last month or so, since the insomnia started back up before Thanksgiving.

  I say started back up, because in 2010 I went a full 10 days with no sleep, seems I have a new record now.

I am finally starting to sleep a little here and there at night.  Sleep about an hour then stay awake for four or five hours before falling asleep for another 30 minutes, just to wake up again and basically say fuck it, guess I'll just be awake for the day now.  At this point it is normally about 4 or 5 in the morning.  

Those who know me well know that I am in no way whatsoever a morning person, as a teenager I would sleep all day until about 4 or 5 in the afternoon. wake up to eat and then go back to bed until the next morning.  Truth.  

Before the insomnia hit me hard again a few weeks ago, I would generally wake up around 10:30 or noon-ish.

I have no idea what is causing this, but I wish it would go away.

I have tried basically everything and honestly the only thing that seems to help in even the smallest way is if I drink a cup of Sleepytime Green Tea before trying to go to bed.

Back to the whole Juanita's situation...

Highly Suspect was the last "big" band to ever play Juanita's'. If you read the last post I wrote, you know they played with my friends The Revolutioners.

Loads of fun at that show, I'll tell you about it soon, yes...I know I say that all the time and then forget to write, but this show was too good to not to tell you guys about.
