I never have. Granted, it's worked out. Most of my best ideas have been insomnia fueled. It's just strange to realize that it's not everyone's reality. I took Ambien for a while, but that stuff is crazy. Besides, I take amphetamines instead of coffee in the morning (perscribed, I'm super ADHD) so it just didn't seem like the greatest idea to use amphetamines all day and then knock myself out with Ambien. I stopped taking it when I woke up outside. Haha. I'd also rather treat impulse, distractibility and adhd to have a manageable life than sleep.
For now, I've just been falling asleep around 1 or 2 am and then waking up around 4 ish for a bit then sleeping again. Sometimes I get great ideas at night, but I've been writing them down instead of trying to continue fleshing out the idea so I can look at it when I wake up and not stay up thinking about it. Idk.
If you've struggled with insomnia or mania or anything that keeps you awake, how you cope? Does anything help? Do you use melatonin or chamomile or anything stronger? Do you just lie awake? If you've never had insomnia or sleep issues what is that like? Do you have a regular nightly routine or something? Do you stop watching TV, reading, or looking at your phone after a certain time? Etc. Thanks.
