    How do you guys handle this sort of crap? I feel like a sloth right now. I want to curl up and sleep but my vision goes white, blurry and my heart hurts and then my brain gets really angry with me and kicks inside of my head for me to stay awake. I really can't miss work and then the sun is so bright, it's so obnoxious, like an annoying esfj sprinkling it's unwanted love all over me : ( How do I handle this? Lol.

    No, I can't have coffee btw, gives me panic attacks. Can't drink caffeine either. I am sooooooooooo fuuuuucucuccuckckced -_-
    I've had this problem before. It usually happens when I don't exercise. I actually tend to have a lot of physical and psychological issues from lack of exercise though, it's weird. So exercise is my solution to everything. I sleep very well, like a log when I've been exercising.

    Also, I've heard very good things about the melatonin supplement. It doesn't help you fall asleep, but it helps you stay asleep. (I've seen it in some of my patients and people that I know.)

    I work out every other day. I'm going to say this one more time- I can't take pills, I have tried and they make me sick. Thank you.

    Yeah, I noticed that. I mentioned melatonin because it's a supplement, could have less of an effect on your system. Maybe not, though.

    (Edit: I just read the response to the Valerian post/realized you were also referring to supplements- never mind!)

    2 hours? I feel like I'm going to die if I only have 2 hours sleep.

    Which is why I just woke up from a 6 hour nap. My dreams consisted of Jesus and other weird crap, like riding on a huge cat like creature
    and people trying to kill me and a demon chasing me.

    It's not the healthiest option but what having a small amount of sugary sweets? Not alot but just enough to give you enough of a lift to make it through the work day without feeling like a zombie.

    Ah, yes that is a good idea but I would need to eat something with it. Usually, eggs and then something sugary like something sour.

    I also can't have caffeine for a number of reasons (not good for a college student's life!). For trying to stay energized as much as possible with little sleep, I second the sugar and cold suggestions. Someone once suggested to me going into a short shower with as cold of water as you can stand it and that woke her up good. I've been too afraid to try it, but it probably helps. One thing that works for me too, although I don't know if you could have it with your GERD, is onions and peppers, especially jalapenos; they get your blood pumping. I eat pure jalapenos at night if I need to pull an all-nighter.
