Insomnia continues. I'd guess I've had about ten hours sleep in the last three days, and for well over twenty-four hours now I've felt - I don't know how to describe it. Like I drank too much coffee, or like I'm a few minutes away from throwing up. That shivery ants-under-your-skin feeling. It just won't go away and it's keeping me awake more than anything else. I thought initially that it was caused by the NyQuil I took a couple nights ago, but surely that's long since out of my system.

I'm kinda freaked out by it at this point, though. I've never before had insomnia this bad, so I haven't got any prior experience. Is this feeling normal? Is something wrong? It's keeping me awake more than anything else at this point, and I just don't know what to do. I'm going to hit the student health center on campus tomorrow to see if they can help me out with anything. I don't know how much longer I can even function if I don't get some real sleep soon.

In the meantime, though, reassurances from insomniacs on the flist that I'm not dying or something would be much appreciated. I'm gonna go back to bed, but I expect I'll be checking my e-mail again before long.

Thanks to everyone who replied to my post earlier! I did, in fact, manage to fall asleep when I went back to bed, and the crawling-ants sensation seems to be pretty much gone now. I really appreciate how many people kindly assured me that I wasn't dying - I didn't really think I was, but I was anxious and (naturally) not thinking clearly.

I have a class to get to now, even though I couldn't do any of the reading for it yesterday, and I'm still going to stop at the student health center to see if I can get any assistance there, bcause I know this ain't over yet. I managed to sleep Monday night, too, after all, and look how that worked out.

So in conclusion, you guys are awesome and I love you.
