Yes, the Subbies do take a hella long time to leave the system. I remember doing a heroin rattle, and I had a couple sleepless nights and felt a _lot_ better the third day.
But, it is since Friday that I've been having sleepless nights. And, last night, I totally flipped the **** out and started hitting myself in the chest and head. Punching the walls and shouting '****' over and over again because I just wanted to sleep.
I ended up taking Nytol, and those pills actually worked.
So, last night, I _did_ take a pill. But, just one pill. Today, I'm ready to go without it again like I did yesterday, but at least today I know I've got some Nytol to get off to sleep with taking Nytol.
God, I sound like a sleeping pill advert.
That said, my partner in crime is dropping lots and gettings lots of good sleep? So, I really don't understand why she can sleep and I cannot?
