    I find drinking a labored and unnecessary fix for this situation. I just pop pills....:D

    I was forced to take a benadryl last night, and still only slept about 4 hours. Hope tonight goes better

    I know a lot of people are against it, but I've found that the consumption of cannabis can help me sleep more than Benadryl or melatonin ever could. Posting this was probably pretty stupid and broke a forum rule, so if you're a mod and that's true, my apologies.

    I find that some combination of Bourbon & Ambien works best for me.

    FWIW, I need it to keep the physical pain away at night. The VA has given me all sorts of goodies, but none that work as well as alcohol and Ambien to keep physical pain and bad dreams at bay.

    It isn't every night, but it's far more than I'd like. And yeah, the anticipation prior to game day doesn't help either. :rocker:

    I remember last year after the Super Bowl I drank for about 4-5 days straight, no exaggeration. At one point I was doing the irish jig to Rock and a Hard Place by The Rolling Stones.

    Now I just don't take the games as seriously anymore. I want the Pats to win, but if by some chance they lose tomorrow or in the SB, I'll be ok especially that in the event that we do lose it won't be at the hands of a Manning or the Giants.

    I'm cautiously optimistic about tomorrow, however. I think the running game plays a big part. We didn't have that element last year.

    I suffer from mild manic-depression. Just so happens, on a week when I was being tested on a new med that was supposed to improve things, it had the reverse effect on me, couple that with the heartbreaking loss and hatred for the Giants/all the trash talking they were doing leading up to the game, and I had a temporary nervous breakdown.

    Never again. I learned sports are to be enjoyed, but I mean as spectators we have no impact on the outcome of the game. Wasn't at all happy when the Celtics lost to the Heat and Lebron won a title, but hey, I'm not the one playing and unlike most sports towns, I can say that I've seen all 4 major sports win a championship the past decade.

    Amen to that. If we're lucky enough to get by the Ravens tomorrow, the Falcons don't scare me at all and the 49ers showed all their cards in the first half of the game earlier this year. We also have the most complete team we've had since 2004 (I say 2004 and not 2007 because of the running game and overall team.)

    Not saying it would be easy, but I am saying that we saw their A plus effort already and know what they're capable of. Kind of like when we beat the Giants in the regular season in 07 and they adjusted in the SB.

    I will be drinking myself to sleep by dawn.. hopefully sleep all day to avoid the pre game anxiety.

    I take this wayyyyyyy too personally.

    Why are a lot of people against it? Latest polls show >50% support for legalization. But if it makes you feel better, call it "aromatherapy", that's what my vaporizer says.

    But nothing I take or do allows me to sleep well the night before a game, something compounded by the game starting (in this case) at 6.30 AM and often 1.30 or 4.30 AM. Sleep is overrated anyway.

    For these big playoff games, there's always a part of me that wishes I could take one of them Michael Jackson sleeping pills and wake up when it's over.

    In reality I actually tend to drinking water during the big games; must be a getting-older thing.

    So many epiphanies for me lately ... Like, the low from losing far outweighs the high from winning -- especially in the playoffs. Why do we do this? :confused:

    Geez, don't feel so bad anymore. For me, its the losses. Forget sleep if the Patriots lose a game (regular season), followed by about three days of being pissed off. I remember one Sunday, the inlaws were in town and my wife had made a Sunday dinnner which was served at game time. Sorry, can't eat anything while game is on (although, beer is ok).
