    • I’ve tried every kind of sleep agent.  Nothing makes me drowsy.  I can fall asleep ok these past few weeks but my biggest bugaboo is getting straight hours of sleep—like 6 would be the holy grail for me.  I was working off 6 hours of sleep for the past 5 years or so anyways.  I would routinely go to bed at 11/11:30 and wake up st 6-7 every morning.  So it was my habit at that point.  I haven’t needed 8 hours in a very long time.  But March 4th, out of nowhere, I can no longer fall asleep, or sleep more than 4 hours at a time. For example, last night a passed out at 2:30am and then up at 6:30; up for half and hour and then woke up at 10:25 or so.  So two disjointed sleeps of about 3.5 hours each.  And of course bizarre, nonsensical dreams.  
    • Peace, that was a beautiful poem,  My wife who reads a lot and has written lots of poetry enjoyed it too.  Most excellent!!  More please..
    • RBD is often the first warning sign of PD.  Its very rare in healthy adults. It was my first symptom and started nearly 10 years before my diagnosis. Have you tried Trazadone? I took that for nearly a decade and it worked pretty well for sleep.  
    • Hello John Hoefen, I had , no have a fly rod.  They are really hard to tie now, flies that is.  That is great that you still go fishing.  Ha, I jumped at fly fishing but you probably catch salmon trolling the Pacific Northwest.  Maybe even up into Britsh Columbia.
