    I have battled Insomnia since I was a teen, inherited it from my mother. I have nightly medication that makes it manageable most of the time. I am approaching the one year anniversary of the worst moment in my life. I knew it would shake me and am planning on taking a vacation and going to the beach at the time. The mind fuck is starting earlier than I anticipated. The next month will be rough but I will make it through the other side.
    We're thinking of you Martin.

Seems to help a bit, for me, to stay busy and rearrange my thoughts on occasion.


    Thank you it is appreciated. I am generally pretty good at handling emotions but the last year has been on another level. Know that I will come out the other end.

    I truly hope you get some rest soon.

    Not related to the time change but I have only slept in about 15 minute increments for the last three nights. I feel like I am approaching complete exhaustion and will collapse. The questions is do I get through work or have to call it a day early. My estimate is that I have had about 4 hours sleep since getting up Friday morning.

    So Whitley Strieber has moved on from Gray Men to...Jesus.

    I actually read a couple of his alien abduction books, but all I could think was "He needs help". I don't think I'm going to read this latest one.

    I just felt like I didn't sleep well last night. Guess I'll be back to normal soon.

    Good luck, hopefully they offer something like mine does. The actual program my credit union is enrolled in is called Dream Points. You can select merchandise, gift cards, Visa Debit cards and Amazon cards. Early on I calculated the price of items I may buy, the Visa Debit cards and the Amazon cards. At that time you got the best value in selecting the Amazon cards. I usually redeem my points a couple of times a year and they send you $100 cards. I actually have $400 in the drawer waiting to be loaded on my Amazon account.

    It works great. I basically use that card for any non cash purchase. Groceries, Gas, restaurants. The reward points just push me to use that card.

    That's a great incentive to use your CC for bill pay. I'm just not a CC guy so had to find a workaround for international purchases.
