Oh. My god.

I hate Spring. I absolutely friggin' hate it with a fiery passion. I went to bed at 10 pm and laid there wide awake until...look at the time, and I'm still awake! I have to be out of the house by 6:30, and I was *supposed* to have a date tonight, but I look like death warmed over, I'm sure. I had to write her an email asking her if she could meet me Sunday. I'm going to be zombie apocalypse all day tomorrow. Today.

Every Spring. Chronic insomnia. I hate, hate, hate Spring!

May I suggest spending a few winters in Toronto, or better still Regina or Winnipeg? You will have a whole new healthy relationship with spring.

I lived four years in Iowa and two in Nebraska and one in Montreal. I get why you northern types like Spring. But I pretty much lie awake through the entire season. So I loathe it.

Spring isn't my good season either. I woke up with some bad allergy symptoms a few days ago, and I too tend not to sleep well in spring. But it's better now than it was before I moved here.

Wish I knew something that would help you.

I've been having Spring insomnia since at least 2003, so I had it both here and in SF. I don't remember it being so bad last Spring, and it did seem to pop back up after I went back on medication, which I was off last year.

I think I should go to my doctor and talk to her about prescription sleep medication and a possible alternative anxiety medication to the one I'm taking that apparently contributes to the insomnia. Because the non-prescription sleep meds are doing anything for me.

I'm the opposite. I love seeing my gardens come back to life.

I suspect you don't want them to take over your backyard in a jungle-way and attract knats, though.

Actually my backward (well, the back line of my property - 30' by 100') is a jungle. But I just ignore it.

My gardens in the front are a different matter. Although, in the evening they attract plenty of gnats and I get many bites.
