Insomniacs Unite Group

This is a group for anyone who struggles with insomnia, whether it be a once in a great while thing, or a near daily occurrence; whether it be because of chronic pain or illness, or if it's an inability to "turn off your brain" at night. Hopefully we can all share thoughts, ideas, helpful tips, etc., that may help a fellow insomniac get a few blissful hours of shut-eye.

Is there a chat room? I need to be able to "talk" when I can't sleep. Somehow the loneliness in the wee hrs of the night is very troublesome. Would help to know that I'm not alone in my wakefullness.
