I like my pdoc, too. I have his pager, and he always calls back. He's not at all warm and fuzzy, but he has genuine concern, you know? But here's what he says about my insomnia: "The day you stop caring how much you sleep is the day your insomnia will disappear."

There's truth to that, I know. On the nights that I say, "OK, I slept well for a week; it's okay to have trouble tonight," I do fine. And when I wake up at 3:30 a.m. and say, "OK, I've slept 6 hours. I'll be fine if I don't fall asleep," I fall asleep.

But he has never told me how to stop caring about it when it's only 2:00, and I have exactly one hour to fall back to sleep or take a sleeping pill. Or when it's 11:00, and I still haven't fallen asleep.
