    Lunesta (zopiclone)

    I may have developed pseudoinsomnia. My sleep is half-awake sleep and in 90-minutes-each fragments. It started one evening, when I tried to incorporate an unincorporable thought into sleep. That thought is now perpetually incorporating on its own; it's like a 24/7, autonomous background process. …
