Combs Can Empathise With Jackson

SEAN COMBS can understand why MICHAEL JACKSON turned to powerful anaesthetics in his battle with insomnia - because the sleep condition can drive sufferers "crazy".
The pop superstar passed away last year (09) following an overdose of Propofol, a drug which is used to put surgery patients to sleep.
Combs recently revealed he is also an insomniac and admits he empathises with the late superstar's condition because of his own long running problems dozing off.
He says, "Anybody who's ever had insomnia, you're not thinking he (Jackson) was crazy. You understand that when you're not able to close your eyelids, you're on the brink of losing your mind...
"If I got more sleep, I'd be a better person, a healthier person. I'd be able to see a bit clearer. It's a problem and I'm looking to get help."
And Combs is adamant more should be done to help insomniacs because so many develop prescription drug problems.
He adds, "You start taking melatonin, then you'll have Ambien and there are many other people who've graduated - not myself - to other things. It's a big problem. There needs to be medical attention paid to this disease, because the world would be a better place if more people got better sleep."

I myself battle insomnia it is a horrible feeling I'm always tired and feel like sh*t. but I would never take something so powerful like that and his doctor should have been aware of his conditions and figured out a way for him to calm down an relax so he could fall asleep safely NOT KILL HIM what an a**hole, sorry, there are other ways to go to sleep and if you ever had an operation the anestetic he was given does NOT give you good sleep I've had at least 20 operations and never did I wake up and feel refreshed from that crap how STUPID!!!! OMG If any jerk goes to see that Doctor of Death shame on you.....Michael Jackson was a victim/ RIP MJ we L.O.V.E you & miss you

I also take ambien at night, a low dose but I only get 4 hours if that maybe 5 on a good night. Your thoughts keep running threw your mind and you can't sleep. I know exactly how Michael felt. Your so tired the next day and cannot function. And it just goes on and on. Melatonin just leaves you drowsy the next day and you feel awful. At least I do. Ambien helps for a while. Getting a higher dose is frightening because you feel like you've become addicted. But you need to sleep. You are right Diddy. More should be done. Thanks for that. I am not the only one.

the problemwith the sleepless nights if thefalse god worhship of buddish I find that when i sleep at time my sleep would be interupted by people who worship the idol.I am a chistian, but i find this use to be a problem for me and it did lead to abuse,in order to continue to sleep, then i tried sleep apea and insomia, sleep ades, this lead to addiction. but it was the blood of Jesus as my higher power, the God who is the healer, and healing is in his blood that removes, addiction, Matt.28;18,19 "power" and "authority" this is known as the Great commission. this is my advice for those who are powerless, in their efforts, to illimenate hopless addiction problems and sleep apena,Diddy try Jesus

I thank God that I work from home when ever I feel like it. It can be 3:00AM & I can't sleep, I'll get up & get to work. This way I can take a nap during the day if I need to. I definately understand what Michael was going through. I probably would have taken the propofol too. There's so much talk of him faking his death, I'm wondering is it possible that he is still alive.
