Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I don't know whether I'm feeling nervous over joining the navy, or just really suffering from lack of sleep, since New Years I've only been getting around 4 hours a night sleep, it's 4am and I'm still awake.

    Anyone else suffering from this? As stupid as it sounds, It's making me quite anxious because I need sleep !!

  8. You say you need sleep but is this making you feel unwell? I'm sure your body would tell you if you weren't getting enough sleep. I usually only get between 4 to 5 hours a night, though am good at cat-napping when the chance arises,and once in a while seem to manage a ten hourer, but that's usually assisted by cider and/or red wine.
     
  9. Have you told your mummy about this?
     
  10. If you suffer from insomnia join as a WE, they do courses in sleeping.

  13. So thats where I went wrong joining as a stoker.

    Serious head on, as you know I have suffered chronic insomnia for years, second recovery from my illness seems on track as I got a good 6 hrs last night, up for a lag then a couple more, win.
     

  14. Correct me if I am wrong but is this not a forum for witty banter and the serious stuff, it is neither a crèche or a GP's surgery.
     
  15. Depends. ..........................
     
  16. Is it not? Oh my mistake, thanks for letting me in on the rules.
     
  17. We have rules? :pale: :shock:
     
  18. Some of us don't :thefinger:
     
  19. I had rules once, but after 14 hours a day compulsory rack time I forgot what they were being a greeny really opened my eyes for short periods of time. Remember the moto if in doubt rack out:razz:
     
  20. Hahaha, I'll keep that in mind.
