Please help me sleep again!

I aggravated a lower back injury on June 3rd. This injury caused pretty bad nerve pain down my right leg that totally disrupted my sleep. Even though I am feeling much better now physically, my normal sleep has not returned. Note: I have read a bunch of AskMes about insomnia but I thought I would get some fresh responses here.

...the cumulative hangover would literally kill me.

Basically, I've been drinking up to two thirds a bottle of liquor (or equivalent) a night for the past two years. Decided to stop, didn't sleep for five days save nodding off where I had terrific nightmares and just thrashed a lot before waking up again. Now I'm not sure what to do. Looking for advice/anecdotes. I'm in kind of a unique place. [Warning] gory details if you open the can. [more inside]

I'm burning up, thanks for asking.

In the past few months I've gone from healthy, active 49 year old woman to sweat-dripping, unable-to-sleep menopausal woman. I need help with hot flashes that are happening up to 20 times daily, each lasting anywhere from one to ten minutes, and the night sweats that are waking me up pretty much hourly with a damp-to-soaking-wet bed. They're uncomfortable, they're gross, I stink to high heaven, and I need help managing them. What menopause hacks can you share? [more inside]

Has anyone been prescribed Topamax purely as a sleep aid?

My pdoc prescribed me Topamax as a sleep aid. I do not have epilepsy or migraines, which Topamax is usually prescribed for. I have searched Crazymeds and a couple other drugs forums and no-one has ever mentioned it being prescribed purely as a sleep aid. Oh, and it doesn't even work. [more inside]

How can I decide on a college major when I have NO interest?

How am I suppose to decide on a major when I have no real hobbies, interest, or passions for anything. Other than sleep or a good book I don't really do anything. I'm not the greatest writer and you can't support a family with sleep so what so I do to find something I truly enjoy. Something that actually will make me look forward to the day while I'm wasting away in minimum wage jobs while I decide on a major; After 60 semester hours at my school you have no choice.
