Oh dear Dizzi..........sleep deprivation was a form of torture you need to get some more advice from the GP or nurse to help you.

It must be months since you slept well :-(

Have you tried going to the chemist and discussing your medication with the pharmacist ?

Our local one will go over things like medication, blood pressure and blood sugar in a private room in the shop and gives excellent advice.

Dizzi....Try to keep smiling although it's hard.....I was on tranquilisers for about 5 years and one day I wrote this because it was happening so often...
AFTERNOON TIREDNESS...
My body craves for rest,,
My mind calls for sleep,,
But neither can I give...
Tiredness and boredom come
Causing my eyes to close...Gently I slip into sleep,,
Subconciously aware of my surroundings..
A sudden sound,,and then,,
Shocked I am awakened
Hoping noone has seen..
An unknown force carries me on..
Still an hour,,no,,two
Before my needs are satisfied..
I must keep my senses working...
Must stay alert lest I get caught//
Errors occur,,erase,,again I start,,
Must stop to refresh myself..
My body craves for rest,,
My mind calls for sleep,,
Though neither can I give...
Regards and love...LES...

Dizzi.. have you tried the sleep tapes? They worked for OH to a degree but being hyper not for long enough unfortunately.

Sleep deprivation is awful I know :-(

Dizzi, I can sympathize with you as I have times when I feel exhausted in my body but my mind doesn't want to switch off. I have found that laying down and reading a book does eventually relax me so I nod off...... give it a try and I really hope it works to break the no-sleep-cycle and gets you back into a normal sleep pattern once again.

I also find deep breathing/meditation calming and relaxing.... Good luck Dizzi, you have enough to cope with health wise and need to sleep to get well.

Hi Dizzi,sorry you are having trouble sleeping ,last year i went through a long period of not sleeping and a friend said put a vase of fresh picked lavender by your bed,not in water,,well first night i went to sleep and had the best nights kip in months,thought it might be physcological but from then on no problems,i renew it when fresh blooms come into season.

hope this helps
best wishes
