Hi, and happy thanksgiving to all.
I am going to try every suggestion on here because in the last 3 months I have been having a awful time sleeping. I have had insomnia a long time, but for a while it was under control, I was only not sleeping maybe once for twice a week. For the last 3 months it has been brutal. I have tried to think what I could be stressed about, because sometimes that had alot to do with it.
Now it seems I am stressed because I dont know why I am stressed. Its making me crazy, if I dont get some sleep soon, I am afraid I will just drop. So I am going to try all the things, like the sheets, reading, anything, I take valium already but it appears my tolerance is getting to high, they are just not working anymore, if I keep taking more and more I do not want to overdose accidently, but they are 5mg and I am taking 5 at a time. I wont take anymore than that. I actually stopped taking them at all as they werent working. I did it slowly so I did not have withdrawal symtoms from benzos, othey are as bad a narcotic withdrawals.
So, again I am going to give anything I can a try, cause I cant do this much more.
Ok, thats enough for now, I know one thing, I am not alone.
