Oh how I know that feeling... When I haven't slept.. someone could ask me my NAME and I wouldn't be able to answer them.
I'm not one to give advice as I am not good at coping with anxiety , or flashbacks etc... but maybe if you tried getting through the next five minutes... just five minutes at a time.
I know when all hell broke loose with my children's flashbacks and panic attacks, nighmares, I would have to take it.. one day at a time, sometimes one hour at a time , and somedays, one minute at a time.!
Hang in there Sarah... the day WILL end , and you will go home and have a good nights sleep tonite.
I'll tell you a little story that might make you laugh. When I was little and I'd done something I wasn't supposed to do,my mother had a habit of making me sit in front of the clock for 5 minutes or 10 minutes... however long the "crime" warranted.
I would sit there, and sit there, and sit there... and say ''Can I go now... My mom would say is your 5 minutes up... I would say, no it isn't.... well, then you'd better stay right there young lady!"
What she didn't tell me, and what I didn't realize until I was much older... is that she had STOPPED the clock.! While I sat waiting for the darn thing to move, mom would get at least half an hour of peace and quiet. !!! LOL Smart woman my mother.!
Love and prayers to you dear Sarah.
