    Hi Aimee ?

    Have you been able to get checked out by your doctor? That would be the best place to start. They can run tests. I'd recommend getting a full check up. I'm sure everything's fine, you might just be low in something that they can check via blood test.

      Sorry about jumping in on your chat here but I just wanted to say that I feel for you. And well I don't know about the medicine thing but I do know that medicine only suppressed the symptoms for a while. over time it will wear off and you will either need to up the dosage or find another way. And with upping the dosage it can reach a point where it is unhealthy and you become dependent on the medicine and you begin to need it like any other drug.

      Just know that. Call your doctor, figure it out with them. They may give you a different prescription or a offer some different way of doing it. Just I would not recommend getting in the loop of using a medicine for a while then it stops working so you switch to a different one or up the dosage then that stops working and repeat, it doesn't seem like the best thing in the world. Just saying.

      I hope you get better soon, and I am saying soon for a very good reason, because you WILL get better the question is when and how, but it will happen and we all will be here for you along the way. Have a great day. You are not alone.

    Maxine is right, don't fight the feelings they will only get worse. Acknowledge that you have them and any thoughts that are running through your mind. Are you on medication or are you dealing with this through your own techniques?

    I've always heard if you lay in bed awake...to get up.

    I know it is hard to "get up" because we keep hoping to fall asleep...but really I never do when I feel the way you did tonight...and that just makes all the anxiety worse.

    The other night I was fighting with my b/f...and then I was all hyper in bed...so I couldn't sleep...I was tossing and turning...and then I decided to get up and get the computer...it only took about 1/2 hour to calm down the anxiety...then I gave laying down another shot...and I was better...not great...but better...and a little more tired.

    Maybe try it next time and of course..follow all the other advice...and see a Dr.

      Get up when you can't sellp and do something else for awhile. I either come here, or get something light to eat. Alter awhile, I go to sleep again. Sometimes, I have to do that a couple of times. At least I get some sleep...whatever works, Honey.

      A therapist didn't help me any since I have been an insomniac for many years, but they might do you a lot of good. Think about trying that.

      If you are sleeping a lot right now, I would say your mind and body need the sleep. Keep a log of how many hours you sleep every night.

      How old are you, Peter? Young people need a lot of sleep.

      Yea, I can do that suggestion NOW..but I think I need to find a job...and I can't be up all night and then have to go to work...I know I am not sleeping because of my financial situation.

      i have been waiting 2 years to hear from the Federal Government to see if they will pay me disability (that I paid into for over 25 years).....and I worry about my mortgage.

      I am totally freaking out....all the time...I can not live in the moment AT ALL.

      Oh my dear Missy, so much for you to handle. Have you considered sleepimg pills? Your doctor should be in on this problem. I believe you said, about 9 days ago, that you had an appointment next week. That would have been this past week. What did your doctor say at that appointment?

      How nice for you to remember....yes, I went to the Dr. and she agreed to give me a sleeping pill (she was concerned because of alcohol problems)...but the insurance company won't cover it because it is expensive.

      So she is filling out paperwork this week to convince them that I need this pill...and her office said that possibly by this Wed. I will have it...or they will find something else to prescribe me.

      Its H*LL...BUT...I did get approved for benefits a couple days after I wrote on this post...which is a HUGE relief.

      I Just found 5-htp pills...they help you sleep..but I'm afraid to take them..because last time I took them I was on Citalopram and I started puking my brains out....

      Anyway..thank you cia for your reply.
