Hi I'm 31 and have suffered insomnia for the last few years. I have accepted I have depression/anxiety and need help as I can't cope with how bad I feel and how such simple things are the biggest struggle even getting dressed seems like the hardest thing to do. I have no choice though I am a single parent have a demanding 48 hour a week job and have a horse. Some people may look at it that I have taken on too much but I can't see a way of changing my life and in some ways I wouldn't want to. I just need to sleep and something to help balance me out and have a positive outlook on life.
I've been on various medication over the years but nothing has worked for me. I've just stopped taking sertraline as I have bigger problems sleeping on it, bad heart palpitations my eye keeps twitching and felt so sick I couldn't eat. I struggle eating at the best of times! Also I haven't been diagnosed but wonder if I have IBS or certain food intolerance as feel different after certain foods.
Can anyone offer guidance or what to avoid or similar problems.
Doctor thinks I have ME and or fibromialga as I ache constantly and get worn out easily.
Also I fractured my spine 2 years ago so have back pains and bad head injury almost 2 years ago resulting in severe concussion which I have trouble remembering certain things and signal between my eyes and head are often a bit slow to catch up.
I know it sounds a lot or a bit exaggerating but wanted to be open about all the different things I have going on daily.
Like I say any help at all what ever it may be I would appreciate.
