I feel like my life is just a wreck right now.
I'm a 21 year old university student. Last December the stress of uni, caffeine and relationship problems got to me, for some reason for a single night i was terrified of the hypnic jerks as i was falling asleep which meant i had a single sleepless night.
Out of panic i had booked train tickets home. the next day, for 3 nights slept next to my girlfriend and slept like a baby.
after that i came back to uni and essentially got just a whole week of minimal sleep like an hour or so broken with very vivid dreams every night.
came back home and was fine for 2 weeks sleeping next to my gf, then i realised i then had a problem of sleeping alone as any time she wasn't around i couldnt sleep. i went to my gp and she prescribed me Citalopram and now im about a week into it and while it reduced my vivid dreams, im still having some terrible insomnia. I'm not even stressed or anxious when i go to bed anymore just can't seem to stay asleep and wake up and get stuck in this half awake half asleep state (i think).
I'm very tired, have massive bags under my eyes, has this happened to anyone and does it go away?
didn't help i had ocd and was terrified of sfi which i now know is stupid but its frustrating i used to sleep really well! the diazepam I was also given doesn't really help either
