Hey guys, got up this morning and saw i got an email from this website and remembered i posted here 2 + years ago
Heres my update since then,
I still am not able to sleep to where i am rejuvenated, but i found ways around it.
decided to write to give someone hope that your life is not over, dont give up, STOP thinking NEGATIVE!, your will change the way your MIND is if you keep thinking NEGATIVE stuff about your situation!
Good news is didnt die lol i read a few recent post of people saying they are going to die from not sleeping for 2 week lol( which was something i said 2 years ago) i havent sleep in 2 years and i did not die. It is ANXIETY + TRAUMA of not sleeping or whatever event led you to not sleeping that makes it worse. STOP GOOGLING AND TRY TO RELAX. Dont let your MIND control you. Your MIND plays a MAJOR part in all of this. Read books about the POWER OF THE MIND and how things effect it. I talk like this because it took me a while to realize things. In my situation i spend alot of money at the doctors all they did was throw pills at me which i know was BS because the pharmaceutical companies just love making money off people's misery( not saying you should get help from doctors).I know it seems hard but try to focus on something else and with TIME your ANXIETY and MIND will slowly calm down and hopefully you can get back to who you were.
Yes am am still not naturally sleeping but that because am a full time student and that comes with being busy and continuously learning. I am fully confident that when i graduate i will be able to relax and evenly sleep.
I refused to take benzos because it's benzos ( all man made drug mess you up more, your body gets used to it)( and they had 0 effect on me, only made me jumpy) ( this is just my opinion) instead i found out that ZMA( zinc magnesium b6) worked for me. It is not be best solution but my options was either stay home depressed, suicidal about not sleeping and being fatigued all day or Go back to university and finish up school! i choose school. I think going back to school helped me take my MIND of how i couldnt sleep in a way but not 100%.
I must say it has not been an easy journey when i first got to university in 2017( 6 months after initially not being able to sleep) , due to lack to sleep and foggy head( not being able to think properly) i failed some classes but i still preserved through it. I am not saying there were no hard days where i was exhausted and felt hopeless because i couldnt sleep but i didnt let it break me down instead it molded me and made me stronger because if i am able to accomplish all this while i am in the state of mind imagine the type of person i will be when i get myself back together.
The only thing that i noticed from my lack of sleep was my muscle mass reduced, i dont get the foggy brain feeling like i used to. I am able to walk and function. But hey everyone is different what worked for me may not work for you. i will say when you dont sleep and have that foggy brain feeling it is hard for you to read/ take some advise and apply it to your situation because when you try something/someone suggestion and it doesnt work it only makes you more agitated and when you try another thing and it still doesn't work, you then start applying it not working to what you may have GOOGLED sayin "oh those things didnt work i must have this disease" NO you dont!! Hope i helped someone is some way i will update again when i get i chance. Just know you are not alone.
