Sleep sleep sleep. All I want to do is sleep it must be the depression and anxiety. If I am sleeping I am not worrying/panicking. I look forward to the weekends but don't go out or invite people over. I would like to have a better social life fear I am becoming a hermit. Maybe I should hibernate?? ! Sigh depression is not a nice thing

    I wish I could sleep.  My depression makes it difficult for me to get rest.  Always have headaches from lack of sleep.

      Hi Anne I think I am the other way round I would sleep all day if I could. Have you tried kalms? I get panicky at dinner time so I take a diazepam and go to bed about 9pm this seems to be working better. X

      Got up as cannot sleep and on my laptop at 12.30am.  When I go backj to bed I will only sleep for aboyt 4 hours.  Well I am old and understand older people need less sleep.  I don't have to get up for workj, but I don't lie in.  Usually up at 8am even though I have been lying awake for houyrs and hours.

      Tried a lot of things, but nothing helps.  I am not on any prescribed medication.  Only take supplements.  I have been taking Kalms for months, and still take them before bed, and during day.  I keep hoping they will help.  At least my depression is a lot better since I have been on supplements.  I won't take sleeping pills or diazipam.  Done so in past but hate the feeling next day.

      Hi Anne hope your troubles will melt away soon. At least you are getting up I think that's half the struggle with depression getting out of bed you should be proud about that. I take diazepam when I really need to I don't like taking it it knocks me out and fluoxetine daily. Let me know your progress. Lovely to chat xx

      I take calms and have now found something that helps with sleep bought in chemist called Quiet Night.  Makes me feel hungover next day, but I have slept better lately.  Won't take them every night.

    I feel exactly the same, the last week it's got worse for me. I know it's easier to give advice than it is to take it but if you feel like you want a better social life reach out to your mates and put yourself in them situations. Things will get better xx
