Sleepy but Can’t Sleep

Feeling so alone right now. So much anger, frustration.

Sleepy but Can’t Sleep

RE BLOG πŸ”½β¬‡οΈπŸ‘‡πŸ‘Žβ¬

Tell me about it smh πŸ€¦πŸ½β€β™€οΈ… I can stay up for days at a time – still able to drive, cook, blog, run errands… As if we no longer need sleep πŸ‘€πŸ‘€πŸ‘€. I bet if there was a thing in the Guinness book of world records about being able to stay up the longest… I’d win hands down. But, the kicker is… Staying up excessively is actually not good at all and can really do you and your organs some damage frfr. So don’t be overly happy about being able to stay up for days at a time… Instead, seek medical attention ASAP #nokizzy πŸ˜πŸ’―πŸ₯°πŸ˜˜

    1. Thank you for the article, I’ll definitely take a look at it. In regards to trying not to think negative or perhaps not at all before sleep, I suffer with racing thoughts, so it’s a struggle to even show my thoughts down enough, to be able to remember what day of the week it is or whether or not it’s bill time, and I’ve missed the mark smh πŸ€¦πŸ½β€β™€οΈ. However, I just talked to my daughter about CBD products; in the hopes that I can find one that’s going to both, ease my chronic pain, so that I can have a better quality of life and also I Pray that it relaxes my mind enough, so that I can at least think clearly, about what I’m supposed to be doing from one day to the next πŸ˜©πŸ˜΅β€πŸ’«πŸ€ͺ.

  1. Thanks for the reblog. After reading your response, I checked in with my therapist and she recommended I try melatonin and tweaking my bedtime routine. Fingers crossed it works or at least helps me get a few more hours in. Thank you 😊

    1. Yesssss, I’m so happy for you. Prayerfully I’ll get a therapist soon smh πŸ€¦πŸ½β€β™€οΈ… I honestly believe once I do, these fleeting thoughts will get better. Although the ideation can be relentless, when I’m in regular care, a plan is placed on the back burner πŸ€ͺ

    1. It’s the worst, and is affecting my mood, looks, weight, attitude, appetite and overall health and wellbeing. I’ve been prescribed many different sleep aid drugs, but the only 2 that have worked best, to keep me sleep throughout the entire night, had horrible side effects that turned me away from them. Seroquel was good, in the sense that it did as it should, but this overweight residual problem that I’m now dealing with, is directly attributed to that particular medicine smh πŸ€¦πŸ½β€β™€οΈ. Then Trazodone was good as well, but for some odd reason, it gave me horrifying heart palpitations, and I immediately let that one go too 😩

  2. I used to lie down & pretend I was sleeping. Even if my mind wouldn’t be still, I knew that my body had to rest, so I would lie there & think my way into dreaming … sometimes I’d say rosaries, because the repetition of the prayers would help me to relax. But you need rest even if you can’t sleep. Hugs

    1. I’ve started to do that, and I’ve noticed that I’ll eventually fall asleep, simply because I’m in the correct posture for it. I hate the cat naps smh πŸ€¦πŸ½β€β™€οΈ… Some times I find myself woke, when the rest of the world is comfortably sleep and I try my lil (trick the brain) laying down and dosing off, only to pop back up, happy thinking thank God I got some sleep, then check the time and it’s only been minutes 😩… But, nothing beats a failure but a try… I refuse to give up 😍
