Awake and sleep

I couldn’t sleep for 36 hours and now I’ve slept about 6 hours and thinking I need to sleep more. This is so messed up. I’m not sure what to do. Tomorrow morning I have to go to the pharmacy but I’m not sure I’ll be able to wake up. This effing disease is killing me.

I’m taking Doxepin to help me sleep. Melatonin too.

Sorry @FatMama. You got a benzo and melatonin? That forces me to sleep occasionally, but I haven’t had issues recently.

6 hours is still better than nothing

@FatMama try to remain calm, even though you are awake you can still rest your body by relaxing it so you can struggle thru the day / night. This what I have had to do many many times to survive.

Thanks @ZmaGal and @Winterblues and @sweldon001.
Unfortunately melatonin doesn’t work for me. I tried gravol as well. I don’t have benzos because I abuse them. I’m sure I’ll be able to sleep at some point again. For now I’ll watch some tv. Chopped will be on soon.

Have you tried warm hot cocoa / Milk it might relax you some ?
If not try tea with hint of honey in it …

Doxepin is an old school antidepressant. It acts as a tranquilizer but I don’t feel stoned from it.
