I’ve dealt with deep depression, intense panic attacks, visual/auditory/tactile hallucinations and delusions but insomnia takes the cake. Sleep use to be an escape from all that. After a few days of not sleeping you just have nothing left to fight with.
Last night I didn’t get much sleep. I tried sleeping with only 1 sleep med instead of all 3 of them and only slept for about 3-4 hours. Once 7-8 pm rolls around tonight I’ll feel like total sh*t, I always do.
I wish my brain would be able to sleep on its own. Medicated sleeps just are not as refreshing, although they are better than not sleeping at all.
