The subject pretty much sums it up. I can never sleep. First off, I can't sleep in my bed. It's not even the bed I shared with TC (my boyfriend). But I can't sleep in it. I sleep my the floor. And it takes me forever to get to sleep. At first I would suffer and cry myself to sleep, but now I stay awake, watching movies, playing on the computer untill I am so exhausted, I don't realize that I am falling alseep. This way I don't think about how I will never lay next to the man I though I was going to grow old with. I have been thinking about taking sleeping pills, but I want to talk to my doctor about it first. I know that other people most have this problem, so if any of you have any ideas or solutions please that me know. I don't usually go to bed time like 4 in the morning and then with my depression once I actaully fall alseep I can sleep for hours. I sleep for like 15 hours once. But the most sleep I get is 5 hours if I'm lucky! Which isn't good cuase I work in retail, where I'm always on my feet and you have to be every friendly with people. And since I don't get much sleep, when I do get a chance to sleep in, I sleep all day, so then I don't get to sleep till like 6 in the morning in turn I only get like 3 hours of sleep. It's horrible. So please anything ideas are welcomed!!!

What would YOU do if you won the lottery? If I won I would find a program or place that treats the WHOLE body, not just with chemicals or talk therapy, to find a mental health regimen that would FINALLY work for me. I would work to get off of my meds altogether. (Years and years of taking meds that don't help have left me frustrated and fairly angry.) Treatment for mental illness is not for the...
