I'm really working myself up over lack of sleep and nightmares the past two nights. I am VERY sensitive to sleep and if my patterns get interrupted I get hypomanic and just plain weird. Right now my thoughts are racing about what if I have more nightmares tonight what if I wake up every 20 minutes or so like I did last night. All I can think of to do is take ambien or risperdal. Then if I do take my ambien maybe that will make the nightmares worse. Alternative is to stay up all night as I am sort of afraid to go to sleep due to the nightmares too not to mention wide awake right now and for the forseeable hours to come. Does anyone have any advice or input to give? My thoughts are racing and I can't quite calm myself down. I am going to try the relaxing exercises my therapist taught me and see if that helps but I am so hyped up right now mentally I don't know if it will help.
