I have not slept really good for the last 5 years, in 2002, I was diagnosed with OCD, Bipolar, depression, panic attacks, anxiety, etc... just fell apart. But last June, I lost my daddy, about 2 weeks after the funeral, I woke up one night(which has happened before, due to my cycles of bipolar and OCD combined) and have not got much sleep since then. I do not have trouble falling asleep, I just can't stay asleep, when I wake up, I have to get out of the bed and do something,I go to therapy every 2 weeks, tried alot of different methods, nothing works, I have tried alot of pills, they would make me really sleepy BUT still woke up and had to get out of bed, I have tried making myself just lay there in hopes that I would just fall right back to sleep, that only makes it worse, my brain goes in to overlaod with thinking. I am physically and mentally exhausted, I am extremely tired ALL the time, I also have migraines and this has been the trigger for alot of them. I just don't know what to do anymore, I just know that something has got to give, I need some good sleep really bad, I have also been feeling depressed a little, common I suppose. Just really needed to talk to somebody. My children are 21, 18, and 14,so at least I don't have small children who constantly need care, but I still feel like they and my husband are so tired of me being so tired all the time. I don't work, I so sometimes take a ahort nap during the day, was scared to for a while, afraid it might not let me sleep AT ALL that night, didn't make a difference though, I just kinda take it when I can, 10 min. here and 10 min. there, I am just worn out with it.I would just like someones input on my situation, is there something else I might could do? Thanks for listening! Lori
