I just want to sleep like "normal" people do. Granted right now I'm doing so bad cuz I had a horrible reaction to an antidepressant that I'm off of now, but I'm still experiencing symptoms of withdrawal with insomnia being at the top. I've struggled with insomnia for as long as I can remember. As a child I was late for school all the time cuz I was up so late the night before, but once I'm asleep it's so difficult to get out of bed. I've had 2 sleep studies done years back and the dr said nothing was wrong with me. He said that I'm just on a different time zone and if I moved to California I'd be just fine. I laughed and he said I'm serious. I obviously am not moving to California. I envy the people who lay in bed and fall asleep so quickly. I've always felt that if I could get on a good sleeping schedule that my other problems(depression, anxiety, & ocd) wouldn't be as bad. As usual I feel helpless. I tried drinking tonight as I do sometimes, but to no avail. Sometimes it helps and sometimes it doesn't. I'm just fed up and needed to vent.
