What's New in Insomnia

I'm new here!

Hi, my name is LexxLexx77. I'm here because I have PTSD as the result of a traumatic fire incident. It’s been one year and 3 months since the night of the event, but I’m still struggling even though I’ve been attending weekly trauma therapy & regular appointments with my psychiatrist to heal from my trauma. I’m struggling very badly with sleep which is resulting is issues at work due to tardiness since I can’t fall asleep until the early hours of the morning and my prescribed sleep medication is designed to keep me asleep which makes waking up at any time after any amount of sleep extremely difficult and sometimes feels impossible. I’m just so tired in every possible way and I’m ready to be “better”.

Missing out on life? #MajorDepressiveDisorder #Anxiety #PTSD #ChronicFatigueSyndrome #Migraine #Insomnia

Hello everyone! I hope everyone of you are well and taking good care of yourself ❤️Been ages since I last wrote and asking for advice.

Life been hard for me, but I’m keeping it going as I need to. I lost my 2 fur kids in less than a span of a year apart. Bleeding inside, but wearing a mask and telling everyone i am fine.

Started a new job a month ago. Feel quite alright, but cant help having the jitters of my employer will know about my mental health. Trying to look and get myself all well and yeah, i can do the job. As I need the moo-lahs to pay my bills.

Reaching out to you guys as I been having some stupid thoughts after my psychiatrist told me this a few sessions back - “ I am very worried about you. Do you know that you are a very nice person? Whom everyone like to be with you? You are very sweet and always think for others. I really like you.”

My reply was - “wait till you have a fight with me”
His reply was - “ i hope i never ever will get into a fight with you forever”

I got to admit, I have a thing for him. I always hope of being together with him one day after being discharged or I ever ever have the courage to change to another psychiatrist.

My husband doesn’t know about this. But he knows i trust him and listens to him always.

I dont have any feelings for my husband- not because of my psychiatrist. My husband suffers from erectile dysfunction. We dont get initmate for quite a few years. He doesn’t want to seek treatment and he pretend that everything is fine.

He does not contribute to the household nor any chores. All he does is just sleep and eat after he comes home. Leaving everything to me. He neglects his appearance and it really turns me off. Even when he kiss me goodbye. I will feel so disgusted.

I don’t know whether I am normal. I kept wanting to end this marriage. But I got to hold on as I got to save more moo-lahs in order for everything to rent a home.

What should i do? I am so afraid that I might sleep with other guys.

My husband doesnt even bother to buy me any gifts during special occasions. We dont even hang out during weekends. He dont even notice when I get my hair done or anything.

He is just like taking me for granted.

He is more than 15 years older than me.

Any advices?

Alternatives to Xanax

Xanax and like benzo drugs are the only thing that helps my chronic insomnia. I cannot take them. Are there any safe alternatives? Non addictive? Ambian is also a no-go. TIA

Anyone else have felt so tired yet unable to sleep? Like the moment your head touches your pillow you're either getting flashbacks or have intrusive thoughts? Ive been sleeping with headphones on listening to those long playlists for insomnia but lately it takes too long for them to hypnotize me. Then unreasonably i wake up every hour from the moment i sleep till i wake up.It is hard to go back to sleep.
Can anyone tell me what they do personally that helps them get through the night?

I'm new here!

Hi, my name is lemonskinn. I'm here because I’ve just gotten another diagnosis. My doctor can’t help me, he said it’s just inflammation and chronic pain. The same type of things you’re already dealing with. So I wanted to find a community, that will help me feel not so crazy, when I’m outta my mind with pain.
