Dear Veggy, I know how frustrating it can be; I've also had nights and days when i simply could not sleep.
For me it was a severe case of hypothyroidism. No sleep meds, no nothing. Nothing helped.
What is it for you? anxious thoughts? Would writing out your thoughts here help? would talking to your therapist help?

i've had chronic insomnia for years, but i've had so much going on with my now ex and trying to get him to calm down with his issues so maybe we can be together again that i've just stopped sleeping. the only time i ever slept through the night was when i was with him. i have an appointment thursday to get new sleeping pills, but so far of the ones i've tried, i don't feel anything at all with them.

seems like no matter what i do, nothing helps.

Hope you can get help soon. Not sleeping affects your health big time. Perhaps you need something for anxiety rather than sleeping pills. Take care.

i slept last night after a shot of ativan. it took a few hours to fall asleep, and i still woke up a lot, but bad sleep is better than zero sleep.

I am glad you got some sleep even if it was bad sleep. Could you ring your T and ask for him to call something into the drug store so that you don't have to wait another night.

i don't think she would. i've only seen her once. i don't much like her, but my insurance is going out or ..probably already is out, so i can't switch. but like.. her way of finding out if i'm depressed is saying "are you depressed?" and then i told her that i didn't know because i was so unhappy/miserable over trying to fix things with my ex, but that i SHOULD feel awful over a break up..it's normal. she'd just go "well, are you depressed?" and seem kinda irritated if i didn't just diagnose myself.

Veggy,
It's understandable that you are not sleeping well, especially with the stuff going on with your ex. I'm sorry that you are not getting the right questions asked in your T.
Perhaps you can take an internet questionairre to see if you have any other symptoms of depression, that's how I came to be in the place I'm at. I did it over the internet and then realized I was depressed. Relationship troubles and concerns can sure beat a person down, I hope that you can work things out with your ex.

that's a great idea, amante! i'll have to do that tonight. i wish they'd just let me stay on ativan, but i guess if it's terribly addictive i understand why not...

I guess I never knew that I would become totally dependent on Ambien CR to sleep, if I don't take it - the night is horrendous with little sleep and very blood gory violent nightmares. how did u make out doing the quiz, did you get to do it?
hope you got some sleep last night.
