Default Help me, I need sleep.

I'm really tired but I can't seem to fall asleep. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can fall asleep and stay asleep?

The worst part of being bipolar is the sleepless nights, laying awake with your own mocking thoughts, dooming the new day before it can even start.

I wish I had the solution. Another night of zero sleep eludes me. I have come to hate my own voice inside my head telling me another day is going to be ruined.

Hi DamagedMind ,

I love your avatar / Icon-- BTW:

OK , can`t sleep , you can try OTC Benadryl , I take Rx strength ( 50mg`s - PRN ) and it can make you sleepy. I also take Dalmane for my insomnia , and have taken it so long doesn't` work ! ( still works , I have become tolerant to the drug ).

It seems everybody but me has a cell phone / smart phone , if you have one check out these videos on YouTube: ( best used @ low volume with ear phones )

https://www.youtube.com/user/jodywhiteley

I use them just about every night

O_____2 more things : Welcome to our family and please make yourself at home , and the other thing , no mind is damaged , unless of course Pink Floyd is doing Brain Damage !!



Later

DamagedMind,

Is there any particular medical or mental health reason why you are unable to sleep? We might be able to better advise you if we know a little more about you. Is this a common or daily occurrence for you?

Take care and hope your rests are improving.
