Does anyone else really struggle to get to sleep and then when you do, struggle to stay asleep? I’ve been getting so little sleep that I feel delirious. Im scared that this could lead to just crashing and burning
Yes, I know that feeling well. I find sleep very difficult these days. I try to listen to audio books to help, sometimes they work, sometimes not.
Lack of sleep and struggling to stay asleep is something I am also experiencing, it is very difficult.
Have you considered talking with your GP? I was recently prescribed sleeping tablets, but have yet to take any, though my anxiety about going to bed and trying to sleep has eased just by having them there on standby.
@Malc39200 audio books sounds like a good idea to maybe try. I also listen to the radio, not music but a talk station which sometimes helps.
Nighttime is when my mind starts to do somersaults, scenarios and conversations replay.
Please take care @Diadhuit xx
@Diadhuit . l sleep in 2-3 hour fits & starts. Ranging from 3pm through to 3am. this morning l was up at 2.30am, so it will be early to bed for me again, usually after lve eaten. l use rescue remedy to calm me down enuf to let me drift off.
Since my husband died eight years ago, I have not had a full nights sleep. I am up and down like a yo-yo, coming down stairs in the morning at 1 am making a drink and going back to bed. Waking again at 4 ish my mind is racing all the time. I don’t know why it is happening, but luckily I am retired so I can always cat nap during the day if I want to but I try and avoid it if I can because I know I won’t be tired at night time. My husband was ill for eight years before he died and I was up during the night taking care of him and I wonder if I got into a routine of not sleeping through and it has just carried on after his death.
I used to look after our three grandchildren at the weekends and was shattered when I went to bed but still never slept the night through but I never felt tired the next day so what sleep I was getting must have been enough. It is the same now I don’t look after our grandchildren, I am not tired during the day so like I say, the few hours I get must be okay.
