I've had bipolar for along time. I've been living on my own for a year now. The holidays are hard on me. I've been super depressed and not able to sleep. I was working 3rd. I seen right away that 3rd isn't good for me. Now I'm stressed out bc I walked out of my job...i have no money to pay my billSo stress and all the holiday crap has made it so i can't sleep. I can't afford my sleeping meds. I don't know what to do to get some sleep.. I don't want to have to go to the hospital... Please help... I don't have alot of support and I,live alone.

:welcome: Sorry to hear you're so down, being in a sleepless space can be really hard. If you are used to medicines but don't have them it makes it extra difficult. Have you tried meditating to calm the mind? That's free and I know many people for whom it works.

This thread on mindfulness is a great place to start, and contains some lovely poems and quotes as well.
