I'm having trouble sleeping these days... I feel like I'm gonna die or going insane.. I hate this feeling.. old and weird thought keep coming through out the night which keeps me awake.. after waking I can't tell if I slept or not

not sleeping can really have a bad effect on mental and physical health ,have you considered trying some sleeping tablets in the short term? x

Quetiapine an antipsychotic should help you sleep. You only need a tiny dose 25mg

I remember the last time I slept properly. It would have been some time in November 1986

Thanks.. your reply made me smile... I didn't sleep last night too..now it's 6am ..and I'm writing this without any sleep .. my hands are shaking.. sometimes this made me realise I'm not alone in this.. I've started loosing my memories too..so.. it's hard for me to remember dates...my father will be returning home today and family will be scolding me for not sleeping..well I tried.. but I couldn't

I'm not joking, though. It's literally the case. Had severely disrupted sleep due to chronic pain (generally waking me once an hour) since December 86.

I'm really sorry....it was stupid of me to think like that... I'm sorry you are going through a lot and I thought it as a joke.. I'm sorry.. I should have thought more before writing anything..

Nah, don't worry about it, please don't think I was offended/upset at all, because I wasn't. The main problem is I always feel hesitant at giving too much detail about what I'm talking about on a semi-public forum. My sleep has been terrible since December 1986 for a specific reason, though.

Hi Emma. I heard having a banana an hour before bed is supposed to work. At least it is not medication so you could try that. Two of my friends started doing that and slept. Just a thought
