Day 6 of my elevated phase (I'd say manic but I'm waiting on my psychiatrist diagnostic app)

After first 2 nights of getting less than an hour a night I go to see doctors this is second time they have prescribed zopiclone... offered benzodiazepines for day time to try and stop the racing speech, thoughts and I feel like my hearts racing but I say NO!

Night 1 - 1 hour 15 min
Night 2 1 hour 5 min
Night 3 I took zopiclone slept 6 n half hours but broken
Night 4 2 hours
Night 5 I took zopiclone 5 30 min
Night 6 undiceded weather to take tablets or not.

Here's my theory. I'm tea total dont smoke and anti drug I dont even like paracetamol..... the docs warn on the addictive ness of these meds so now I'm paranoid I'm going to get addicted 😫😫😫 how do you all use zopiclone?

ANY other sleep tips?

The only thing that will quiet your mania enough to sleep is meds. You can keep spacing it out if you feel its safe for you. But you need to make sure you're sleeping so you dont crash as hard when it ends.

I think I need to becuase I have three children and life has to go on. until i am fully diagnosed I cant go on any anti psychotics either just been given mirtazpine to try and aid sleep as a side effect to no avail. I've even bought some insence sticks and cones for relaxation 😂😂 desperate women here.

It's my stupid brain.... taken to often can lead to them not working no more. It's the benzodiazepines that are 😫🔫

I'm currently trying this I think it's because I'm not mentally tired too if that makes sence. 1.45 last night and I woke up after a NAP to my brain jolting from thought to thought idea to idea its like torture

I try to stay outdoors during daytime as much as I can and walk for hours when I can not sleep... Staying in bed sleepless is my worst enemy and it is always this way that my episodes start...
