I'm having flashbacks and can't sleep. I wish I could sleep and never wake up.

Hi Amber,
I'm sorry your struggling, does distracting yourself help? Like watching tv or listening to music?
Here if you want to talk more.
Hope you can sleep very soon.
Hugs

I like to color and read. That can help me relax. I had a bad panic attack last night. Thanks for the hugs.

Hello Amber,

I am having similar problems trying to sleep. When I close my eyes I think about my recently, failed relationship and when I fall asleep, I dream about the same thing.

I don't really want to take anymore pills because of how heavily medicated I have been dealing with my autoimmune disease. It is a loose - loose situation for myself. I am not sure how to handle things right now.
