How do I get some sleep?
For years now I’ve been getting real sleep every few days. Like now I’ve been up since two thirty this morning. I’m full of anger all the time, and for what I don’t know. I have problems w/ pain,(mostly in my neck, and from severe rls), acid reflux to the point of wanting to throw up nightly and depression. It’s gotta come from the lack of sleep. I’ve try’d all kinds of anti-depressants, talking about my problems w/ a theropist only makes things worse. I’m getting desperate. I don’t want to become suicidal but I’m very close to the breaking point. Does anyone have any suggestions?

That sounds good, what do I do about the pain?
I notice you have a beautiful cat. Does your cat sleep with you? If so you may want to try a night or two without the company. I have to close my bedroom door to keep my cat out or it will keep me up. I wish you the best.
That’s my R.E.M.F.y, He is the sweetest :). He will sleep at the foot of my bed for awhile, but then goes in the livingroom. He don’t like the kickin’ and jerkin’ that I do as I’m tryin’ to fall asleepp. I am lookin’ for a new doc. in my area, any ideas?
Does exercise help? I sleep better if I get physical exercise at least 30-60 min. per day. I Have arthritis and fibromyalgia. Dr. insists exercise will minimize pain. It helps me feel better mentally also.
Merry Christmas to you too :). My main problem w/ sleep is pain. I injured my neck a few mos, back and I also suffer from RLS. I try to exercise, but it’s still painfull. The injury messed up the arthritis that I guess I already had.
I too have RBS restless body syndrome, i like the name you came up with. With that I have Lupus,Fibromyalagia, Chronic pain, Chronic Insomnia, anxiety and panic attacks, oh what a list I have. I have to say ditto on if I could just sleep like a normal person. I’m at my wits end. My primary md now thinks I just want drugs. Alright there is alot of people that just want drugs but why take a person with lab proof, and put them in that catagory. I also think if you go to the same dr, for a year are two they eventually want to throw there hands up and get rid of you. My dr. just said he couldnt refill my loratab anymore like I’m some kind of junky. I tell you what I just wished he could walk in my shoes for about a year!
I love you style!!
Hi, doodlebugz, It’s not really a style, I guess, just honest caring and desire to share and help with this stacked deck we’ve been playing with.. . . RLS and sleep deprivation are really under-discussed. Know what I mean.It can ruin a life. Happy New year to you and yours.!!!
