Nov 26, 2017 · Addison's Disease: Tired of being tired in Diabetes/Endocrine System

I am extremely tired all of the time. I take four meds. for my Bipolar and each one has tiredness as a side effect. I sleep 12-14 hours a night and take at least a two hour nap everyday. I feel like I’m sleeping my life away. I feel bad for you and wish I could give you some advice. Have you discussed these problems with your doctor? Please let us know what you are going to do.

Dispite having PTSD and Bipolar Disorder I too love life. I know it’s difficult to say that when suffering from depression but I always try to be as positive as possible.

You need to do what you can do to make yourself and stop worrying so much about what other people think. I hope you make up your mind soon.
Good luck and please let us know what you decide.
Take care,

Here’ a great big hug for you JJ. Do your grandchildren live far away? Also, have you spoken to your doctor about the pain you’re still having? Perhaps there is something else that he/she can prescribe for you. Good luck, and maybe you can mention to your children that you’d like to see your grandchildren more often. What about you going to visit them of them visiting you? Take care.

I’m sorry I meant to put down the cost for a month as being $20,000 not $200,00 DUH!

I”m lucky I have some of the top hospitals in the country in my area. I went to Silver Hill in Connecticut. I was there a week but if I told them I was suicidal they would keep me, I believe for two weeks. I know you can stay there as long as you want but my insurance will only pay for two weeks. After that you pay by the month which is approximately $200,000.
I made some friends while I was there and some of them were staying for a month or two. New Canaan is an area where many people are very wealthy and can afford to pay. I would love to be able to go for two months, I could do one but I don’t think my husband would be very happy.
Another thing about going to the hospital is that you always end up with a roommate. I hate sharing a room with a stranger. I’ve been in the hospital three times, this last time (about five years ago) in Belmont Ma. and my roommate was pretty scary, I didn’t feel safe therefore if I have to go back in I’ll go to Silver Hill. Most of these programs offer day programs that are pretty helpful. My insurance will pay for that as long as I need to go. Enough babbling I just hope that eveyrone is doing the best that they can out there today.
Take care all,
Leslie
