Dodgy times

(6 Posts)

I've not slept properly for over 2 weeks now. 3 hours a night ish. For the last two nights I've been on 7.5mg Zopiclone,which has extended my sleep to around 5 hours. Whoop.

I can't concentrate. I'm horrendously edgy and don't know what to do with myself. I keep seeing things scuttle about, which I suspect are hallucinations from lack of sleep. DH, who is renound for his lack of observation skills is worried, which is worrying in itself.

Now to top it all off the crappy jump of things thoughts have started, though I am not depressed and have no desire to do any such thing, but bloody hell when it starts it's annoying and won't stop.

Seeing my care co this afternoon, so have support available, but this is hard work. Doesn't help that I have the kids this morning as it's strike day and boy are they hard work when I'm like this.

Just wanted to offer you a virtual hand to hold. Lack of sleep can make life truly terrible.

Sleep deprivation is awful sad Do tell your care coordinator.

Thank you smile I saw my care co and she's referred me to the home treatment team to get me through this spot. I'm at a friend's house now and will stay here with the kids till DH can pick me up. Feel like I've taken a real step back being referred to them as I've been fine for ages now, but it makes sense as I'm not well.

Grrrrrr. So frustrating.

That worked nicely with cc smile.

I had really rough patch a little while ago but crisis team was never offered. I was asked if I need to see them but it was never "prescribed" so I said no. Hinein sight not so good decision but I thought one really has to be extremely bad to be qualified. But if I get bad again I will ask for them.

She asked if I'd be "willing to engage" with them again. I figured that since it was being suggested, I probably wasn't coming across too well. It's weird. I've only been referred before when I was really depressed and suicidal, so this is new as I'm not. I'm just really wired in an unpleasant way.

I will be positive. This is a short term thing. It will be fine.
