No ZzzQuil, no sleep. Seroquil alone isn't doing it. Torture to fall into a sort-of sleep for 5 minutes, then awaken. Same thing over and over. Finally giving up and taking ZzzQuil.

If i fall asleep for up to 4 hrs then wake up for whatever reason then Im up for the rest of the night and day. I was really stressed out which makes me tired and fell asleep at 8pm. Woke up at midnight and cant fall asleep again. Any suggestions on a hobby you can do quietly in the middle of the night????

Coloring books. Listen to audiobooks or music. Sewing/Crocheting.

Slept four hours and some change. Holding on, but hands are slipping. Second night of a mini panic attack. Nose feels stuffy. Can't open the door or windows too long because of smoky smell (I live in L.A.). Trying hard, but if I don't get medical intervention soon I'll fall (I have a therapist appointment on Monday and some bloodwork tomorrow for a physical. Time's ticking and I'm growing impatient that's all).

Feeling isolated. My husband and kids continue their support, but something's got to give I guess.

Any kind of art or craft work.


2 nights in a row of true nightmares. Unusual for me. Maybe I'll start listening to binaural beats before sleep time again.
