Hi I am a new bee here so just wanting to ask anyone for advice really. About me, want bore you all with sad life story?. That I've always been overweight, was raped twice and got pregnant twice and had to have abortions, could not tell my parents, as being the only girl with 6 brothers I got the blame for everything! And they would not have believed me anyway. Tried to kill myself several times, overdoses and slit wrists. Then lost my weight and started having proper boyfriends, been married 3 times, I have 2 children from my first marriage. I have taken anti depressants on and off for years. Have not been on them for a while few years now. Started to feel down again after moving house again over Xmas and new year 2013, started crying at night, feeling very lonely, fear of dying not seeing my kids grow up, and it happened almost every night. Woke up a week ago last Sunday and packed in smoking after 30 years. No patches, nothing. It's now day 10, still not smoking, but not sleeping either? Went to docs last weds and he gave me amiltripyline 10mgs, and told me to take one tablet 2 hours before bed. Hasten to say it hasn't worked, I am back to the docs again today to hopefully get something to help me sleep. This is the only side effect I have had, which I am pleased about, and also the horrid thoughts about dying etc have gone since I gave up smoking?, which is strange but must of been in my mind, telling me to pack in smoking, it must have been my time...has anyone else had the no sleeping thing when they gave up smoking?if so how did you cope with it. I have tried warm milk, hot bath, etc, etc, I dive on my poor husband every night although he isn't complaining, that's not tiring me out either! So any help would be great thank you.....
