Hey, new ( and grateful) member here. My first cry for help:
How do people sleep ? I’m newly diagnosed at 43 and have had problems sleeping my entire life. The only way I can fall asleep naturally is if I exhaust myself through physical exercise, otherwise I cycle through different sleep aids like melatonin and drowsy antihistamines or on many occasions, alcohol.
I started Elvanse yesterday and had excitedly fantasised earlier in the week that it would turn my brain off enough to fall asleep without any help, but alas it was not to be. I often feel like my brain has forgotten how to fall asleep at all. All and any sleep advice from this community is welcomed 😊.
