Can't sleep, can't stop thinking

Ugh! Cannot beat this constant anxiety. I am worried all time and it has led to really bad insomnia. Can barely function, gained weight and just cant sleep. Someone told me my adrenal gland could be out of wack??? They recommended a 'supplement' for it? Does anyone have any knowledge of this? If so, will it help? At my wits end!

Feeling the same and it sucks to be honest,not having a peace of mind sucks,weight gain is another thing that makes me feel like I failed myself,but hang on one day it will be better

So Sorry! IT does suck! Big Time! Hang in there....I am trying to! I really don't want to go get sleeping pills so I want to try those adrenal pills.

This was me last night, worst sleep ever! Even my ambien barely worked, only 3 or 4 hours of sleep. So many worries. What are you worried about?

Nothing in particular! I wished I had an Ambien but I am trying not to go that route...been there done that! I hope that it works for you! I have such an addictive personality, I am scared of it!

Ya unfortunately I won’t sleep at all without it. I worry about stuff I have no control over

I know me too!...Honestly if I went to the Dr & he gave me ambien or WHATEVER i would take it...I am desperate!

I feel nervous by doing nothing and chillen. Like Foreals anxiety? Got my tummy all in a knot and chest feeling nervous and tight. Oh and yeah, truly hate that I’m always the last person up at night. Smh.

OH YEAH...LAST ONE AWAKE & FIRST ONE UP! UGH! THIS IS MAKING ME CRAZY!

Right!! But seriously I’m glad I’m not the only one going through these things. We look normal but inside we’re all connected.. I wish people who’re shirts that said I suffer from... and then we’d know lol.

I am in the same boat, I suggest you talk to your Dr. I am on Gabapentin, for the anxiety - it is non addictive and helps with my sleep. I also take two antidepressants one in am and one at bedtime which is also to help me sleep. Go and get help, you deserve it. Look for support groups in your area, they are generally free and are full of suffering people who support each other. Go on line and look for help, the pages in the front of your telephone book has listings of help also. And of course you can come here to us, we help each other and give love and support. Hope this is of help to you, from one sufferer to another, with love... Sprinkle 1..... xx
