Hi i dont know if anyone can help but i hope someone can, but ive been suffering with stress for over 12 weeks now (personal problems) and have awful insomnia, to the point where i think i went without sleep for over a week at the start, its that long ago i cant even remember. 12+ weeks down the line ive had nights with 2-3 hours and a few 3-4 hours but more nights with no sleep at all. I have been prescribed......... Ive lost count of the amount of tablets to which none have helped or some have seemed like they work but then it feels like my body or mind fights it and it stops working. That makes me feel worse because i dont know why my body is fighting it. Ive visited my doctors like 10 times and have rung helplines to but nothing seems to help me. My daughters christening is this sunday and im worried i wont be able to talk to people because i jus feel miserable all the time. Theres random moments where if im near ppl i can chat but i jus dont feel like i want to do it, hard to explain properly. Its effected my work hugely and my family life. I have a wife and child of 7 months and this isnt fair on them. Im now feeling at the point of i dont know what else to do. Ive been with my employee for 13 years and in the same store and i dont feel they have supported me that well, like they maybe only once or twice in this whole time have bothered to see if im ok. Which has hurt me alot because it makes me feel that they dont care about me or dont care what happens to me either. I feel like there targeting me, they'd love to get rid of me when they should be trying to help me shouldnt they? I feel alot of anger when im at work and thats not me! Even if like i sed i feel ive been treated badly, i wudnt have anger or hatred in me, its just not me and its not fair! Ive got myself back to work at points in the 12+ weeks and things seem ok but then i go backwards because i suddenly cant sleep agen! Its just not fair! I just dont want to carry on like this. I havent told my friends and family (apart from my wife) that im suffering because i feel a sense of shame/embarassment. I have hardly seen my friends which is not like me as im part of a group of friends that have known each other since we was little. Things i wudnt worry about now become a worry and that doesnt help me either. I feel lost. I have constant headaches and barely go out of the house even when ive been off work. Ive tried long walks to make me tired but i feel tired and thats it, nothing more. Its horrible when u fall asleep if im lucky at say 9pm and then i wake up and its midnight and then i cant go bk to sleep, thats it my body says its time to be awake. I feel so exhausted, weak and have no energy. Ive been eating more junk to so im putting on weight but currently not active to keep the weight off. Sorry its so long and ive probably missed things out but any help is greatly appreciated
