God where do I start. I have had the worst week! 4 nights of not sleeping has affected me massively, both physically and mentally. Physically I was obviously very tired, felt nauseous, had a runny nose, dry mouth which I still have now. Mentally I was very depressed very anxious, crying loads, couldn't concentrate. Had to have 2 days off work which I was not happy about. Thursday I picked up some sleeping tabs from the doctors. My friend said her son in law swears by night nurse so I picked up a bottle of that aswell. That night I had a tab and a cap full of night nurse. I slept for 6 hours solid. Friday night I just had night nurse, I had a capful but decided one wasn't enough so I had a big swig out of the bottle. I then felt dizzy so went to bed. Woke up this morning feeling really groggy. I had to go out shopping and when I was in the supermarket I felt very panicky. This stayed with me all day 🙁
This has led me to ask:-
1. To the women, do you feel like your anxiety is to do with your hormones, getting worse around the time of your period? I have had this feeling for years but because I have the coil I don't get periods so it's really hard to tell.
2. Has anyone taken night nurse for sleep and if so did you feel like I did today?
3. Does anyone have a constant dry mouth like I have now. I'm gonna make a doctors appointment about this I think. And also talk about my hormones.
Hope everyone is ok and has had a better week than me!
