Cannot sleep

I just cannot get any good sleep. I know part of it is due to bipolar2 as my psych nurse said. He's really trying to help which is really nice!!! Last Dr in Vegas was so horrible I couldn't believe it!!! 2 am here now in Utah. Wanting to go for a walk soooo bad today. If anyone suffers from insomnia I'm sorry you have to deal with,it too. I've noticed when I don't sleep its hard to be in a good mood. That tired feeling even tho your wide awake is the worst. I believe its also due to the zillions of racing thoughts and unable to make them stop sure doesn't help much either. Lol. Constantly worrying about this and that. Can't wait to start CNA classes again to get recertified in fall. Until then just working a lot toward getting good meds to help with every issue I deal with so I can be fully ready to work with the sweet elderly. Haven't done any caregiving jobs since back in Vegas. Missing it cause the last lady I worked for was absolutely wonderful! Died of cancer on my shift. It was devastating to me. I really loved her! Anyhoo, I'm off course and rambling. Hope you all have a beautiful weekend with family and friends!

Hey I'm up too. It is 4:21 a.m. here in Florida lol. I recommend: Somnapure, Valerian, Melatonin, Yogi Kava Stress Relief Tea, Calm Powder, Magnesium, Skullcap, California Poppy (helps over-thinking) Vicks Zzzz's (Aromatherapy) a Hot Shower with Aveeno Stress Relief Body Wash, etc. I am so sorry about your friend. It sounds like you are doing a great job! Keep it up! Many good wishes to you! (Utah is nice I used to live in the Four Corners Area in CO and UT) ; )

That's cool you used to live here! I'm in st george. Never heard of four corners but I've only been here a month. I like it here. Where do you live now? Ill definitely try stuff you said. Already tried melatonin tonight. As far as the job goes I really like helping the elderly. Its a great generation!!

I live in Florida now and I love it here; I am originally from Cali so Florida is similar, just add humidity, heat and alligators! It is like SoCal but with a lower living price! I live 3 miles from Universal Studios. It is awesome here! I love to help the elderly as well; they are just the most precious, sweetest people, with much wisdom to share! (Although when I wear distressed jeans, my husband's grandmother says she can sew them up for me LOL.)

It was nice talking to you, hopefully Sweet Dreams are on the way (someday, haha!)

; )

Sorry, I forgot to say I'm in Orlando, FL. (I'm a zombie from no sleep LOL)

I've been awake since midnight trying to fall back asleep. It hasn't been going to well as it's 528am and still no sleep. I don't remember the last time I slept through a night. It's been so long. Some nights I get more sleep then others mind you its broken up like a couple here a couple there. Up for a few hours in between. Today has been particularly rough. And your right on about tough on being in a good mood. It also makes my work day rough as well. Work today is not gonna be fun!

I hope you find some of the things Diviny mentioned help you to Sleep!

Take care and have a good weekend!

Have you tried Rholiola Rosea or Ashwagandha? They are natural roots I believe and adaptagens. When I was manic and was not sleeping the only thing that helped was Rodiola Rosea. I take Ashwagandha now and it’s sedating.

Ok thank you starrlight! How are you doing?

Hi I’m actually doing okay over here today, thanks Lovedogs! Yesterday was a good day too. We have family visiting from Maine. I live in Virginia. So I’m excited that they are here but it also causes me some extra anxiety ya know. How are you doing this morning? I know it must really be difficult to feel good when not getting ample sleep. I hope you can sleep well soon.

That's so good to hear!! That's great your family is coming! I totally get being anxious in a situation like that!! I'm good I guess. Just trying to sleep right now and hoping I can deal with my mother!

Have you gotten sleep? Good luck with your mother! 💕

Can't seem to get quality sleep ever!!😭😱😟 Woke up 3 times thru out the night. I'm so frustrated. I was sleeping ok at my moms but came home for a few days and can't sleep. Ugh. Oh she started in with me this morning and I cut her off and said hush no talking your going to listen to me So she stopped talking and I told her how she frustrates me and I think things will be better. She's aware a little bit of what she does and she apologized. I said I love you mom with all my ❤!!! How was your day starrlight??
