So fed up now - running on empty

I have my third Prostap injection today - my next op is in October. This will be my third injection.

The insomnia is insane, I've kind of been putting up with it but I'm now not sure how I can cope with another month or so of this :'(

I gave up going to bed early as tired, because I'd get to bed and just lay awake. I get bad pains and aches in my spine so laying in bed for hours isn't great (no idea why?? Can't sleep on stomach as my spine hurts).

Anyways, I was SO tired that I went to bed at 9:30pm last night....was literally STILL awake at 4am. I don't get it.

I am a single Mum to a three year old, have two jobs, applying for another and am studying. I don't get how I'm suppose to cope with all of this without sleep. One job is especially suffering as my brain is just working slower :'(

I don't know what to do any more :'(
