I'm so frustrated by insomnia. There is no way to avoid the fact that I'm going to be tired all the time. I can feel the burn all the way down my spinal cord. I'm sweaty. I can't think. I constantly think if I could lay down it would be better and yet even if I could that would not stop it. I'm so tired and so weary of being expected to perform as if I'm not tired. Nobody really cares. They just want what they feel their entitled from me to provide for them. Controlled substances helped but doctors have their hands tied and the FDA won't allow them to help me. Even those don't cure this. They just take the edge off. I'm so fed up with naturopathic medicines that do nothing but drain money. I have to accept there is nothing I can do to end this suffering, at least nothing legal. Truly out of my control.

I am so with you on this issue.. I can't get my doctor to help me sleep. I am always awake until the sun comes up. Then I may or may not sleep for maybe an hour and a half. Not nearly enough to clear brain fog. I am forgetting things all the time. This is getting scary.

My meds have run out and my supply chains have cut me off. I took 100mg of elavil. I lay for an hour trying to think of nothing. It wasn't working. I took another 100mg. It put me out I guess some time before midnight. I woke up at 7am. Elavil got me to sleep but I'm paying for it now. I can barely open my eyeballs and I'm sweating just to get dressed and go to work. I've been on it for 20 years. It'll be 4 or 5pm before the side effects wear off. But it's not a controlled substance so I have access to it. The side effects of that would debilitate most people but for me it's far better than a sleepless night. That's something only someone who has suffered from this could possibly understand.

It's a tough thing to accept being tired all the time, especially when you know there are drugs out there that will put you to sleep and improve your quality of life. And yet the medical camp says that if it doesn't cure the insomnia than you shouldn't be allowed to have it.
