Akathisia

My akathisia has suddenly started flaring to the worst it's ever been for almost 3 days now and I have no idea why. It's torture, my brain and body have so many horrible sensations going on right now, I just want to jump out of my skin.

I guess it doesn't help that I've not slept great for weeks but I have no choice. My mum and her new puppy wake me up every morning around 5am and sometimes throughout the night. I struggle to sleep before 12am at the earliest lately because akathisia makes it impossible, and when I do sleep I can feel the aka in my dreams. I'm exhausted and sick.

I just want my life to end so much. I feel so broken. I can't keep living like this but there's nothing I can do. I was starting to become ambitious again despite my depression, I was setting up goals etc, and now I can't do anything except waste away in bed watching stuff to distract me and wait for the day to end only to have a worse night. Akathisia is hell. I've been through so much trauma in my life, have almost 30 other debilitating health conditions and absolutely nothing compares to this torture.

Hey
I'm replying because I want you to know I read what you wrote. I heard you.
I've no words of wisdom here, not that you're looking for that. It sounds like it's hell for you.... which makes so much sense.
Sending love from a stranger...

My sympathies about your Akathisia. Because I suffered that myself. It was a result of taking certain meds. So I had to discontinue them, which I did. The alternative solution was Zen meditation, which I have continued to this day.
