    Once again, wide awake. :( what happened to the days when sleep happened almost at will? Gone, I guess like most everything else positive in this world.

    Hi total eclipse, doc is aware of sleep issue (well lack of it) but we were trying to avoid additional meds - I really dislike them. Since its clearly not working to try powering through will revisit at next appt. Melatonin was what I forgot to try and find this weekend. Will have to see if I can find it today. I'm just too cranky and sad when I can't get sleep...even with ad med. if I can't find that, may have to resort to OTC option for now...

    I have not been able to sleep on my own without medication for 10 years. It sucks, I managed to lower my dose of seraquel over a year period but I can't seem to get off the drug and just sleep without the aid of medication. I hate depending on medications with terrible side effects to just sleep.

    Hey Emily, thank you. No sleep (or very little) stinks! :/. The medication route for it scares me. I sooo don't want to be dependent on little pills for anything. It may be tougher on those around me though...me, cranky - not fun. ;). Here's to another try for sleep tonight!

    Arrowpenny I am so sorry - 10 years? That has got to wear on you. I don't understand why we can't sleep. I used to be able to sleep anywhere at anytime (of course that was before I started trying to NOT be depressed.). Oh for the days when I could stuff those emotions away and throw away the key. Guess it didn't work that great since once they were triggered it was like the Ghost Buster's containment grid "failure" ;)

    I hope we get a miracle and have sleep and wonderful dreams without chemicals one day soon!
