Way Tired

I'm really dragging my feet, this severe sleep deprivation is really getting to me. I stopped sleeping after my transplant. The doctors keep switching up all my medications and I'm pretty sure it's going to get better? All I know is my daily functioning level has been on the floor since August 1st, when I switched to amtitryptoline (that is likely spelled wrong but I'm to tired to go look up the correct spelling).

I think this is the last big hurdle to getting my life back and getting back to work. Right now I feel severely overwhelmed by not much. I went to the doc a few days ago and I could hardly string a sentence together. I apologized and he said that's pretty normal considering. He changed up my meds again and I'm hopeful it will work. I'm pretty damned fed up with this.

I remember as a kid my mom telling me that some people had disorders, where they couldn't sleep. I think I had seen an article or something about it and had asked. I remember thinking how absurd, how could not sleeping do such terrible things to people?

Weird thing is, my mom and I are going through menopause at the same time and she can't sleep either. This is so awful, I just can't manage. I have stuff to do.

Sorry to hear you're not sleeping well BaldiLocks - I've been in that territory and it can be very frustrating when one wants to get on with one's creative activities but feels and acts like a zombie on downers.
I have two suggestions from my own experiences. If your old sleep routine is no longer working it may be time to experiment with new sleep routines rather than continuing indefinitely with trying to make the old one work - I stuck ineffectively to my old routine for years after its use by date before I came to the conclusion that it was time to move on to new ways of getting enough sleep.
I can only report what works for me (and your daily routine may not allow this) - after a substantial cereal and milk breakfast and then washing the dishes and cleaning my teeth I go lie down in bed and sleep for an hour or two. After a good meal the body-brain is more receptive to sleeping as many people who work in offices and have a big lunch and then fall asleep at their desks can testify.
I can also sleep after lunch but it disrupts my ability to get to sleep at night so I don't sleep after lunch unless really tired.

You have my sympathies - I hope good sleeps come your way again soon :)

Thank you so much for the input, Ed. This whole sleep debacle is very frustrating. I just want my life back! I used to be a morning person but have realized that I sleep best in the morning now.

I haven't tried getting up and then sleeping again, but I will try it. Last night, at about 3am I realized, I wasn't asleep. So weird.

Thanks again.

I thought of you when I read this article: Its about undiagnosed women's health issues that cause fatigue, etc. I have a few in mind to speak to my doctors about. Maybe there is an answer for you in one of these?

Thanks for sending that Caroline. I'll take a look at it.
