Lulu Posted August 9, 2006 Report Share Posted August 9, 2006 hey y'all fellow board folks--i've been having a LOT of trouble sleeping the past 4 days or so, i'll doze for an hour or two, have weird boo-freaky dreams and then PING! awake again! i think i've got 3-5 hrs total/day, but all broke-up like and i'm in a total POTS-hole when not surging. i feel like a yoyo! tonight is the worst. i've been trying *everything* i can think of to go to sleep, trick myself to sleep.....nothing is working. i'm ready to cry!! i think i'm going crazy! i tried my chill out stuff beginning at 10>> it's almost 5! yikes!so tonight i've had all sorts of aches and pains the allover kind i can't get a handle on in summer, cuz it's too hot to take a warm bath and use electric blankie! and i'm *freaking* out cuz i have a final in (gulp!) in less than 6 hours!! i *know* i'm making it worse with worry, i can't stop though. sigh. tried deep breathing, aromatherapy, a warmish shower....i dunno if i'm nervous or what or if i started surging and now can't stop! i've even tried my PRN meds and vicodin for the pain (it's gotten that bad!) and nothing is working. and i can't make my legs stop jiggling. does anyone know what that is about?? never had that before!this keeps happening to me off and on again, but it happened last final and then when i got to it i was falling asleep while taking the test!!...um, not really a good thing. despite this history, i'm trying to stay positive. i'm going to try and RELAX! i've got to chill...feels like there's a drill sergeant in my head screaming at me to "RELAX!" ack! the cheese is slipping off the cracker, y'all. i feel so nutty. this does not bode well for test taking. wish me luck? ideas for next time?[anyone ever see that tshirt, "can't sleep. clowns will eat me." ??? that's what i keep thinking my life is like, over and over again...hence the title ] Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
