Re: skating on thin ice
Yes, Honey, I've been there and there is hope. Medications can help tremendously when in the proper dose and combination, but we go through hell sometimes finding that.
I've had to learn, to some extent, to trust my experience. That may not be a popular position, certainly not popular with my doctor, nevertheless, I believe that had I listened to my doctors and taken all they prescribed over the years, I'd be dead today. I'm not saying that medication is wrong. Only that I've been through hell with side effects, only to be told not to complain. And the best help I've gotten is to trust my experience, learn from it, and be very cautious about making the doctor God. Few of us really fit the textbook.
Insomnia is god awful isn't it. It may well be crux of my problem. I wish I had a great answer for you. All I can say is that what you're in ight now will resolve, will pass. It really will. One thing that helps me is spending time in nature, by the water or forrest. It just helps to be with natural rhythms. Sometimes very great things come from insomnia periods. I try to see value in it, whether I see it or not. Sending good wishes, sweetheart. Hang in there. You're not alone.
