Hello earthquakegirl,

I can only imagine what you have been through;three eartquakes in the span of a year.

Might I suggest seeing a therapist and/or a physician who can prescribe medication.

There may also be a support group in your area for those who are having difficulty coping from either a financial,psychological level or both.

After what you've experienced,I seriously feel sleeping medication alone would not be the answer.

My prayers go out to all that were affected by the quakes.

Sincerely and Respectfully stated
Phoenix

I reiterate Phoenix's reply. You have been through a major traumatic event/s in your life and it does sound like you need to have some counselling of some form and take things from there. This is a great forum to talk to. Keep posting when you feel the need
