Unhappy i cant sleep...

I have a major problem sleeping!!

i feel reli tired i usually get like 3 hours sleep.. i become very tired and think i shud go to bed around like 4 in the morning. then when i put my head down to sleep, my mind turns into overdrive... i think about my past my future, problems.. everything an i cant control it at all!. its really bad, iv not been able to put my head down and just sleep for years. I have another big problem, i mean iv been through my fair share of crap for my age, but i have a senario thing going on in ma head, i think about what if people died, and i go through a hole senario of how it would happen and what would be the effect, i mean i was going college the other day and i wounered what would happen iff i got jumped and stabbed. Somets rong cos i cant control these thoughts that just get me really down.. and one minute il be happy then il go through stuff in ma head and then il be really really down and i need someone to give me advise, because its effecting everything in my life, its effecting my will to get up for work, my relationships and my friendships and its not good when im aready in a really bad hole atm

Hi James, I am sorry to see no one else has responded to your post. I am by no means an expert in this but it seems to me you are depressed. You mention going to college. If possible, talk to a counseler at school. You might need professional help, or you just might need someone qualified to advise you about your thoughts, or just someone to listen. It might just be overload. Is school causing you worry? Anyhow, I really hope you talk to a school advisor or counseler. About no being able to sleep. I know how the mind goes into overdrive when you lay down on that pillow. What sometimes helps me is to count backwards from 100. Makes you concentrate a little on the numbers and other thoughts are pushed back.
Good luck and I hope you feel better soon.:

Re: i cant sleep...

your symptoms point to depression. Not just the sleep part - which is a BIG part, but the excessive worrying you do is a sign of depression. Talk to your doctor - even the college doc about antidrepressants - they could possibly change your life. Good luck
