Discussions that mention valium

Hi Katkin,

Sorry to hear you aren't sleeping well. I know all too well what that's like. If I didn't have my head elevated just right a few months ago I would be waking up in the middle of the night like I just escaped a near-death experience - total panic! It's awful. I can only tell you that it will get better and your sleep will return. When I couldn't sleep, I found rocking myself gently would knock me out for a while. When things were really bad I used the big guns - Valium. That worked really well but be careful with it. If you over do it, you start relying on it too much and it is apparently not good for compensation.

Hope that helps.....good luck,
