No Sleep No Sanity
As I found out, lack of sleep for just a couple of days is madness. My psych med's sometimes build up because of my poor liver function. Its like being awake to the thirty third degree, except in a zombi like state.
Wow, just wow. I used to be able to stay awake on meth for five days typically. This was so much worse with just two days with some intermittent short one hour naps...two of them in some sixty hours.
Man glad that's over . I hope!

I agree that going without sleep is horrible. I get very bad anxiety when I go without sleep and I fear that I will never sleep again.

When I couldn't sleep myself out, I was aggressive. Fortunately, I didn't harm anyone seriously, because my aggression was verbal, not physical. (I should admit I did cause a lot of pain for my relatives.)
Has anybody else experienced such problem?

I have given up on trying to sleep and getting frustrated about it when I all ready know I am going to have trouble sleeping. I read library books around the clock until I am exhausted and finally sleep. Then I wake up and ask how many days did I lose this time...and gather up dishes to wash and try to start all over.
This is no answer at all, but I do understand the intense frustration.
so 3 1/2 days in the ether this time....it's been worse, but it does get old.
At least for me my years of nightmares (terrors at times) have stopped.
What discourages me so much now is that this is a cyclical pattern also.
It has become hard for me to tell myself, this too shall pass...and believe it will get better when for the last while, it passes. it returns.
