I was reading back to some of your early posts to try and get some understanding. When you say you're not feeling normal, do you mean something that should be addressed medically?

I read you are in the very early stages of recovery and our bodies are going through so many changes.

Can you tell us what's going on as best you can?

I understand. I had a horrible nightmare several nights ago and woke up in the middle of a panic attack.

You have to work tonight, yes? Maybe a nice long shower before work and a bit to eat will help?

My first month of sobriety was an insomnia fear. The second month I slept when I wasn't at work or an AA meeting. Early sobriety is hard work & our bodies are healing. I followed my body's orders and eventually started sleeping pretty normally.

You can do this. It helps me to take a deep breath slowly in through my nose and slowly exhale through my mouth.

i was so tired also when i became sober. i would want to lay down and sleep alot. i also had depression. as strange as it sounds my doctor said to become more active. so i stared to walk few miles a day and do alot of house work. soon i felt much better after walking/exercising. also maybe talk to your doctor about it.
