I am 48 years old and haven't slept well for at least 3 years. As I am writing this today this is my 3rd day in a row with ZERO sleep, I'm toast!
Problem is I am not even tired mentally, but physically wiped out. I have a racing heart, with extreme anixety. When I try to sleep I can hear every sound in the neighborhood...As AM becomes PM...Over and over as my sleep deficit builds up.
I have OCD, but I am on "Medicare" and I cannot get a doctor to do a cat scan, due to my lack of Insurance I assume, I have tried many years.
I have always taken sleep for granted never, drank, smoked, drugs etc...Although, for about a year now I have been drinking about a pint of "Vodka" in the evening to help me sleep...But, unsuccesfully.
I have tried everything under the sun to sleep you name it...herb teas, showers, routine, melatonan...etc, etc. It makes me sad to see the same old suggestions for sleep which unfortunately don't help.
I constantly have a feeling of complete terror and dread. Any help would be greatly apprecited...Skyler :eek:
