Isn't sleep crucial to good mental health? So many times I have laid in bed and not be able to sleep. My husband or social worker asks me, 'What do you think about?' Many times I don't know. I have had times when I ruminate on the same thoughts or have gone from one thought to the other and not been able to stop. But there have been times when I don't know what was keeping my awake. Right now, I have Lorazepam that knocks me out if I can't sleep. I try to sleep for 30 minutes and if I am not asleep by then, I take the pill. The only downside is the next day I feel "hollow" inside. It is a strange feeling. I feel delicate and that I need to rest. Since the Lorazepam has had such a knock out effect, the next time I can't sleep I am going to take an over the counter sleeping pill and see if that works. Hopefully, I won't have the hollow feeling. What do you think about sleep?

Speak to your doctor. There are other prescription meds you can be given that don't make you feel so bad the next day. After much 'experimenting' I have meds that are helping me sleep.

Best wishes.

My sleep has been erratic lately, there are times that I can't sleep at night but so sleepy during the day. there are days (especially on weekends)where I can sleep all day.

Some doctors will prescribe a medicine especially if you are dealing with mental issues. Those medicines can actually help but doctors would still recommend to not rely on those every time. Have you considered meditating, deep breathing exercise and staying away from gadgets?
