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?
