I'm so cranky

Recommended Posts

Okay, most of y'all know that I recently started college - about a week and a half ago - and for the past few days I haven't gotten much sleep - probably about five hours a night. Now I'm tired and cranky and my sleep cycle is shot to hell! It's not like I'm going to bed late or anything (well, last night I did), I just can't get to sleep. I'm tossing and turning, and waking up all night long.

I dropped Math so that I wouldn't stress over it, but I picked up an English class to replace it (silly me). However, most of my other classes are pretty cake (except Survey of Chemistry which has problem solving).

To combat my stress, I've been exercising (walking to and from school), and I cut my coffee to two cups a day - and that's half-caff. This week I also started to volunteer (two hours a week - I have time to kill between classes) at the English as a Second Language center on campus.

I'm tempted (so tempted) to ask the doctor for Seroquel again. I don't know if I really *need* it, or if I should just wait and see if I adjust to college life first. I mean, I've been doing well enough without the Seroquel since I ran out last October... But I really, really hate not sleeping. Being tired makes it hard to control my moods - even on the Topamax. Regular sleep aids don't work on me, and I've tried the normal stuff (warm milk, tea, etc...). I'm just tired of being tired again. I thought I was over that.

Guess I'm looking for some not so obvious suggestions, and I wanted to vent. Thanks for listening.
