auburngirl Posted August 12, 2009 Share Posted August 12, 2009 For the past 3 years or so I have to had to take benadryl every night to go to sleep. The benadryl however leaves me in an stupor the next day and I can barely function. Not good because I am a full time student with two jobs. I have to be able to focus at all times. I am tired (literally) of not being able to fall asleep naturally. I did all the little tricks to help me relax but nothing seems to shut me down except if I drink a wine cooler a couple of hours before I go to bed and being on antidepressants, I really don't need to do that too often. If I don't take anything I will just literally lie in bed all night. I get up watch tv for a while, read a book, drink milk... you name it I've tried. I am trying my best to stay away from any prescription sleeping meds bc I am tired of relying on medication to function. My family thinks I am lazy (and maybe I am) because I can eaisly sleep until noon if I am not bothered. I am trying to pull myself up by my bootstraps so to speak but I feel like I am just trying to climb out of quick sand. Please someone tell me I am not losing my mind and control of my body. What can I do? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
