Can anyone else relate with how when it starts to get dark or evenings are easier and then when you wake up the next day you feel sick and tired all over again?
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Low Back Pain
Anxiety (Including GAD)
I always have a hard time falling alseep, tried melatonin, Benadryl, and. I always take a muscle relaxer before bed but it doesn't make me tired like it used to. Them when I wake up my pain is always so bad it takes me well over an hour to get moving around.
I haven’t had any issue falling asleep but I have been sweating and waking up with a stomach ache. When I push myself up all I want to do is fall back down again and go to sleep but then I feel the pain and feel scared again so I can’t. And it takes me forever to get moving around.
Yo! I get it where I struggle all day then around about 8 I feel better, I have energy, I want to be doing things, I have hope. So I don’t want to go to sleep because I know tomorrow I will be right back where I started🌻
it really is unfortunate because it keeps me from getting a decent amount of hours sleep and then I wake up all messed up again.
Yeah, I’ve been layed up for like a month cuz I don’t get enough sleep. Then I go to work all exhausted and end up hurting myself🌻
Yup that's why I'm almost entirely nocturnal now. I feel a lot less pressure to "perform" and function as a human being. If I need to do stuff in the daytime I wake up around 2 usually and do my daytime shit and then go back to being a nocturnal creature lol
I never thought of it that way. And it makes complete sense. Knowing it’s the end of the day and you can relax your mind and body and let the rest of the pressures of the world go.
yes exactly. I've done a lot of reflecting on why I prefer the night so heavily and I've come to the conclusion that my brain just feels safer at night. I don't have the pressures of the daytime, it's a lot quieter, a lot less people around me, and I have no time constraints on anything. And now that I'm not working due to health issues I'm just entirely nocturnal and my mental health is better for it
Absolutely. I used to feel this way everyday for years. It's very frustrating to feel like you're getting better and then feel worse.
absolutely. But I will push forward. I’ve been in this place before and got through it, I’ll do it again. I will never let my baby sister know that there is any other option then fighting through it. Hopefully she will never have to deal with anything like this tho.
