I've had at least 3 full 24 hour days in the last 7 days where I haven't been able to sleep at all, no matter how hard I try or if I take meds that are meant specifically for helping me sleep 🙃 I can currently feel my heart beating hard in almost every part of my body even though I'm laying down and haven't been active in hours 🙃

      That's terrible. I'm so sorry to hear that you're having so much trouble. Have you spoken to a doctor about your sleeping troubles? I know for me, what finally worked was Seroquel/quetapine. Also, have you tried those guided meditation videos that talk you through regulating your breathing and so on? I know that those work for a lot of people, even though I've never had a lot of luck with them. As for the racing heart feeling, it's just your body saying that it's tired, and it's probably some anxiety related to it because you haven't been able to sleep. Just try some slow, deep breaths and try not to focus on your racing heart rate. I know when I used to have days like that, hyper focusing on it would just make it worse. If you're already on a prescription sleep aid, and it doesn't working, you need to either talk to your doctor about changing the dosage or changing medications.

      I’ve had those nights before and ended up manic. Try anything and everything under the sun to try and sleep.

        @Snoose I wish I had a more specific response on what to take (remeron, trazodone, lunesta)

          @Snoose I'd take my meds but I've already had to double up because they've stopped working before and doubling up doesn't work anymore either, so I don't want to risk taking more than what I was
