  • Beat anxiety without pills?

    I've been having anxiety for the past month or so and it's crippling my life. I want to get rid of this and go back to my normal self but I definitely don't want to take pills because I don't want to alter my mind or have any of the side effects. My doctor gave me pills to help me sleep which were a mild antidepressant and they just made me feel worse and gave me bad nightmares. Is there anyway out of this without pills?
  • Can anyone else FEEL alertness in the front of your brain (like when you can't sleep)? Even stranger, my brain sometimes "clicks off" when i roll onto my side, as if my head position ACTUALLY affects my wakefulness

  • extreme ocd and skin picking???

  • Has anyone gone through Ambien withdrawal?

    I've been on it for a number of months. When I asked a doctor and a pharmacist they said that the only withdrawal symptom I would likely experience is insomnia. If it were that simple, it would not be categorized as an addictive drug and MY doctor would not have been so reluctant to put me on it in the first place. My doctor is out indefinitely so I can't ask her.
  • Has anyone had their anxiety spike with insomnia at the onset of perimenopause?

  • It's 1 am and i'm rearanging my room

    So it's 1 am, I couldn't sleep, and I'm moving all my furniture around. I've already cleared everything off every surface, and thought I might wright this before I start heavy lifting. I have done this many times, and it's always late at night, when not a creature is stirring. Usually it's just a desk or dresser, but today it is my whole room, bed and all.(even though I freak out for about a month when my bed is moved before I get used to it) I feel oddly satisfied and accomplished whenever I do this, and this time is no exception. The thing is: I don't stop until I finish. And that is a problem for I am weak and small, meaning I am frustrated pulling and pushing these heavy objects, afraid of making noise so early in the morning or breaking something, I get tired quickly, and it takes a loooong time. Does anyone else go through this? What are your thoughts? Do you think I should quell the urge or is this a normal thing to do? And lastly, is it more harmful than helpful?
