i'm tired but can't fall asleep so


wonderingalways  asked:

Tumblr mom? It's becoming obvious to me that I have some kind of sleep disorder. (Tired and falling asleep constantly even while driving) I live in the middle of nowhere and i can't not drive ( 1 hr commute to anywhere) and I'm too broke to move. My therapist has me on adderall to combat the excessive daytime sleepiness but he doesn't really want to diagnose me. But I don't really know how to get actually diagnosed? Any thoughts? Advice? Its starting to get super dangerous and I'm worried. Thx!

Oh dear, I’m so sorry you are dealing with this. You mention your therapist is aware of it, but have you brought it up with your primary care physician? They would be the best person to press for getting started on the path towards a diagnosis for this, as the cause could be physical and not necessarily a strictly psychological issue. (Possibly why your therapist doesn’t want to diagnose you)

I was told for years my extreme fatigue (ideally I need to sleep every few hours because I don’t sleep solidly. I wake up every two hours and trying to stay put for a solid eight can often be just as tiring as getting up and doing something productive at 3am) was entirely stress and in my head. Of course this was when doctors all thought things like cfs and fibro were purely psychological conditions and prescribed exercise thinking it was lethargy from inactivity, and the recent science of which has debunked that idea and started to prove the sufferers right in that there is something wrong with our immune systems and amazingly, we’re not just faking being a little bit over tired. Amazing.

Your pcp, if you haven’t already spoken to them, will likely order a lot of tests, such as a full blood work up to check your levels for “simple” things like chronic anemia or low potassium. Low levels of VItamin D too have also been linked to extreme and often life altering fatigue as well. They may even wish to do a stress test (you run/walk on a treadmill and they see what effect it has on your body) and see what that throws up, but the first thing will always be blood testing for the basics.

If you have seen your PCP and they ignore you over this, then I’m afraid it’s time to find a new PCP. I know that’s often easier said than done, but sadly it’s something people with chronic conditions learn to have to do fairly often until we find the One (maybe even Two) Doctor(s) who gives a shit and don’t think we’re faking.

I wish you luck, and if you want to talk more please message me again. I might not be able to do much but I’m good at listening <3

I haven't been able to sleep lately and I just keep imagining Isak having some troubles with his sleep and curling around Even but he still can't sleep after 2 hours even though he's really tired so he just starts shaking and Even wakes up and is like "hey baby what's wrong" while giving kisses and Isak is just all "Evy I can't sleep and I'm just so tired but I can't sleep and I just wanna sleep now I'm sorry I woke you up" so Even starts singing a song and keeping him close so he can drift

:((( isak slowly falls asleep to both even’s soft voice and the steady rhythm of his heart:(

The Signs as Frequent Thoughts of Mine
  • Aries: They hate me, I can see it in their eyes. They despise me, and for what? Oh well. I'll give them a reason to.
  • Taurus: I'm not listening to them. Why should I? They don't know what I need. They don't understand. Why should I do what they tell me?
  • Gemini: A room full of smiling faces. I like this. This is what I need. They want a good story? I'll tell them hours worth.
  • Cancer: These feelings won't escape me. I can't write them away, I can't wash them away. They're always there, and yet, they're always turning the tables on me.
  • Leo: They won't look at me. Don't they see me? Am I not myself? They usually love me, they stop and stare when I enter... Oh God, why won't they look at me?
  • Virgo: It's all a mess now. The pieces are scattered. Everything in my life is overlapping, how am I supposed to fix it if I'm not even sure how it's supposed to fit together?
  • Libra: I wish they would just tell me. I want to hear, I want to know. I want to understand, more than anything, I just want to understand.
  • Scorpio: They haven't seen the likes of me. They haven't seen what I'm capable of. They've underestimated me, Oh God, they are so wrong.
  • Sagittarius: Nothing can touch me, nothing can hurt me. I can soar above this. Nothing can ruin my disposition, not this weekend, at the least.
  • Capricorn: I have to keep going. If I don't, this will never work out. I am tired. I am sick. But I have to keep going. I can't afford to do anything less.
  • Aquarius: I'll paint a pretty little picture and sing a pretty little song, and hopefully fall asleep so that I can wake up to find all this hidden anxiety disappearing from my body.
  • Pisces: Maybe if I take another wrong turn, I'll forget. Maybe if I wander so deeply I forget who I am, it will be okay, long enough for me to sustain the rest of the day. Maybe. Just maybe.

Ok I do this so i feel like Tim would do this but when he (me too I guess) shower when he's tired he sits on the ground and you know it's warm and rushing water sounds so he would lean up on the wall and sometime fall asleep but catch himself like shit I can't fall asleep I'm in the damn shower I'll drown. But once he conks out and like jason knocks on the door "Timmy... It's been 45 minutes... I left my toothbrush in there..."

ouo Worry not. Bad things may sometimes happen on this comic, but they always lead to good things. So here! Let me prophesize a few good things that will happen in this comic in no particular order~!!!

The translucent composer will appear again soon.

The water vegetable will serenade thousands of fools.

The friend of the relative of the innocent youth will have broken bones, by bones, and make great friends with bones.

The liquid will become solid when hope returns.


I feel that as long as the Shire lies behind, safe and comfortable, I shall find wandering more bearable: I shall know that somewhere there is a firm foothold, even if my feet cannot stand there again.
