Exclamation InSoMnIaC o.o and night terrors HELP - January 3rd 2014, 03:50 AM

I cannot sleep. I keep hAVING NIGHT TERRORS, and so many thoughts are swirling around my head. Yes I am an insomniac, and no I have not slept in 6 days and its starting to take a toll. I'm really tired. I want to sleep so bad and I can feel my body shutting down. My parents won't take me to the doctor and none of the sleeping medications are working. none of them. I've tried them all. I feel like I'm going to die please help.

My best advice is to see a doctor and be honest to them. Prolonged lack of sleep is not healthy for the body. Let them know the sleep meds are not working and they may try to figure something else out. If you have not already, let the doctors know about the night terrors too.

Why won't your parents take you to a doctor?

I've had insomnia since i was like 4 and have been on pills for it ever since. There are a lot of sleeping pills and I doubt you've been on all of them. I've been on tons and they stop working and I always have to go back to clonadine which is actually a blood pressure medicine but it works for sleep too and most doctors don't prescribe it for sleep so you might want to try that.

But i would sit down and talk to your parents and ask them to take you to the doctors and tell them that you haven't slept in 6 days. They will probably listen and take you.


We may shine, we may shatter,
We may be picking up the pieces here on after,
We are fragile, we are human,
We are shaped by the light we let through us,
We break fast, cause we are glass.
Cause we are glass.
