Thanks, all of you. Yes things def seem to get magnified in the middle of the night! ( I have two slow release madopar at bedtime and have found they help with my shakes and jerks, usuall, but not the insomnia.)
I can't watch the telly in the night incase I disturb the rest of the family. I've tried the music but that seems to concentrate my mind on the stupid thoughts.
My nice consultant always greets me with, "come in, let's have a sherry!" it's our joke but it is also his serious suggestion for my insomnia. I've tried it even though I don't like the taste of alcohol and it leaves me feeling like a zombie the next day! I don't like the idea of sleeping pills yet, I might need them more later on. So, I guess I'll just have to get on with it,
Yes a night time sort of chat spot would be great., at least with the forum we can press the off button when we've heard enough of each other's moans and groans.
I'm really glad I've joined the forum at last, it's good to know that there are lots of us in the same club!!!! I have felt very alone till now. The only people who can truly appreciate how it feels to on the receiving end of pd are people who also have it.
