Hi Tot, thank you so much, to be honest I think I found myself at at a unknown point and when the suggestion to start the meds was the plan I never questioned it, however, after reading some of the posts and doing a little light reading I am hoping that if the diagnosis is confirmed that these meds will continue and not change them to the other he listed in my letter - read a little on that and don’t think I like the sound of it Hopefully it won’t be too much longer for the follow up at least then I’ll know and can get my head around it. Thank you again for your reply, take care
Further update had five bourbons through the day and slept soundly until 4:45am
You are more than welcome and I think you will be fine in managing your PD your posts already sound as if you are calmer and not so ‘rabbit caught in headlights.’
The early days can cause a whole mix of emotion and uncertainty and it is not surprising it causes such turmoil. Good luck and let us know how you are getting on and should you need it in the future the forum is open 24/7.
That’s not bad. It is hard not to think there is something in it.
Not so good but you have at least had a couple of reasonable nights and it may just be a blip!
Thanks Tot! Definately an initial OMG moment but as you say until I know what I’m dealing with for definate just put one foot in front of the other (all be it sometimes a little off balance!) and keep going
A relaxing camomile tea with milk about two hours before bed and a banana an hour before bed seem to help. The banana contains a chemical that is meant to help you kip because your body changes it to melatonin, a hormone that helps you sleep. Zzzzz…
This is extremely interesting to me as insomnia has a my greatest enemy for 4 years as well as sleep fighting (actually physically fighting in my sleep including punching at full force a concrete floor) amongst countless other crazy dreams.
I’m on melatonin and zopiclone which comes with the side effects price and if you have actually stumbled onto something (no pun intend) I think I’m going to have a try.
Should I start with say half a pack or just a couple, gaining weight is not an issue for me as I’m built like the gable end of a crisp in fact I spend most nights munching through 6 packs of monster munch along with 8 wotsits.
Seems to hit an hour or so after taking, I have been having 2-3 randomly late afternoon until bedtime, sometimes with a drink but usually just the bourbon. Mcvities tasties are the ones that I have been using, others not yet proven
