Waking in panic!

So tired of waking in a complete panic. I was having nightmares one of which was that I was back at work which scared the daylights out of me and then I woke up and tried to figure out if I worked or not. Thank God I don’t! I dream this way too many times. Can one have a mental breakdown from such dreams that they bring on panic attacks in the middle of sleeping?

I slept for over 9 hours and feel like crap again. I woke up at 5 AM, but I went to sleep early again last night. Due to a suggestion since my mood stabilizer causes insomnia I take that in the morning now. So that must mean the combo of the 2 mg of clonazepam and 90 mg of Cymbalta is now strong enough to put me to sleep. Yeah and nay. Good and bad. And the mood stabilizer in the day won’t allow a nap. Strong little bugger. At least I am sleeping now.

The cat is glaring at me again. She wants new fresh food non-stop day and night. She has food if she wants to eat.

I want to go back to sleep, but I tried and it didn’t work. Besides I had 9 hours.

    Tessa I find that if I go to bed at 8-9 I wake up at 11pm. I sometimes can’t get to sleep. So… if that happens and trust me it does, I’ll see if my baby sister is up and talk with her or go on youtube or w/e.

      I am only going to bed at 9 PM since I stopped my sleeping pills and moved the mood stabilizer to morning which was obviously causing insomnia and messing with the sleeping pills. Now I am sleeping steadily for more hours, but too much sleep makes me feel just as crappy as not enough. Plus I was used to a nap in the afternoon, but that doesn’t happen either, just an early bedtime now. No one is usually awake when I am having my sleep troubles. So I write stories or poems at that time or catch up on my reading of the blogs.
