If you are staying up all night, you probably need some sleep medication. Trazodone often works well for this--it doesn't have the side effects that benzos have. Another good one is Ambien. If you don't want to go that route you might try this: go to a health food store and get the following: melatonin, valerian root, and kava kava--these will help you relax and fall asleep, I promise.

> Scared. Last night was a LONG night. Absolutely no sleep. don't want to go back to that place again. The clock was in slow motion. No special ruminating thoughts, just that inner feeling of being to awake in the brain. Today felt like I had a ball and chain attached and the heat didn't help. Why does this happen? See above post--it has been slowly creeping up. I just want to scream. Also the great new therapist is suggesting that I have a few more EMDR sessions and then transition to a new therapist (supposed to be good but does not do EMDR). Is it possible that the few widely spaced sessions will be helpful, or not? I wish someone could just figure out this medication and sleep thing. It's been 8 mos on Remeron--nothing else. Any help Toby? Starting to feel lost again.
