I had a meeting with a pulmonologist, (who is the gatekeeper for sleep studies, which I thought maybe I need) and he said a few things that really triggered me- namely that depression and anxiety are not true psychiatric illnesses, and that its no wonder I'm not sleeping because "don't I know what all my meds are doing to me brain?".
usually I can just reject ignorance and stay focused on what I need, which I am still doing, and, I feel so helpless about sleep.
Eric, you suggested mirtazapine, do you mean instead of prozac, or just as a sleep aid? I don't know about thorazine, I'm, not psychotic. just tired :)
