Default sleep

so, i'm back to my "phase" or "cycle" or whatever it is you want to call it of having to take pills to go to sleep. does anyone have to do that? i have anxiety so bad that i have to dope myself up just to think about sleep. i wake up anxious to begin with and am on celexa but i go through these phases where even the celexa doesn't help so i end up taking klonopin before bedtime so i can sleep and then i only sleep well for about 4 hours and that's it. i hate it. it seems to go in cycles. don't know why. maybe i should start keeping a journal. i know why february bothers me but it isn't always in february. it's all throughout the year. i'll go for weeks at a time and then i'll be fine for weeks at a time. weird. this is one of the bad times... :cry: i'm really tired. i can usually "talk" myself out of my anxiety attacks but not these. i am so damn sick and tired of them but i get so tired physically that i just give up and take the pills every night just so i can get some sleep so i can work every day and function on a daily basis... aaarrrggghhh...................................... .this sucks!

aww gee I know winter makes it hard for me- I depend on my
anxiety pills too for sleep- So I know what your going through.
A journal might be good- I do. or at least try to
I think sometimes winter can make it seem like nights are longer-
are you uptight about work the next day? that can do it too.

no, not about work, i actually get anxious about going to sleep. (nightmares :cry: ) i couldn't sleep last night so i stayed up till about 1 am writing in a journal, in fact finished one journal and am ready to start a new one... :)
and, yes, winter is always worse for me, as it is for lots of ppl w/depression....

hey bent, i take sleeping pills, i get myself too wound up about everything that's going on. or i get stuck in this mindset where i think there are bugs in my house, i start by thinking they're is one on the floor, then lots, then i get all paranoid that they're everywhere and i can't sleep.
