It may be something more serious than you thought ...

 

Prompt #1 Questions:

  1. Have you, or do you suffer from sleep disorders?
    1. Nothing that has been diagnosed. When I’m depressed I can sleep for over 15 hours straight, when I have anxiety I’m usually up everyday between 3:30am and 5am.
  2. Have you sought treatment for your sleep disorders?
    1. No, I just deal with it the best I can. Typically when I’m happy I deal more with anxiety and being up before I’m ready to be. A lot of times I wake up at 3 and just can’t get my mind to turn off. The depression, I haven’t really dealt much with besides when I’m not living up to my crazy expectations and being hard on myself.
  3. Have you ever had a sleep study on you, and if so, what was recommended?
    1. No, as much as I like science and even though I was almost a nurse, I hate doctors for myself haha.
  4. Has your doctor prescribed medication for your sleep disorder, if so, what has worked for you?
    1. I’ve taken clonazepam for anxiety but that’s about it as far as regulating my sleep goes.
  5. Have you ever tried home remedies to alleviate your sleep disorders? 
    1. Yes, lavender primarily, rubbing the oil on my chest before I sleep.
  6. What’s the longest amount of time you went without sleep?
    1. More than 24 hours but that was when I was in college and crazy busy.
