    Advice on eating and sleep please?

    Going through a bit of a time at the moment and I haven't slept much in about a week and I think I've had maybe three meals?
    I'm after some advice on how to acquire an appetite and relax through a very stressful period. I don't know what to do . Even alcohol isn't working.

    A glass of milk before bed always helps me sleep. That and a cookie or bit of bread.

    Also stay hydrated. (No, beer does not count.)

    hhhmmm.... I took a Restivit last night normally knocks me out...but nothing . Alcohol wasn't working hence the pill. I have used hot milk before but I just can't stomach solids at the moment. (keep throwing up.) Normally I'm a real milkaholic.

    Sounds like rough stuff going on. Sorry to hear that.
    Bottom line, make sure you hydrate.
    When you get dehydrated all the other crap piles on, and your minerals get all out of whack. Nothing works - digestion, getting rest, keeping your head, all that **** goes out the window.

    When I was younger I had a bottle of Kaolin and Morphine... I just went and checked, let me change the tense, I have a bottle of Kaolin and Morphine which I've always found reliable both for sleeping and for getting back to being able to eat. I suspect it was designed to do both at the same time. It might not be available where you are, the laws keep changing. Don't fly abroad with it.

    I hope you improve soon. And I agree about the hydration bit.

    looking at a post on how to get some sleep at 4 in the morning . Ironic I think .
    Thank you for that beautiful post Spot .....but I'm afraid I can't take Morphine. Last time I had morphine the ambulance had to pull over because my blood pressure was 60 over 40 just after they gave it to me . lol ... wont be doing that again, but at least people know how to knock me off now. So it's Hydration Hydration Hydration

    Learn to meditate and empty your mind. Listen to Enigma.

    Talk to someone.

    Something that helped me some years back, you might want to try.

    When ready to go to bed, lay down, get comfy, lights out, and close your eyes,
    Then simply start to count your breaths.
    breath in, breath out, count, one, two, ...
    Now your mind will take off on something, as soon it does, and you see it happening, just go back an count again. Don't worry about how many breaths you counted, just start over at one, ... two,... etc,
    Each time you start off on something, stop and start to count.
    Don't sweat the distractions, don't sweat the count, just start over and go on.
    It takes a little time, but after a while, you can get all the way up to 4, or 5,.... maybe 6.
    again, don't sweat how many breaths you count, or how often you get distracted, just start over, breathe and count.



    When my counselor first suggested it, I thought it silly. But it actually started working, I'd count, and get off track, start again, and somewhere along the way, I'd wake up a few hours later.

    It's worth a try.

    Have you tried white noise and ear plugs?
    Sad Cannabis is illegal for you Mag.
    I use it nightly, and ear plugs, it turns my brain off and allows for a good sleep.

    Also Chamomile is an option, as is Melatonin.

    Doctors here happily perscribe anti-depressants, but they tell you, you have to wheen yourself onto and off of them.... NO THANK YOU

    Have you got a domestic violence police officer to help you?

    Have you got a support network of friends? Or have you been isolated?

    Have you joined an online forum for support, other than us here.
