Thanks everyone for your help. I can't help worrying it's so bad for me. I called out of work yesterday (the 9th) due to the horrific night of sleep I got before. At that point it had been 5 days since any rest at all. My boss told me to take it easy and as soon as she said those words, a wave of relief washed over me and at 6am (when I called out) it's like my brain switched off and finally let me sleep. I had broken sleep all the way up till about 11:30am.
I got up, ate some breakfast, showered, and was going to head to the doctor, then I decided to watch tv to wait out the thunderstorm. At 1:15 i ended up zonking out on the couch until 3:30. hehe.
Went to the doctor later, she prescribed some more Ativan to help calm my nerves. Only to be used at bedtime and .5mg should do it. She said to take two tonight so that my body gets fully rested..
I took it at 10:15, and was knocked out by 11:15 (i had to take two but spaced them apart). I slept all night until my alarm went off. It's crazy how fast the pills worked. I don't even remember closing my eyes.
She said to take the Ativan at night for 5 days and then hopefully my body will be regulated to sleep again.
Sorry for the long update, it is just nice to get it all written out. I feel better after one night of sleep (about 7-8 hours worth).
