Home General Exhausted
Report Post

Of course, my night of peace from Bree didn’t happen. I managed to sleep from 1-3, until I woke up for a drink. After staring at the ceiling for at least 40 minutes, Bree came in and didn’t leave. The voices came back around 5:30, also.

I roughly got 4 hours sleep in total last night, which means less than 16 hours of sleep this week total. Needless to say, exhaustion is catching up to me and I fell asleep this afternoon on the sofa for all of 20 minutes before my mum woke me up to pick my brother up from school. Fun.

The voices have been near enough constant all day, and in all honesty this medication can’t come quick enough. I might need to wait until the week after to have my blood test as my Nan has multiple hospital appointments through next week to sort out her radiotherapy.

So while it’s a blessing to not have the needle as soon as I thought I would, it also means I have to wait longer to start the medication. After having the test, I’ll still need to wait for my psychiatrist to get a letter so she can prescribe it which – knowing her – will probably take about a week. So, most likely, I’ll be looking at 3 weeks before starting it. Great.

The voices haven’t been too loud for the last hour or so, and I think I’ll be able to sleep through it. Hopefully I can fall asleep before it gets too noisy and before Bree decides to show up.

Also, I’m sorry for not replying to the comments on my last post. I went to reply to the first one but my phone died and I couldn’t find my charger (I’d left it in the car overnight). But I did read them all this afternoon, and thank you to everyone that commented.

I’m sorry to hear about your lack of sleep. I’ve had a bit of experience with that as well. Just try to get as much sleep as possible, until you get the medication, which is unfortunately a while away. Stay strong and have hope, the medication will do the rest.
