What is Knocking me out?


What is knocking me out?

Within about twenty to thirty minutes of taking my night time tablets, I’m done! My body is not responding, it’s not my own! My jaw feels like it is becoming fixed, my brain is dull and fading, and I’m losing control. 

Getting in bed is a priority after taking my tablets because otherwise, I’m spending the night stuck in my chair!

I don’t sleep as I should, or as I wished I did. I go between dramatic moments of nothing and awake. There is no in-between. At the moment I’m slowly coming off Lorazepam, and although the second month has been a lot better than the first, it is giving me problems in my sleeping pattern. Rather than this dramatic state of being dead, or wide awake, I now seem to drift between the two with no reference of sleep and awake. This leaves me feeling like I’m always trying to get to sleep! The nights are long! Very long! I wake around the same time of 4 am. 

I’ve done another article about my sleep.
