Sleep disorder/sleep problems/insomnia/problems getting to sleep and sleeping through the night
Hello first of all
I am new here in the community and maybe someone can give me some advice. My husband passed away about 3 years ago and I had a stroke shortly after. Since that time I have had massive sleep problems / insomnia.
As I have to take medication because of my stroke, I can't take sleeping pills as they don't mix with my other medication. I was once prescribed Zopiclon by my family doctor (very strong sleeping pills), but I stopped taking them after 1 week because the side effects were really bad. I also tried some homeopathic remedies, but none of them were successful.
I am really desperate because I can't get any rest at night and I just can't fall asleep and during the day I can't really take part in life any more because my eyes close from tiredness and I just vegetate. (For this reason, I have been unable to work for about 1.5 years).
I have also posted this emergency call in other forums in the hope of receiving lots of good advice or helpful tips. I would like to talk to other people who are suffering.
I am grateful for any advice
