    Hi ppl

    It started before my delivery had 3 sleepless nights …… and then after my baby i was able to sleep well my delivery was very normal vaginalwith less time pain .. was easy …. then after a couple of days while i was feeding in the night my dad had a severe stomqch pain which gave me fear to my nerves… he recovered well but for me i had negative thoughts if him getting worse as a result i had no sleep or juz 1/2 hr foe some days…. later on even wen i try to sleep i get a jerk a wake up… dads fear went away

    Then i started researchin in dr google about insomnia how to sleep methids etc etcfor 20 days less sleep

    And came across no of post which gave me jerks

    This is as follows

    1.a man was insomani fpr 32 years he slept for 2 hrs a day…what if i be like tat
    2. Sleep deprivation outcomes…
    3. Medications dodn work for many will it be for me etc etc

    Then was on anxit medicen for which i slept a day and later was on 4 iv injections
    But after tat i read about medications outcome and got phobia
    As a result went to psychatist she suggested some ssri and a .5 sleeping pill which ddisnt work after to increased to 10 mg i slept for 3 hrs now juzz the medicencens for 15 days i was compled to wean

    Then from day 1 i will get a dream and sleep.dream and slepp so was for many days

    Suddenly i came to know that if we get more.dreams it doesnt mean we get ggood sleep which gave me anxity more and then i read about eeg and had a feel wat if i dont sleep properly
