Welcome to the Forums - I'm really glad you found us. You must be exhausted - and I would imagine very frustrated.
Would I be right in saying you have come to the Forums to find out how others have managed sleep and also to connect with others?
We can point you in the direction of some helpful discussions here, if that's what you're after?

Okie dokie . . . here we go:
- What brings you to the Forums?
At 49 years of age, I have been turning to my family and friends for so many years. Sure, I have had more than one therapist, but you simply cannot beat peer to peer counselling. I am hear to listen, to learn, and to hopefully offer my story in snippets at a time which may just resonate with others.

I LOVE car racing
I LOVE my wife and Stepson
I LOVE my daughters

Apart from family
My 3 main loves are music, cats and books.
The bonding factor on this forum is that we all are surviving/suffering/enduring/admitting to or coping with some issues around mental health.

Welcome to the forums, it's great to have you here.
Moving can be a challange, it sounds like you are trying to find ways of coping with moving to a new area. Change can take time to settle into feeling more familiar. I'm glad to hear the area you live in is beautiful, mother nature has many gifts to offer us.
I'm wondering who you connected with here on the forums after reading their post? If you would like to tell us who that person is you can use the @ symbol and then click on the persons username which then highlights their username and they will be aware of the connection. Please let me know if that needs clarification.
Welcome again and we look forward to hearing from you when you can.

hi I'm cricket, I have just dicovered this forum. Thankyou to all the people who have read my first post and responded. I have lived with mental illness since i was 17 and am 53 now. i live a very closed off life and find it hard to go out into the community and partake in daily life out there. I seem to miss out on a lot because of this. I've been this way for so long that its hard to imagine there is any other way to live. I am lonely a lot of the time and i have no friends as I have just moved with my husband to a new area. I would appreicated people to chat to as well as any ideas on how i can reach out into the community.
3 things I love.
