I've been seeing an ND (naturopathic dr.) for a few years after my health just kept getting worse and worse and I got to where I couldn't tolerate any prescription drugs. My health has actually improved, although I still am by no means 100% (I have CFS). I also have such constant stressors (including an upcoming move...big, big changes), and I am constantly, 24 x 7, on edge between all of that and my nonstop, NEVER quiet, NEVER not moving high-functioning autistic 4 y.o. daughter. I have plenty of valid situational reasons to be teetering on the verge of a nervous breakdown, and I am fortunate I haven't gotten there and don't plan to. Still, though, I am so on edge all the time, my sleep is light and restless, and I wake up with my heart racing, ready to go back to bed after an hour because I am so fried already. I feel like my nervous system is so used to being "wired" it has a mind of its own. Yoga, exercise, etc. used to help but now anything just amps me more. My adrenals are shot and have been for years, too, literally. I'm wondering if I should try pharmaceuticals, esp. something like Klonopin, etc. (tolerated meds. of that class as muscle relaxants/sleep aids after surgery) to get me through this rough time. I hate even opening the MD door again, though, and we are moving out of the area, so part of me wonders if I should wait 'til I get settled. On the other hand, I am really rattled and get overstimmed so often now I am sick of feeling so miserable. Thanks for any advice!
