I'm so unbelievably tired. I feel like I don't grieve normally and with my TBI and other mental health problems it's getting to be way to much. All I want to do is sleep and when I do sleep I have nightmares. I also just eat and eat. I've gained like 8 pounds at least. I feel like my head is somewhere else in space and my body is buried underground and it's really dehumanizing...I'm sorry for the trauma dump but I've had no luck with therapists. I've had 3 cancel on me day of my appointment and now I wont be seen until may. I'm not suicidal but I'm tired of being alive. Is there anything I can do to stop feeling like this.

Dear Scott, I read this post and you are not alone my brother. sometimes you eat to fill an empty space within you, but that space doesn’t seem to get full. I’m having trouble sleeping too. I know it sounds crazy but I burnt white sage around the house as I want to try anything that will help with how I’m feeling. I don’t know if it’s a placebo effect but I felt a little better and slept another couple of hours. I also exercise lots as it helps me forget the pain I’m feeling. when I’m to tired to train, I hold my wife’s hand and we go for a walk and we talk about how much we have achieved as a team. It makes us smile when he have little to smile about at this moment. virtual hugs my brother. I pray each day some of your pain reduces until it is gone!
