I have had a Alpha delta inversion Sleep disorder my whole life and have no Off switch unless i take a Sedative/Hypnotic Benzodiazepine .
Problem is in june my brain waves Fatally collided and caused me to die in my sleep, when i thought i was waking up from having gone to sleep i was gently told that intact i died was resuscitated dropped into a Coma and i was actually emerging from the coma and not waking up. To cut to the point since this happened my Doctor does not feel its a safe thing for me to take a Benzo and Opiate's at the same time so now i sleep maybe 15 minutes every 6 hours ,have no motivation to do anything,am not interested in anything i just want to hang out in bed waiting for my next fifteen minutes,would it surprise you if i said i have a lot of anxiety about sleeping now and dying again plus i was on sleeping pills the last 34 years and now i'm not,what do i do
