Dear Anonymous,
Thank you for choosing health care magic as a forum to get answer to your queries..Many a times in life we may go through certain stressful phases or emotional difficulties which may affect our physical health too, like it is affecting your sleep patterns. Good sleep is in turn essential for maintaining a healthy mind and body. Sometimes it might be difficult to share the nautre of your problem in open question box so I suggest you should see a clinical pscyhologist to get your problem assessd and gain help or helpful references.. Since you say the domestic problem that is bothering you has otherwise been sorted and something similar has happend to you 25 years back but currently you cant stop thinking about it which is causing you sleeplessness , it could be the part an anxiety or depressive episode. You are 53 years as you state so you maybe in or nearing menopause stae which leads to a lot of hormonal changes leading to our own stress coping resources starting to fail us.
Please do see a specialist and get a thorough assessment to lead a healthy life. ALso, Do let us know how you were helped and what were the results of your meeting with a specialist.

I have recently been very depressed. And when I am happy, i am easily brought down within minutes. Also, I seem to have no motivation for most things anymore. I am 15 years old, and i usually enjoy going to school to see my friends and now, i barely want to get up in the mornings. One of the most common thoughts in my head is suicide and i have cut my wrists once or twice thinking it might help me gain control of something, but to no avail. My friends notice things are different and are constantly asking me if i am okay. My mother is completely against the idea of me possibly being mentally depressed...and tells me its just a stage everyone goes through and it will go away soon...i also deal with a lot of bullying at school for my weight and my looks and everything someone can possibly think of...i ve been called every name you can imagine by fellow classmates...please help me...whats wrong with me...?

My doctor thinks I have adrenal fatigue or insufficiency after coming off a week of Prednisone (which was for sinusitis that hadn t resolved after 4 courses of Augmentin.) Symptoms included aching glands around head and shoulders, lightheadedness, dizziness, insomnia, terrible fatigue, strange aches here and there. I also have had cognitive issues - losing track of what I am talking about mid sentence. CT scan yesterday showed that the paranasal sinses are clear now and all blood tests, FBC, iron, thyroid etc were normal. My doctor has prescribed a lower dose of Prednisone for 3 weeks to kick start the Adrenal glands. Prior to my problem with sinusitis, I have had at least a year of stress due to grief, supporting others through grief, daughter getting married, changes at work and a greatly increased workload where I don t have time for leisure. I am 49 and mother to 3. I work full time.I have started the low dose prednisone but am worried that it will cause more problems. Should I stay on it?
