    Hi Jan,

    Sorry you're feeling low. It's really hard when you're losing the ability to do things you did automatically before. You grieve for what you lost.

    Sleep is so important, both mentally and physically. Do you know why you're not sleeping; pain, sleeping position, stress?

    Your OT can help with aids. Could a family member spend time with you to get a sense of how difficult your life is practically, let alone emotionally?

    Thinking of you,
    Love Ellie.

    Hi Jan:

    If you don't sleep well than you will have problems during the day time.

    I listen to talking books during the night as it takes my mind off things.

    I also take Larasipan about every third night to relax me and help me sleep.

    I could not imagine what some of you go through living on your own.

    Love Terry

    Good Afternoon Jan,

    It must be difficult living on your own and I know what you mean about becoming tired after performing household chores, I'm finding most beyond me now. You could ask your GP to give you something to help you sleep, Zopiclone seems to work well and should help you through a difficult patch and you can always come on line here for company.

    Thank you for your quick reply, it's good to speak to people who understand, I read blog every day for information and I have found it very useful, have tried to get family to read up on mnd but somehow I feel that they still don't fully understand what is happening to me. Will speak to mnd connect . X JAN Q.

    Hi Jan Tiredness comes with the illness, I'm afraid. No one will appreciate the daily struggle. You need help. Maybe give something for the family to read on mnd . Speak to mnd connect and your social worker. Dude x

    Jan Q. help!

    Hi all , I am having trouble sleeping at moment and feel tired out very quickly when I do the smallest of chores, any suggestions with regards to possible medication. I am struggling in as much as I have deteriorated a lot in the last month mobility wise and now my speech going quickly,feel very down and as I live on my own and feel family don't realise that I am struggling so much as they don't see me trying to look after myself, I don't feel as though I can cope at moment. Sorry to have a moan I have been so independent until now and suddenly I am in need of some help. X JAN Q.
