introducing myself!

Hello all, I don't know whether I have Ms or not. I'm too much stressed and while simply going thru sites I found this network. Is it OK to be here/ is it a suitable solution? I don't know!! My problem is I couldn't get a sound sleep. In late nights I woke up suddenly and I couldn't sleep after that. Lot of worries will go thru my mind. In the morning I get up from the bed too tired . I working as a lecturer. With a tired mind and body I can not deliver lectures to my students. Thus becoming a joker to them.

Hi @manoos and welcome. Yes, this is the right place for anyone who has, may have or is connected with MS. Whether you have MS or not, I would suggest that the amount of stress and worry, which is suggested in your post, would potentially cause any number of medical conditions to affect you. So, primarily you need to get that under control and get some quality sleep.

You need to resolve the causes of the worry and stress. I always reflect on this quote:- "........ grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference". Reinhold Niebuhr

Or as I've seen it written "the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to remember to hide the bodies...." no harm in letting off a bit of stress here, but teaching yourself *not* to stress about things that don't need stressing about... priceless!! I'm still working on it, but will eventually get there I'm sure.

Sometimes your body gets on this bad schedule and you have to figure out how to change it. I know when I use to have this happen I would do a lot of physical work and when I went to bed I would be tired but not overly tired. That is harder to do now that I have MS, I bought one of those white noise machines. If I have a hard time falling asleep or wake up in the middle of the night I just lay there and concentrate on the noise. Sometimes it takes 30 minutes but I do fall asleep. It took about a week before it really took effect. Potter
