Hello Peter. Unfortunately some doctors have something against lorazepam, Clonazepam and other benzo's.  However sometimes if you bug them enough and state how it used to help, then they sometimes will prescribe it.All you can do is ask. Take Care. paul m

Hello Peter. I never got a good nights sleep either whenever I've had to stay at a sleep clinic (4 times). I also hate being forced to get up at 6am , not to mention being wired before 10pm. I hope that you get a good result from the clinic. Take Care paul m

Hello Peter. Sometimes I think that I'm losing my memory too. However my wife forgets things on about the same pace that I do so I figure it's just a symptom of getting older. In regards to going into a room and forgetting why I was there happens to me too (my wife also). I also tend to lose things , like the car in a big parking lot. I find that as I age I have to stop and fix in my mind where there car is otherwise I have no clue which part of the lot I left it in. Take Care. paul m

Hello Peter. I've never sleep walked, but I'm sure that it must be unnerving. Take Care. paul m

Hello Dragonfly. I don't know what I would do if I lost my spouse, so you have my sympathies. How am I doing? Sort of like the weather this yr. Some good days but a lot of days with dark clouds. No good reason for that either, usually I'm down for a while in the spring but by now I usually feel better. I do feel better most days, but for some reason not all of them.
 However I'll just have to concentrate on the good and try and forget the bad. Take Care. paul m

Sorry to hear about your fall. One of the tough parts about getting older is losing our balance for no apparent reason or for reasons that are diagnosed. I broke my wrist in April when my right foot didn't move where I wanted it too. I knew the reason (parkinson) but it still didn't help with the pain. Fortunately it was a very minor break.

 I wish you well on your medication change. Take Care. paul m

Hello Peter. I wish your brother all the best. Take Care. paul m

Hello Momfeelinglost. I haven't seen too many promises that even give mental health much money right away. Most of it is promised much later , some as late at 2028. Mental health seems to be a side note this election, at least that is my opinion. Take Care. paul m

Hello Dragonfly. I agree with you that this is a good place to post. In regards to my health, well I'm getting older and I'm not doing so gracefully LOL. It seems that every time I take a step forward something happens. Broke my wrist 2 wks ago and that seems to be how the last 6mths have gone. Nothing tragic or horrifying, just a lot of problems. The good news is that between the cancer (treated last fall) and the after effects of the treatments, I lost 45 lbs and it was weight that I needed to lose. So I guess that is the bright side. Take Care. paul m

Hello Dragonfly. When you said

 "I am my own worst enemy. I want things done yesterday. I have to take better care of myself or I am not good to anyone and mostly myself. I feel selfish when I don't pitch in. I guess I have to consider my age and my health problems. I can't do what they do. It is very frustrating to not do what I used to do."

 I often feel the exact same way. While I'm slowly getting back on my feet after having cancer treatments last fall, I'm progressing far too slowly to suit me. My other ailments seem to be bothering me now as well, but at least I'm still walking so I guess I should be happy. Take Care. paul m

Hello Dragonfly. April and even May have always been tough times of year for me.  While it's a time of year when most pick up, I seem to run down. But I know that June is not far ahead and I'm looking forward to that. I'm also looking forward to camping. Take Care. paul m

Hello Peter. I hope that your brother responds well to treatments. Take Care. paul m
