Can you list some psychiatric disorders that involve sleep but is NOT a sleep disorder?

Asked: Can you list some psychiatric disorders that involve sleep but is NOT a sleep disorder?

Bipolar can cause sleep difficulties both in the manic and depressive phases.
Schizophrenia can cause alertness, preoccupation with voices, visions, worry, communication with the forces of the disorder. Not sure if you mean over or under sleeping or trouble staying asleep or early morning waking?

Depression (unipolar as well as bipolar) tends to cause early Morning waking and usually lack of sleep but in atypical cases will give rise to excessive sleeping (avoiding life and the problems)

A number of personality disorders can cause sleep difficulties, with schizoid, schizotypal having some schizophrenic type symptoms. Borderline can lead to depression and worrying can stop anyone from sleeping.

It would be easier to advise you if you clarified the exact nature of the sleep disorder you are experiencing.

How can I convince my partner to talk to a doctor about his sleep apnea?

Asked: How can I convince my partner to talk to a doctor about his sleep apnea?

Maybe by explaining to him how upsetting this is to and how much it impacts your sleep as well will persuade him to consider seeing a doctor about the problem. He might also have concerns about using a cpap so you could also learn more about them to help alleviate that anxiety.

Snoring and sleep apnea can cause other health problems and it is important that he take action to improve his breathing. You can try to get him a wedge-shaped pillow to put him in a partially upright position to help in the meantime but it is still important to discuss this with a doctor.

How to get insomnia and or bags under your eyes?

Asked: How to get insomnia and or bags under your eyes?

er.. insomnia is NOT lack of sleep. its not even 'inability' to sleep.

its being unable to sleep when necessary, or having unrestful sleep(IE: wake up every hour or so, or just simply cannot sleep until exhausted beyond healthy, where you simply just cannot operate)

its not something anyone should WANT to acquire.

if u simply want bags under your eyes(WTF are you some emo tard? Sorry had to ask) just stay up for 3 days straight.

Diagnosed with bipolar disorder?

Asked: Diagnosed with bipolar disorder?

After seeing a family doctor today for what I thought was a sleep disorder, I was diagnosed with adult onset ADHD, sever anxiety disorder and severe bipolar disorder. I'm a 22 year old mother of two with no insurance. My doctor suggested the name of a therapist to me and a list of drugs to research. I hardly get by as it is, I have no money for counseling. I did research the list of medications like I was told, and a lot of them scare me. I'm simply at a loss.

struggling badly… loosing sense of reality……… im 21?

Asked: struggling badly… loosing sense of reality……… im 21?

Please be sensitive. i have a history of trauma since i was 11. I have been in and out of therapy since i was 13. one of my friends committed suicide recently and two weeks later i was at a club and was sexually assaulted (he didnt fully rape me, but he rubbed my clit in front of other people". I was drinking alcohol and blacked out at some point i thought i was drugged because i was feeling sick for 2 days after that. I havent been sleeping well. I have been staying up late in the morning. I probably get 3-6 hours of sleep. Anyways, i sometimes feel nauseous when i wake up and when i eat so i throw it up (purposefully). I've had an eating disorder before, so that's how i cope. I also have IBS. Today I had an accident on myself :/. My stomach hasn't been feeling well so ive had diarrhea. Anyways, i feel paranoid like somebody is watching me and following me and I feel scared to be alone in the night. I was in class today and felt like i was disassociating with reality. I just felt like i wasnt there. Sometimes i space out and my mood has been fluctiating. From sad to happy… to nothing. Sometimes I feel invisible and do drink alcohol to a risky point. I just feel like i might have developed something worse from all these years of struggling with depression. I was diagnosed with major depression then dysthimia. In the past ive had episodes of psychosis where i was seeing and hearing things. Ive been hospitalized for being "suicidal" but i really wasnt. Anyways… i think over the years ive developed bipolar disorder or depression. I lash out at my family and even though i used to love my sister i hate her now and feel anger towards her. I'm seeing a counselor, but should i go to a psychiatrist? im scared i dont know what's going on???

Sometimes I question whether I’m entirely sane?

Asked: Sometimes I question whether I’m entirely sane?

Some things that might contribute are being diagnosed with ADD and stress disorders for which I take meds (adderal for ADD), I get about 4 hours of sleep a night (I'm 17), I've had 2 concussions, and I am currently coming out of "severe depression". Every now and then, maybe once every few weeks, I'll have a night where I don't feel entirely..sane, to be blunt. What I mean is I won't be able to focus at all, not like I'm bored, or keep getting distracted, but my mind jumps from one thing to the next so fast that I literally can't keep up, and my arms and hands will shake. The interesting thing is, I've played piano for 10 years, and these nights usually come after a particularly frustrating night of piano, and the feeling is amplified by piano, and when my hands shake, my fingers move as if i'm playing piano and it's really hard to control them. So I usually end up sitting in my room listening to piano music while rocking back and forth, hands shaking uncontrollably until it stops (usually about an hour). So yeah, should I be worried about this? Because when these nights come I genuinely do question if i'm entirely sane. Long story short, this song is what it feels like in my head.
