So I've never posted in one of these forums, so any information is appreciated.
I have been excessively sleepy during the day for my entire life. I got a sleep study and was diagnosed with idiopathic hypersomnia and prescribed provigil.
At the same time, I can not go to bed on my own until around 4 or 5 in the morning. I lay in bed in the dark for hours, but am never tired at night.
Now on top of all that, every amphetamine or prescribed drug i have used, completely takes away my appetite, to the point where my body is now anorexic and has digestion problems.
All my health issues are ruining my life litterally. I have had to drop out of college, have lost numerous jobs and friends, and am giving up on getting better.
Is there any other option besides medication? What about hypnosis?
can anyone help me who has experienced similar disappointments, or can offer any advice, studies, good doctors etc
