I am 48 years old female. I am having troubles with sleeping

Customer Question

I am 48 years old female. I am having troubles with sleeping all the time, including days when I am supposed to work but can't keep my eyes open long enough to get ready. When I do go, all I can think about it how soon it's over so I can go home to bed. Myay be menopause or something else. When I get to bed, I can't get to sleep despite being on 2 zopiclone as well as 2 sleep ease and a couple drinks. When I do occasionally doze off, I am awakened by nightmares. My Daddy is going through tests, has been taken by ambulance a few times with chest pains. No clue what is going on. My Mother inmLaw has had spinal surgery to bypass the Timor on and around the spine or stabilize it. Now she has blood clots and her left leg is dead. I had pneumonia for 2 weeks and we lost our dog of 17 years. 2 MUCH.! How do I deal with, come to terms with, accepts, all of this and move on? 2 months ago I had pneumonia for 3 weeks and I don't know how to deal with everything? If you need more info before you can help? I'll give it all to you!much more than what I will put here for all to read.
