What you are describing is called hyper-arousal. It is one of the more common symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. People that have this are in a constant state of high alert. It's dangerous to wake us suddenly because we're ready to defend ourselves. :2hands:

 

This can be really bad for relationships. Try explaining to your S.O. why you bloodied their nose at 3:00am. Better yet, try explaing it to the cops. :(

 

They treat me for it with Seroquel.

Hey Bard...

 

A TOTALLY logical explanantion can be found for this, and I think you can figure it out. In fact, I'm sure you already have... but trust issues are evident here also... like maybe if you trusted the people you lived with more you wouldn't need to have your guard up so much and so often... You can't possibly get GOOD rest like that anyway :(

 

:hug: Viv... watching your back!

It sounds like I may be affected too, although I've never realized it until your post that other people were affected too. For many years, It has not been a good idea to wake me up if you are within swinging distance. And what a shocking coincidence, It started shortly after my 16th birthday, so I can see how it can be related to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I actually broke my cuz's nose one time when he tried to wake me up after I had had a severe migraine one time. Now the only way he ever wakes me up is with loud noises at a safe distance, or by turning off my music when its on loud--the complete silence wakes me up faster than anything.

 

And I can see where Seroquel would definitely work for that. I like Seroquel for it's sleeping effects, and it works really good if you extend it with some Diazepam.

 

 

anyway, Bard, TY for bringing this up. You are not alone!!! I also remeber my Aunt almost getting decked one time too, but she was smarter about it. she poked me with a broomstick, and I grabbed it and busted it on the doorframe she was standing in before I realized where I was and who she was.

 

And I just gotta say, It is not a fun way to wake up. Going from a sound sleep to defensive mode so quick raises your adrenaline to the point where it is hard to calm down again. Acheiving sleep again is almost impossible once you've been woken up that way.

Hey guys, I'm so sorry you all have this problem :(

 

***checks to make sure they're awake and paying attention*** :hug:

 

Perhaps the med. would be a good idea, Bard. Or else trying to sort out your feelings etc.

 

Anyway I hope you feel better, take care

Kevin
