Risperdal (Risperidone)

Whatever the cause of your insomnia, if you want to sleep better at night, it’s time to get into the driving seat and decide where you really want to go. What’s missing from your life that would give you some real joy or peace of mind? Whatever it is needs to provide a contrast with your daily routine, not more of the same.
If you’re a rusher-round, make time to do something totally unconnected with work. Do you do anything creative? Could you spend more time with your family — or less, if you’re constantly fulfilling their needs? Are you really doing what you want to do, or have you some unfulfilled dream that your busy lifestyle, or those inner voices, have so far prevented you from achieving? If so, what first step can you take towards it?
If you’re the unadventurous type, what could you do over this three-week period that would be a real challenge? Write a list of possibilities, things you’ve maybe thought of doing — if you only had the confidence, (They could include signing on at a self-assertion class.)
I’m not suggesting that you instantly chuck your job and family and go off to paint in Tahiti, like Gauguin. But we sometimes deny ourselves what we really want by telling ourselves it’s impossible. Or we find perfectly reasonable excuses for not getting it, either because the idea of change is threatening, or we’ve simply got into the habit of self-denial.
Write a list of things you haven’t done but would like to do. Be as fantastic as you like — if a journey to the moon comes to mind, write it down. At this stage, simply allow the ideas to flow, and if a critical inner voice jumps in to tell you not to be so silly, thank it and tell it it’s your life, and you’re in charge.
When you’ve written everything you can think of, look at that list as if it had been written by another person whom you are helping. What is really possible? Maybe it’s too late to become a prima donna or ballerina: but perhaps you could join a singing or dancing class (either of which would help you to sleep by using your energy in a healthy way). You want to write a novel, but feel you’re not talented enough? You’ll never know until you’ve written it. You’d like a more exciting social life, but you never get any invitations? Remember, you’re in the driving seat: take the first step and ask round the people you’d like to see more of.
Rushers-round may need less activity in their schedule, not more. You may be so strongly conditioned towards constant doing that ‘doing nothing’ doesn’t appear on your list; it may actually be quite scary. Yet ‘doing nothing’, allowing yourself a little space, to think, to day-dream, to enjoy a walk in nature, may be just what’s missing.
If you are depressed, it is really important to start moving, whether your depression is due to those inner voices, or to outer circumstances. If it’s caused by unhappy life events like bereavement, redundancy, or divorce, it’s a natural response. It’s true that you do need to go through the grieving process before you feel fully yourself again; this can be true after a relationship breaks up just as much as following a death. But don’t allow it to go on forever. Some people seem to stay stuck in their grief. If this is your case, it’s important to take action to move yourself out of the slough of despond: to leave the unhappy past behind and take on new ventures — a new job, or voluntary work, a new hobby, or any interest that will move you forward and open up new horizons.
Perhaps your depression is due to life circumstances, such as unemployment, or the loneliness of being a single mother with small children. Don’t let depression hold you back from helping yourself. Write down the aspects of your life that are making you unhappy. What can be changed? Can you get together with other people in the same boat to support each other, or join a self-help group? Make some kind of move, however small.
Perhaps you are depressed simply because you’re depressed: you don’t like or love yourself much. Make a point of behaving as if you do. Depressed people often skip meals and don’t bother about looking after their surroundings. A good start to defeating your negative inner voices is to look after yourself: include in your new programme a commitment to preparing proper meals and eating them slowly Invite yourself to a particularly nice meal once a week; give yourself treats. Keep your bedroom and bedlinen tidy, fresh and clean, as if for a valued guest.
As I’ve said earlier, sometimes it’s necessary to get help. It is not a sign of weakness to see a counsellor or psychotherapist. You’ve only got to listen to the radio phone-ins to agony aunts and uncles to realize that you’re not alone in needing help — and also, how helpful even a few minutes with a professional can be. Maybe getting help could be included on your list.
