We're you able to discuss your anxiety with the nurses? I was told I wasn't able to go to Ellen Barron until I was on meds due to pnd, anxiety and a high score on the Edinburg pn scale.
no way would I have been able to do it without meds.
I agree with pp, in order for your DS sleep to work and to feel calm and relaxed, meds will be beneficial. You've come so far, I would really recommend chatting to the doc about meds.
