Hello Vai,

I do understand.

Stress and anxiety seem to be the cause for your behavior. Less and disturbed sleep increases the severity for sure - as you rightly think.

You need to have quality sleep at-least for 6-7 hours at a stretch. Have balanced diet, adequate fluid/ avoid alcohol, smoking. Yoga, meditation help to stay away from anxiety too. Talk to your girl friend and she will definitely understand what you are going through. You will not lose her for sure.

I would also get few blood tests to rule out thyroid imbalance/ anemia or vitamin deficiency.

Wish you well.
