    ✘ Not a client

    It started with a Colonoscopy and had a endocrine polyp it was benign and was followed up by a Ct scan and tumor marker but I got worried thinking it was cancer because my sister died from Colon cancer and now I worry about everything even sleep it turned into anxiety and it’s been affecting my sleep ever since. And I don’t know how to turn it off. I don’t use no medication I just try and deal with it the best I can. It’s a struggle because I be really tired at work. Any suggestions?

    Hi Scorpio68,

    Welcome to the forum!

    It’s not uncommon for stressful life events to cause a temporary disruption in your sleep but sleep is usually restored to normal once the trigger has passed. When your thoughts and behaviors toward sleep change, your sleep issue can perpetuate itself.

    It’s great to hear that you’re not reliant on sleeping meds since we know that medication can’t generate sleep anyway. Have you explored implementing CBT-I techniques that tackle the root cause of insomnia – your thoughts and behaviors? How are you trying to manage your thoughts/anxiety since we aren’t able to turn our thoughts off?
