    ✘ Not a client

    OK, firstly the good: Started and completed Martin’s invaluable course last year. Through perseverance and acceptance, things started to improve; the odd good night turned into ten straight nights of sleep, which then turned into a flabbergasting 5 weeks of sleep – victory! I no longer lingered on this forum, rarely thought of sleep – you know, normal.
    Now the not so good: currently in a flow of bad nights for seemingly no reason. This has activated the ‘oh no it’s back’ fear, like the clown in IT (terrible analogy, as I don’t sleep near a drain). I’m returning to SR and SC which, for me, is the ONLY route to success. Currently, being a good student; practicing SR, going to bed with eyes barely open, exhausted, only to have my hyper awareness ping! Then up and back, and up… you know the drill. I guess I’m writing through the frustration, as – and I know its common – you believe you got this thing licked. I mean, 5 weeks… I will plough on as it’s worked before and for sufferers out there, keep going. Just airing my frustration. Thanks for reading. Grrrr….

    Setbacks are completely normal — nobody enjoys a great night of sleep, every single night! So, you certainly are NOT back to square one! You are doing the exact right thing — you are implementing the same techniques that you implemented in the past and proved to be helpful. They were helpful before, so they will be helpful again. Keep looking forward, not back, and your sleep will soon get back on track!
