    Hi there, my name is Paula and I live in Buckinghamshire, about 25 miles from London. I've had problems sleeping on and off throughout my life but when depression hit me badly it got a lot worse. The two seem very closely linked with me, although I'm not sure which one causes which!

    I'm now working as a freelance writer from home, which is great as if I do go through a bad sleep pattern I can do my work in the middle of the night instead of laying stressing about not sleeping. It's made a huge difference to my quality of life 🙂

    I live in the country and I love walking and nature watching. I also read a lot when I can, love music and (like Yam) I play Rock Band (but on the Wii). I also do amateur dramatics and am playing Hippolyta in an extract from A Midsummer Night's Dream in March.

    I'm honest and upfront about my depression and my sleep problems. Happy to share tips, successes, failures, ideas, anything…

    Look forward to seeing this community grow 🙂

    Thanks for introducing yourself, Paula – and for the shout-out to the Wii 😉

    It's great to have you as a member and I'm confident that with your help (and that of our other early adopters) the Insomnia Land project will succeed.

    Nice to hear from you. My son and I are the only Americans in the family; all of my mom's family live in England in the Northumberland area.

    Nice to meet you! I'm a writer, too! It's pretty much the ideal career for an insomniac, but I don't think it helps my sleep patterns at all! What do you write?

    I mainly write for clients – anything from corporate brochures, web content, press releases, articles and educational materials (I'm an ex TEFL teacher). Unfortunately my own writing has taken a bit of a back seat due to time restraints but I want to get started on the novel this year!

    Does it feel good to be writing, or does it feel different when you're doing it for a client? I wonder whether it feels like more of a chore when given specific topics and subjects as you have less artistic freedom.
