    I have had periodic insomnia for most of my adult life. However, over the past year and a half it has become chronic. I cannot sleep for 2 or 3 nights each week. It is interfering with my work, my social life, and my mood. I know all the things to do and not to do. I have tried just about every medication out there, but I quickly build up a resistance to every med. I have even tried marijuana. Nothing seems to help. Does anyone know of any off-the-beaten-path treatments for severe insomnia. I will try almost anything. Or is there some super-awesome sleep clinic out there that has had success in treating severe cases of insomnia?

    I’m so sorry to hear about your struggles with sleep. When do you normally go to bed and get out of bed, and roughly how many hours of sleep do you get on a typical night? Why do you think you find sleep difficult?

    Have you tried cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I)? As you will see from the success stories page, I have worked with a lot of people with severe insomnia who have lived with sleep issues for decades — and they have successfully improved their sleep for the long-term using CBT-I techniques.
