    So here is my problem. Some days, I can’t fall a sleep. Another days, I can sleep, but then I would wake up at 2 or 3 am or even 11 pm, unintentionally. It’s been happening for months, but for the past week, it’s getting worse because it happened everyday. I sleep only about one to three hours per day because I try to sleep at 10 pm, and then woke up at 11. The longest time I’ve been sleeping for the past week is 4 hours. During the day, my head is heavy. I feel so sleepy, but I fight the urge to sleep in so that I would feel very sleepy at night. However when the night came, sometimes I could sleep, and then woke up too early, or I can’t sleep at all and only able to sleep at 4 or 5 am. This shit sucks because before this insomnia hits me, I was preparing for a marathon. Before it hits me, I regularly run for 6 kms on a lazy day and 10-15 kms on a not-so-lazy day. Now, I can’t even run longer than 1 km because I feel so tired for being sleep deprived. Does anyone ever have the same experience?

    Welcome to the forum, and I am so sorry to hear about your difficulties with sleep. Why do you think you find it hard to fall asleep (or fall back to sleep when you wake during the night)?

    Do you feel worried or anxious about your sleep? From what you’ve written, you sound as though you’d do well implementing CBT for insomnia techniques such as bedtime restriction and stimulus control. Have you looked into this or given techniques like this a try in the past?
