    ✘ Not a client

    I have been having sleep onset insomnia now for at least 2 years while I’ve had success getting my sleep on tract at least twice now,I’ve had very long stretch of not sleeping deeply a lot of stage 1 sleep with a little rem sleep for about a year now.

    What is extremely frustrating to me is that I am following SR to a tee I go to bed and wake at the same time every night about a 5 hour window,when my alarm goes off I wake up right
    away get out of bed I’m extremely exhausted yet I still do things that need to be done.

    Even though all this sleep drive is being built up by way of being up for so long I am still only a little exhausted no where near sleepy,so to me this could only be a subconscious thought pattern of worry or obsessive thinking keeping it going because all the areas like SR and SC are being covered.

    The question becomes if its a subconscious mindset like an awareness that I’m not sleeping as deeply as I want to that is holding me back how does one get past that because at one time I adopted a care free attitude towards my shallow sleep only for it to be even worse than it is now and eventually after months of shallow sleep I had no choice but to recognize that the acceptance wasn’t working for me,it was as if by accepting the bad nights which was every night led to a new normal of this shallow sleep.
