    My insomnia is getting worse. I am awake all night several nights a week. Several nights i get to sleep around 5 am sleep until noon then once again when night time rolls around it’s guess work weather or not I will sleep.
    My life is pretty much on hold as I am always tired & afraid of going to bed

    Do you work 3rd shift or is 5am when you finally are able to fall asleep? Are you experiencing any anxiety towards your sleep that could be causing you not to fall asleep at an earlier time? If so, what is going through your mind that would cause that delay in sleep? Lastly, don’t allow insomnia control our life and daily activities. Canceling social events, workouts and other events you enjoy puts a spotlight on the problem and causes additional arousal about your sleep. I know it’s very tempting to cancel those activities because you’re fatigued but staying active during the day improves the quality of your day and assists in building a strong sleep drive for bedtime.

    Hi! It is common for insomniacs to develop nocturnal panic. Fear that everything will happen again, fear of how I will fulfill my obligations the next day, etc… The more fear, the more insomnia. The fear-adrenaline-insomnia cycle is perpetuated. Doing it differently is the way out. Accept your insomnia, be friends with it. Don’t give it any importance. _ Welcome Mrs Insomnia, you again here? Okay, it’s okay, you can stay. Play with it. This attitude disarms the game and turns off your brain. Do it, you don’t have much to lose. Good luck.
