    Hi Tired54, well, you have come to the right place.

    For starters, I would say read the comments throughout the forum, particular the responses from Martin and mentors like Scott. Martin also sends emails on various subjects, especially around sleep anxiety–that revolving door we all get caught in sometimes (anxious so can’t sleep, than anxious that won’t be able to sleep, then fearing not being able to sleep, etc etc.)

    A lot might seem like cliches, and it can seem repetitive. That doesn’t mean the maxims aren’t true. Examples: sleep is a natural process, fatigue comes upon us and our body then sleeps; thoughts can get in the way, and when we are tired the thoughts can get pretty crazy. They seem so powerful they must be true—thoughts like “I’ll never sleep well again, ever,” “I can’t handle this,” “I would rather die” etc etc. when actually it is just the insomnia talking.

    Insomnia is hard. I find it is easier to handle if I can just deal with this moment, right here, right now—–rather than imagining what the rest of my life is going to be. And at bedtime tonight, acknowledging that sure, you would like to sleep well, but if you don’t, it will be disappointing but not automatically devastating.
