Insomnia Support Group

Insomnia is a symptom, rather than a disease, and is characterized by inadequate quantity or quality of sleep. People with insomnia complain of difficulty falling or staying asleep, which results in significant impairment of daytime functioning. Insomnia is categorized as transient (shorter than one week), short-term (one to three weeks) or chronic (longer than three weeks).

    This is making me have insomnia...

    I am sleepy, and want to go to sleep.  I lay down, and really start to drift off to sleep.  Then, I start hearing  these weird voices saying randon things, and sometimes I see visual images.  They are like dreams, but I am not fully asleep. They may start about three minutes after I lay down and close my eyes.  The sounds and images cause a lot of anxiety, and makes me fully awake.  I can't...

    Too much sleep....

    8 years now I had insomnia as a secondary symptom of a disorder. I am 40+ and normally I manage well enough to enjoy life.It's 04:24 and it is the fourth night I have been awake at 4 in the morning in a row now. I know what is causing it. I just had the flu again.

    Cognitive behavioral book I found

    I have had chronic insomnia for over 3 years. I have been going to therapy for stress for over 18 months with very little progress on the insomnia side. I did this because every doctor, therapist, person said it was your stress. I don't consider myself a severely stressed or depressed person but I was convinced I was. I have tried sleeping pills , anxiety medicine, pot, you name it after a while...

(I am not upset about that) My boyfriend however isn't so fond of me returning to it. He describes me as a "zombie" during the day. It's hard to get...
