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).

    At a loss

    so this entire week I've been basically taking 2-3 hour naps twice a day. Last night, after sleeping 2 hr 45 min, I moved furniture for about 3 hours. I came home, relaxed, ate, was actually tired so I took my sleeping pill early and thought finally ill sleep normally. Was in bed for 4 hours, slept 2. I have to work tonight. I guess I'll attempt to nap again when I'm feeling a little more tired....

    Last summer my insomnia was at its worst. It was awful straight for 3 months. Barely slept and was absolutely miserable. There's a difference between sleep deprivation and insomnia. My husband and I may try to start a family the end of this year and I'm terrified of how my insomnia will be when the baby comes. I can't fall back to sleep easy when I wake up and no matter how exhausted I can't take...

    Hi.  I’m new to the group and I really don’t know where to start with this one.  I have a lot of trouble getting to sleep and staying asleep.  I guess I just need some suggestions.  I am working on getting a doctor’s appointment.

    I had a 3 month bout early 2016 and finally came out of it with prayer and the right meds.  Many totally sleepless nights or 2-4 hour sleep nights.  It was horrible.  Now for the past week it has started again.  The last 3 nights I only had 5 hours sleep total leaving me totally anxious and feeling miserable during the day.  I need some encouragement and success stories of living with this...
