Hi everyone. I believe I have the worst insomnia out of everyone in the whole world. When I was pregnant at 18 years old, I had a bout of insomnia that lasted the first 6 months of my pregnancy. I believe I have lost the ability to relax. My life has been hell. My son is now 4 and I still suffer tremendously. I am always worried about not sleeping and that very worry keeps me awake, but i don't know how to stop worrying. I have truly been where all of you are. My lack of sleep has greatly debilitated the quality of my life. I've seen doctors, who first off don't believe my story. One doctor told me that if I hadn't slept that long I would be dead. I am so sick of the medical industry, no professional who has the potential to help takes me seriously. Going without sleep has changed me drastically. I am not who I've always wanted to be. I have had so many sleepless nights in my life that they would calculate to years! I have contemplated taking my life many times, but I just couldn't do it. Yet, my outlook on life remains poor. I hate insomnia. I am glad I am finally able to share my story. Thank you for reading!
