After ten years of insomia, I was finally able to sleep in September last year, as a result of taking seroquel. However, over the past few weeks, I have started waking, after only a few minutes sleep because of noises in the house. I wake terrified, that someone is breaking into my house, and although I quickly realise that they are not, I am unable to go back to sleep. It seems that my mind will overcome anything which helps me to sleep. The seroquel worked so well, that it seems my mind had to invent some other reason to keep me awake. I started to wear ear-plugs, which worked, until my mind came up with the idea of creating noises in my mind to wake me, because I was no longer able to hear the noises in my house. It does seem that insomnia is an enemy which is far too powerful and which will always get the upper hand, no matter what I try. And, after a few months of sleeping well, the return of the insomnia is so disheartening and it is somehow worse knowing how much better I felt during those few months of blissful sleep, and think it would have been better not to have had those months at all, than to have had them taken away again.
