This is my first time writing on here, but I feel like I need another way to express my feelings that isn't talking to my friends or family. I've had anxiety and sleeping problems for as long as I can remember, but both have only worsened as I've gotten older. My insomnia was horrible in college, improved after I graduated and moved back home, but has gotten bad again this past year. I got a job as a Social Worker, work a second job some weekends, and never have any time to see friends or exercise (or even go to therapy for that matter). In other words, if I don't sleep well, I don't have much time to relax or recharge. I've tried journaling, deep breathing, meditation, medication, and talking to the supports in my life - but nothing seems to truly help. Some nights I sleep fine, others I lie awake all night and can't fall asleep. I've begun to feel hopeless, as if this is a problem I'll be struggling with for my whole life. I know so many people suffer from this same problem but a lot of times I feel alone. I try to just power through the day like nothing's wrong, when I'm really just exhausted and feeling emotional from lack of sleep. Does anyone have any other tips or methods that have worked for them?
