I have been suffering from insomia for over 20 years. The last 15 years I have been averaging two and a half to three hours sleep. I can be falling asleep watching tv and then go lie down in bed and not be able to fall asleep. for a couple of hours and when I do I am only asleep for about 3 hours. I have taken so many different types of anti depressants to help me with sleep but none of them have worked. Is there help out there?
Have you ever looked for a physical cause? The first assumption is always that it is a psychological problem. I suffered severe insomnia for 30 years. Finally, after those years of misery it was found to be an endocrine problem. Now I sleep, but am still furious that the doctors were so single-minded. You might have your thyroid and adrenals checked.
