Insomnia simply is a chronic inability to sleep.
Read this hypothetical scenario of someone struggling to get rest:
“I have had many restless nice with only a few hours a sleep. Many night I would only get 3 or 4 hours of sleep. I had tried everything to help me sleep.I tried things like Tylenol pm.mild nerve pills and even was tested for sleep apnea and had a breathing machine to use at night for the sleep apnea.That machine made me feel as if i could not get any oxygen. Insomnia can make you crazy after awhile.
I was having a very difficult time breathing with it. I had to quit using the machine because it was so uncomfortable. I feel like I am at wits end but I don’t want to get some rest my body needs it.”
Does anything in this scenario sound familiar to you?
If so, don’t be discouraged.
