“I don’t think there is anyone else in the world that realises what it is like to be awake at 3pm AGAIN, knowing you have a full day ahead of you”
There are two main types of insomnia;
- Transient – this is what most people experience at some point in their lives, it generally lasts no more than a few days or weeks and usually occurs in response to some unusual event or situation, perhaps a new job or going through a divorce.
- Chronic – If you have been troubled by poor sleep for years, if the bad patches seem to outweigh the good and if you regularly spend nights getting no more than a few hours’ sleep, chronic insomniacs are usually obsessed with their problem, they try a lot of remedies, nothing seems to work for them.
Within these two types, people fall into two more groups;
- Sleep onset – those who find it difficult to fall asleep in the first place.
- Sleep maintenance - those who fall asleep quite quickly but who wake too early but then find it impossible to get back to sleep.
I too, have been a chronic insomniac, I know how it feels, the good news is that I have solutions to help you have a natural night’s sleep.
