Hi there, I am new to this forum but having read the posts it is good to feel that I am not alone with this awful insomnia!

I have been experiencing insomna for the past few months and am really struggling to put a brve face on it all. I have been off work for 2 weeks also as I have ot had the strength to go in with no sleep / 2 hours sleep max per night. I just can't concentrate!

The trouble is I feel so anxious in the hours leading up to bedtime and then in bed I lie with my heart racing for hours and often all night. Does anyone else have this problem at all?

I look forward to meeting new people on here who are in the same boat as me and can share their experiences!

Well welcome to the forum and I hope you will stick around. I have had many nights of that kind of sleep problems and have been dealing with it for a long time.. Neil above has had ensomnia since he was a small boy... He is a good reference to seeking other help.

I found out last August that I have Sleep Apnea although  the machine helps once I am able to relax to sleep I still spend many a night up not sleeping because I can't get to sleep to use the machine to help me stay asleep.. Have been ill and medicated so as of late have been getting sleep at all kinds of odd hours and sometimes too much.

I do know how hard it is.. It is terrible and its easy to loose track of things like days etc..

Good luck to you come again and enjoy the forum!

Thanks Karen.  I finally drifted off sometime around 7:30.  At 7:45 my phone started ringing with people begging hubby to come repair their air conditioners.  Maybe I'll get some tonight.

Hope it cools off and that you get some rest soon too.

Well does anyone here ever have trouble with restless leg syndrome.. I have had several bouts of it over the last few weeks which is more then usual for me.. usually once or twice a month.. but many times this month already.. seems worse then usual.. not as intense and hard to stop but many more incidents then usual keeping me wake nights!
