I've moved your post here so you can discuss it with, hopefully, knowledgable people.
Please, if any of you know anything about sleep dread ... I understand it is my bodies defence mechanism kicking in when I try to sleep that produces Adrenalin , I am being physical sick it is that intense, I also have to go the toilet .
Have you recently discovered new facts about the universe that changed your opinion about the world ? Is the fear of sleep because if nightmares?
There could be other factors like fear of hallucinations although never happened.I' m not a specialist, but these are assumptions based on personal observations.

Sounds like anxiety ... http://www.mind.org.uk/information-support/types-of-mental-health-problems/anxiety-and-panic-attacks/anxiety-symptoms/
... I've started with gluten free diet which seemed to work but then tottaly give up cereals ...
I've been looking for articles on sleep dread but haven't found anything helpful, most seem to combine it with General insomnia.Have you managed to pin down what the source of the anxiety is? E.g. Some people have a fear of not waking up.
I'm glad to hear you've found something that works for you. After a while you should be able to bring sleep time forward bit by bit.I don't know if this is helpful, but quite a lot of people find mindfulness useful for relaxing, a sort of structured meditation e.g. http://marc.ucla.edu/body.cfm?id=22Personally, I find a film or music can help me tune out thoughts that keep me awake, or maybe they are so boring I fall asleep anyway.Hope the improved sleep continues.
I do dread when I come off these pill's wondering if I am ''cured'' or as my sleep become dependent to the med's. Time will tell ....
