I'm pretty sure I do. I told my Mom and she said she had it when she was younger. She said she had scary dreams and stuff.

I can fall asleep but I have to stay up until midnight or so. I can't just "go to sleep". So really, I have to exhaust myself of all my energy before I can sleep.

The only time I can fall asleep earlier, about 10 PM, is if I stay up until 2 in the morning for a couple days in a row>.>

I have it quite frequently, there are periods where my sleep can be normal again, but that's generally only when my body has become that tired it has to rest.
I generally have to wait until I pass out because I've become that tired, or occasionally I can force myself to sleep.
I don't really have a sleeping pattern it now varies that much.

Insomnia affects all age groups. Among adults, women managers insomnia more often than men. Prevalence tends to increase with age. It is generally more common among those lower socioeconomic (income) groups, chronic alcoholics, and patients of mental health.

Quick question about insomnia/depression. I don't know why but since I've been depressed, a few years ago never officially diagnosed though, I "hate" sleeping. I feel like its a waste of time cuz I always think I could be doing something more productive than laying in bed unconscious. Does anyone maybe know why I'm thinking like this???

YES! All the time. It's one of my reasons for never going to bed at a "decent" time.

Insomnia, old friend.

I've always had insomnia. It started when I was really little and has never gone away. When I was 8 I was going to bed at midnight. Its just gotten worse, but last year was the worse for me. I didnt sleep for about 6 days. Part of that was I was on my laptop allnight, part of it was I just didnt want to sleep. I like my insomnia actually. xD


Thank you Siobhan <3

^ Same as Alex. I've always had it in some form. I can't remember my last refreshing night's sleep actually.

usually mine comes on for several days at a time when I go for about 48-72 hours straight. Then eventually my body just collapses for pure exhaustion.

My insomnia is patchy. Some days it's horrible, others it's only a bit bad. But I have it most of the time. I hate/love it.

Some people confuse insomnia with other sleeping problems. People with insomnia can be awake for days, and are exhausted but can never fall asleep. Just because you stay up to 2am or 3am some nights doesn't mean you're an insomniac.

^ Insomnia can be anything from difficulty getting to sleep to long periods on little to no sleep. You can also be considered an insomniac if you get a decent amount of sleep every night but find yourself always tired as if you hadn't slept at all. Insomnia is pretty broad actually.

Yep, I've had it for ... well, I've always had (past few years, quite severe)problems with sleep.

I think really whenever i'm down about something or worried it prevents me from sleeping properly. Lately i've not been able to sleep properly at all, its like theres always something preventing it. Too noisy, can't get comfortable, too quiet, too much light, can't stop thinking etc.
