I feel like crying all night... I hope anyone reading this is able to get some good rest tonight. That's all I really have to say.

I’m a survivor of a violent crime over 2 decades ago. Last year my mother passed away which triggered my PTSD. Now I have dreams that my attacker is coming to get me and I can’t sleep or can’t get to sleep even though he was caught and placed in prison.

I slept so well for weeks, and now I have a lot of trouble falling and then staying asleep. I take a shower, go to bed around 11pm and read until my eyes close. I live alone surrounded by nature and sometimes get paranoid when I hear sounds from outside. Usually it doesn't bother me but if I dont sleep it gets worse and I get all nervous and jumpy. I already had sound apps and pills. But now I'm so tense and can't relax I lay stiff in my bed all night and get up with pain in my neck and back.

I'm having trouble sleeping. I don't know if it's my insomnia, the change in my schedule, my cold, finishing a painting I spent hours on just before bed, or that I'm trying some different pyjamas that I don't usually wear. Whatever the reason I'm wide awake and can't sleep. I have taken medicine. My evening pills that are to help me sleep along with a cough pill.

I’m worried about not being able to sleep again tonight. Not even ready for bed yet but already starting to worry about it. Any ideas?

Insomnia, I wish you weren’t present. I need sleep for the exams i’m taking tomorrow. I’m tired of the bags under my eyes. Yet, in the middle of 4:00 am it’s the one time where i’m by myself in y household. In a way it’s comforting. But, i get trapped with my thoughts. And i find myself falling into a deeper hole

2:35 am haven’t slept but 2 hours in 2 days exhausted, dehydrated from work. But wide awake anxiety ridden mind. Anxious and so depressed don’t know how much longer I can go on... just want to sleep for a week. Don’t want to die I have hope but it’s all too much and sometime I wish I would not wake up at all.. I know I have to keep fighting till I can’t anymore #lost can’t sleep

I find that having a cold shower helps me sleep. Sometimes where I can’t sleep I get so hot and clammy which makes it worse. Having a quick cool shower helps me a lot !

Having trouble sleeping. Dealing with the reality that my husband is verbally and mentally abusive and trying. To figure out how to get him to reach rock bottom.

Many many nights I wake up screaming because I’ve pictured myself dying, but not just dying actually rotting in a casket, alone, without my family, not having accomplished my dreams, not having anything to show. I stay awake because I fear dying in my sleep.

Hey y’all so random piece of advice but don’t sleep with a blue/white nightlight. Blue/white light makes you alert; sleep with red light instead. Sounds weird, but it works!
