Are you afraid of going to bed because you’ll just be tormented by another night tossing and turning?
Do you lie awake for hours at night trying to fall asleep, only to feel more angry and desperate as the night moves on?
When you do finally fall asleep, are you up again within just a couple hours before the alarm clock?
Do you feel grumpy, exhausted, irritable, frustrated, and scared that your sleep is never going to get any better?
There are many causes for insomnia, but often it’s caused because an accidental habit is formed.
Maybe you were forced to stay awake late for a few nights (perhaps caring for a loved one, or studying for exams).
Or maybe you were woken throughout the night for some reason, such as taking care of a new baby or puppy.
But then you find that even when the original causes for sleeplessness are gone, suddenly you still can’t sleep.
Your body formed new sleep habits and the wakefulness will continue.
Other people develop insomnia because another mental health condition is interfering with sleep, such as anxiety or nightmares of a trauma.
No Matter What the Cause of Your Insomnia
There is Hope.
Insomnia is best treated with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I).
In fact, CBT-I has been shown to be just as effective (if not more effective) than sleep medications.
In therapy, you will unlearn the accidental sleep habits that were formed.
You will gain new knowledge and skills that will help you get the sleep you need now, and long into the future.
