I have ALL the symptoms of sFI. Almost sure that I have it.

I have EVERY symptom of this disease and it is surely not caused by common insomnia. Meds can't find an answer to what is happening to me and just say 'anxiety,'. I will get to a neurologist soon to do exams and see if it is possible to diagnose this disease before I'm demented and completely rely on others. Haven't slept properly for over seven months, with just extremely broken sleep of 30 minutes periods ...

ruined day, then ruined week, then ruined life

Have you ever experienced something similar?:

I've been struggling with insomnia since about 15 or so. First it started with worries about how healthy I would look the next day and would I be able to attract girls like I normally did. This turned out to be a valid concern, so I obsessed and obsessed over it to this day. I'm in my mid 30's now and I am able to do well with women ...

I have recently stopped taking an anti-depressant that I had for anxiety following a traumatic experience and I am finding that I simply cannot sleep and on the odd occasion I do sleep for an hour or so at most, I have very vivid dreams.
Wondering if this is normal

Experiencing Sleep Twitches EVERY time I drift/Can't sleep

Hi there,

For the past month now every time Im on the brink of sleep I have a sleep start/twitch in some area of my body. In the beginning I was not able to fall asleep until 3 in the morning and I was disassociating from myself, walking around like a zombie. I self medicated by taking NyQuil and natural sleep aids which did nothing, I felt like I was dying. I went to different ...

staying asleep

Hopefully someone has some words of wisdom. First, I don’t think I have slept more than 6 hours since I was in my 20’s (I am 59) and I was always an early riser (around 530-6 am). I guess my first occurrence of insomnia first started about 13 years ago where I couldn’t get to sleep because my brain wouldn’t shut up. My family physician put me on a low dose of Xanax and that ...

How to get rid of noise when trying to fall asleep

When trying to fall asleep, I get easily startled by sudden noises.
I use earplugs almost every night and they do make a big difference, but while everything is quieter, I feel I become even more sensitive to footfalls and objects hitting the floor in the apartment on top of us.

It isn't that the folks are loud, they just go about their normal life but go to bed later.

It seems to me that ...

Awakenings only on weekdays

Hi everyone!

I've been struggling with awakenings in the middle of the night for more over 2 years. The strangest thing is that those episodes occur only on weekdays.

Every time I have to go to work I wake up at 3 or 4 AM and struggle to go back to sleep in less than an hour  (because I feel anxious about getting the right amount of sleep and performing poorly the next day at ...

Ringing in my ears keeping me awake

I've been hearing ringing in my ears ever since a party last week.
It has loud music but I wasn't near exposed to it for very long.
I only notice the ringing when it's quiet at night and I'm trying to get some sleep.
So far it hasn't gotten any better.
Any advice on how long I should wait to see improvement?

Tips on Healthier Sleeping Methods (Warning: Explicit)

Every night, around 8-10 o'clock, I get aggressive and angry about soon having to go to bed (or the thought of my partner getting tired). In order to get some decent sleep, I have to take about 3-5 Benadryl tablets or beg my partner to give me oral.

Backstory on oral: I'm currently two months on HRT and my libido has skyrocketed. I don't know how to get off on my own, so in exchange ...
