|Insomnia can turn the best of us into vampires!|
While it's NOT the greatest sleep hygiene to be staring at a backlit screen in the middle of the night, the reality is that there are hundreds of thousands of people out there who are suffering from chronic, disabling insomnia. SHC always suggests you pay a visit to your doctor to figure out what you can do to treat your insomnia. It could be caused by medications, an underlying health condition you aren't aware of, a poor sleep environment, anxiety disorders, and/or less-than-stellar sleep hygiene. You won't know the root of your problem until you see a doctor, who will look at a multitude of factors which can lead to chronic insomnia.
But you might be reading this post now and thinking, WHAT ABOUT TONIGHT? So here are some suggestions for places to go to learn more about insomnia and to talk directly to others who suffer. Misery loves company and can often help point you in the right direction for finding treatment.
