I haven’t been sleeping recently because I’m long story short I’m not in a good place mentally. I find it hard to fall asleep because of the bit before where you’re just lying there. All my memories and thoughts are just racing around and torturing me like I can see images in my head. I dont want to go through that so I stay up all night until I pass out or fall asleep very quickly I’m not too sure what happens I never remember. Does anyone kkow what this might be called if it’s a disorder or if there’s not actually anything going on??advice would be greatly appreciated as I would like to research into it xx
It has many causes such as your diet, your physical health, your mental health or a combination of all.
The thing with insomnia is that it becomes a vicious circle where you can’t get to sleep so you’re too tired to deal with the underlying issues, so you can’t get to sleep.
Or you can’t get to sleep and you worry about not being able to sleep so you can’t get to sleep.
There are things that can help lessens/prevent insomnia-some are things you can do yourself and some that you should go to your GP about.
