I’ve been having trouble sleeping ever since I was diagnosed with insomnia. Each night I lay awake in bed, my mind swimming in an endless loop of thoughts. Nightmares haunt my sleep, taunting me with memories of trauma and heartache. I am too anxious to get any rest, yet I am too exhausted to stay up all night.
Nightmares have become a regular occurrence for me, plaguing my nights with fear and distress. My subconscious seems to have a perpetual case of PTSD, and I am constantly reliving painful experiences from my past. I wake up in a cold sweat, shaken and distressed.
My insomnia keeps me trapped in a vicious cycle of exhaustion and anxiety. I’m tired, but I can’t fall asleep. It’s as if my body has forgotten what it feels like to truly rest. I try to distract myself with activities, but eventually I’m too tired to do anything but lay in bed, wide awake.
My insomnia is made worse by stress. When I get overwhelmed, I can’t find the quiet rest I need to clear my mind. I become paralyzed by my worries, and it seems like no amount of sleep will ever be enough to make a difference. I’m left to lay in bed, exhausted and anxious, longing for a peaceful night of dreamless rest.
