I was just reading your post, and I was wondering if there's any way I could talk to you about how you got over your insomnia. I realize that you posted this nine months ago, but I just now discovered this thread and it's the first time that people seem to be experiencing exactly what I've been dealing with. I'm only 21 years old and this has been going on for over a year now. I've literally tried everything..sleep study, otc meds, prescription meds, talking to a psychologists and psychiatrist, ambien, valium, etc...and nothing has helped. I want to permanently get rid of this since im graduating college and it's gonna be tough to start my life if i can't function during the day. ive tried looking up sleep psychologists but can't seem to find any specifically geared toward insomnia. i was just wondering how you found your doctor and if i could contact her...just trying to find someone on the east coast who does the same thing with CBT, and find out what lifestyle changes you made to get better. Thanks!View Thread
