      I can't hardly sleep at all because I was in an abusive marriage. I still have nightmares. I take doxepin but also take paxil. It helps a little bit not a lot.

      Sleep is over rated is what I have come to find. When nothing helps a regular sleep pattern I just give up and don't sleep

      Sorry you’re going through that, me too! 🥹 My advice is start asking for medication 😆 seriously though. Even for anxiety.

      some people have told me cbd oil helps them ease the anxiety of c-ptsd enough to fall asleep. i haven’t personally had success with cbd oil but i also prefer just smoking cannabis. you are definitely not alone though! i’ve lost months worth of sleep to c-ptsd 😔

      sleep sounds, sleep talkdowns, a bedtime routine & a specific bedtime game have all helped me. ik ur not “supposed” to be on ur phone before bed but if i don’t have a distraction it just is so hard so i usually do crosswords on my phone and i only do them at bedtime so i associate that with getting sleepy. there are also medications that can help if you want to talk to ur doctor abt it <3

      I'm sorry I struggle to sleep to and it's hard to have a routine or schedule because of it. I found that listening to something on my phone helps. I haven't been able to help my nightmares though.

      I do too sometimes from intrusive thoughts
