I’ve been struggling with sleep for 3 months now. I’ve never been a deep sleeper but now I just don’t sleep at all. No matter how tired I am. I get about 3 hours of sleep a day. Off & on at that. Not even a straight 3 hours. I would say it’s due to stress/anxiety/depression but I feel it’s something more. The everyday headaches don’t give me a better shot at sleeping either. I actually not being able to sleep is what makes me more depressed. Either way, I’m tired of this. Forreal. I’ve got a sleep test scheduled in 2 weeks. I’ve tried sleeping pills, melatonin baths and gummies, NyQuil, you name it. It’s frustrating. Anyone have similar issues/remedies ?

      YES this is me 100%. No matter what I try, I'm always exhausted and sleep deprived, and it's so freaking frustrating. You're not alone! I've had 6 sleep studies, and nothing. Doctors just say "idk maybe sleep apnea?" I'm not sure how to better my sleep, but I have started writing in a journal before I go to bed as a brain dump, cause often my brain can't turn off, and that's helped me fall asleep. I still wake up a lot in the middle of the night though

        @AnxiousBean Wow. Just wow. I can’t even believe we’re really going through this. Lol. Last night after I wrote this, my sleep got no better. I slept from 11pm to 12:30 am. And couldn’t sleep again until 4:45 til 5:45. I literally had to darken my whole room today to try and see if that would help me sleep, I just woke up from an off & on 2 hour nap. Smh. So over this.

          @MeishaH Yep, I feel ya. A few years ago I was so sleep deprived and tired, that I was too tired to sleep. Like my eyes wouldn't say closed. It was so frustrating, I had to lose all of my energy to basically pass out and take a nap
