View Full Version : Insomnia - Waking up in the middle of the night can't go back to sleep?

I am 19 years old, I went to bed around 9 pm and woke up at around 1am.. now I can't seem to go back to sleep. I try closing my eyes but I end up moving around. I usually have the type of insomnia where I have trouble falling asleep, now it turned into the middle of the night insomnia. Are people with attention deficit disorder more likely to have insomnia?

i have more trouble getting to sleep, once im sleeping (and theres nothing important on the next day arghh) im fine.

but if theres some big event or anything that is important or fun the next day = no sleep.

Sleeping for me is the worst. I find it very very hard to fall asleep and stay asleep. If I wake up, it is hours before I fall back asleep if I ever do. I have had a combined 10 hours in the last 3 nights. Also when the sun comes up, no matter if I am asleep or not I wake up. I hope you find a way to get a better night sleep:p
