    Yes., mild insomnia. I would not be able to fall asleep... Sometimes I was stuck awake for over 24 hours.

    I have had insomnia since I was 10. I did not start taking medication for it until about 10 years ago, when I was at my doctors and he walked in and asked when was the last time I slept. With medication I can get five to six hours of sleep. Without medication, three hours to four broken hours is about the max. Eventually, you get more for a day or two because of sheer exhaustion.

    It runs in the family. Must be another one of those genetic quirks.

    I have tried all the suggested remedies--warm milk, read a book, listen to soft music, listen to waves hitting the beach, counting sheep, etc. Anything that requires or results in the stimulation of the brain will keep me awake. I went to a sleep clinic once and the diagnosis was psychophisological insomnia, which meant it was either mental or physical. That is one of those diagnosis that covers the waterfront pretty well.

    I do suffer from insomnia.

    My insomnia is related to my blindness. Because my brain no longer receives sufficient light to maintain a more regular body clock, my periods of sleep and wakefulness move around the day. One week I might sleep normally through the night, a week or two later I am awake at 3am, another week or two and I am moving back to a more normal cycle.

    This form of insomnia is common for the visually impaired. It is similar to experiments a few years ago when scientists placed people into a cave and found their body clocks  made them confused after several days with only artificial light. They lost all sense of time and began to sleep irregularly.

    My reason is that my brain is like forever active.

    I am always thinking of something and it is like never at rest. I have changed my pattern in daily life. So, now I can sleep better.

    I have insomnia and it has worsened over the past few years. Even when I set a sleep schedule it doesn't work. OTC sleep aids don't work for me. Melatonin hasn't worked for me either. The only thing that ever has worked for me is Ambien CR.
