Hey, Heidi here! I used to have really bad insomnia until I went on meds for BiPolar. Then the insomnia went away. But yeah, up until 8 months ago I had insomnia 2-4x a night where I would be up for half the night.
A lot of good things happened because of insomnia. I had awesome reflection time, where no one was around and I could be alone with my thoughts. I made art. I felt my feels. I read books. It wasn't all bad.
But sleep is glorious, and I'm glad to be able to sleep solidly every night of the week now.
Who else has struggled with insomnia? What worked for you?
