It’s not easy when you can’t sleep. You’re tired during the day. You’re feeling irritable and easily frustrated because the fatigue is starting to get to you. You know that not being able to sleep at night is getting in the way of your work performance from time to time. It’s getting in the way of your family life too by having to take naps when you could be spending time with your children.
Insomnia might also be challenging because you can’t ever get on a sleep schedule that works for you. You sleep a few hours at night, not enough to feel rested, and then a nap whenever you can fit it in during the day. Together, the two leave you feeling very tired and perhaps even anxious.
