Two friends wrote me today saying "I wish there was an insomnia clinic for actual help and studies
Instead of a psych ward where it’s impossible to sleep anyway and where you get on meds that are harmful. Ridiculous" "there should be specific insomnia treatment facilities in every town. Ten percent of the population has insomnia... That's a big number, yet no treatment. It's all about the money, selling ----zzzquil and ambien and crap that don't work. Nonsense. I don't think its right that my mental health suffers due to this. I can't take pills to solve this or make a temp. fix/bandage. On another note.. My case is not a easy one either. I have been in cbti for a year. No not cured or greatly better at all. I met a Lcsw online, who had my same story.. (can't share here too long for the post). Insomnia was triggered by a chemical reaction to a pill we took for two weeks. And for treatments doctors gave more pills -almost 30 over this time. For the last two years doctors Pigeon holed me. Still on a pill due to the depression I now have and fear. Sorry for my rant discussion.
