  • Insomnia is when you have difficulty getting to sleep, and/or staying asleep. I have dealt with it since I was in 10th grade.

  • I've gone for as long as 3 weeks on a total of about 2 hours of sleep before. I've slept maybe an hour a night sometimes. Lay in bed for hours before actually falling asleep.

  • A normal healthy person will wake up in the night, an insomniac will have great difficulty in falling back asleep after they've woken up.
