Chronic insomnia is also known as long-term or hyper-insomnia. Sleep studies show on average that 10% of adults suffer from this condition. Unlike transient and intermittent insomnia, chronic insomnia sufferers rarely experience a good night’s sleep.
In fact many chronic insomnia sufferers have suffered for years and even their whole lives. What many people do not understand is that it’s a very serious condition that affects the sufferer physically and mentally.
Being an ex-chronic insomnia sufferer myself I understand how frustrating this condition can be. I thought I was going to go insane at some point; not being able to fall asleep for hours, tossing and turning every night, waking up frequently and having a barrage of thoughts circling my head, it was a living nightmare.
I guess it wouldn’t have been so bad, if I didn’t ‘need’ to sleep. But I needed it so badly. I could barely function in the day, feeling like a total wreck. I was irritable, moody and exhausted. My confidence was completely wiped out.
I couldn’t stand looking at myself anymore, I looked awful and god knows what people thought about the way I acted and looked. Chronic insomnia was the bane of my life. I had tried everything I could think of – sleep medication, aromatherapy and even acupuncture.
It was only when I started treating chronic insomnia as the symptom rather than the cause that I started noticing that my sleep began to improve. I began focusing on treating the underlying cause, tapping into the subconscious if you will with mind-programming techniques.
I started using alternative therapies to tap into the body’s meridian energy system to unblock negative energies that affected my sleep. I realized that sleep could just be another learned process like walking and cycling.
I realized that I had reinforced negative habits and thoughts into my subconscious over the years and that I had sabotaged my own ability to sleep. I had brainwashed myself in believing there was no hope and I had built an internal fear factor of sleep.
For chronic insomniacs out there, there is hope. If you believe that someone can learn to be confident, if you believe someone can learn to overcome phobias, if you believe that people can change, then you already know that insomnia can be beaten.
