Hello everyone. For the past few days (3-4) I've been experiencing insomnia. I believe my anxiety is preventing me from falling asleep. I kid you not when I say I've only been having at least o-1 hour of sleep. I don't know why this is happening and I'm losing my mind. I'm hoping anyone can give me advice on what I should do about this. I would also like to ask anyone who has experienced this and how long did it take for your insomnia to go away. I'd heard this can lasts for days weeks months and years. I definitely do not want to take sleeping meds or benzos but if I cant cope with this then I'm willing to take the necessary meds to help me fall asleep. ive heard Xanax can act as a sleeping pill but I'm not sure. I am going to see a psychiatrist soon as well just to get his opinion.
