Over the last few months I have developed chronic insomnia. An occasional prob became chronic: lockdown #1, demands of caring, having adhd / autism & long-standing anxiety and depression. I’m following all the sleep hygiene stuff they advise (not that helpfully lol), have regular bed & waking times but I still don’t sleep.
I’m in pain long term (neuropathy, rotator cuff injury) which can keep me awake: I have an appt with my GPs to review my meds.
I’ve tried meditation, wind-down time, warm showers... I cannot find anything which regularly helps me drop asleep, even radio or podcasts.
Anyone able to offer any helpful advice, please? I avoid worrying unduly about not sleeping but tbh it’s making me exhausted and crotchety, so needs sorting out.
