I went through a very emotionally traumatic experience. I felt my life was collapsing around me. I became very sad, anxious and distressed....I wasn't able to sleep for more than 2-3 hours. I had never in my life experienced this before. Fast forward two years later and it feels like my brain has become accustomed to this. I've tried Benadryl, increasing activity during the day, Valerian tea, Chamomile tea, Melatonin ...even alcohol. Some day days I can get 6 hours...but, that is rare. I usually wake up around 2:30 a.m. and find it impossible to fall back asleep. Thanks in advance for your help.
