Ask Daniel #18: To Ann, Alex/Linda, Vince, Jay and Lena

Ann has had insomnia for 20 years and has come off Zoplicone but wonders that her next steps should be. Linda answers a shout out from Alex, explaining that trying not to give SA (sudden awareness or falling asleep) attention may become an active effort which backfires. Vince is less stressed but still has superficial sleep. Lena wonders if she should to CBTi to have less SA episodes.
