Ask Daniel #26: To Joseph, Emily, Lena and Heather

Joseph reads about conditions on the internet and then starts having the symptoms of these conditions. Emily slept great until she had a baby almost 2 years ago, how can she go back to sleeping like she used to? Lena has done amazingly well but her sleep confidence is stuck at 0. Heather no longer wants to feel like a prisoner relying on pills, she has started tapering but is she doing it the right way?
