Ask Daniel #44: To Jane, Ishrak, Animated Art, Naya, Abbey, Mary, Zoltan, Benjamin and Malena

Jane is doing much better with less rules and regulations. Ishrak has ended up with a pattern of 2 nights of little sleep followed by one where he sleeps. What’s up with this pattern? Animated Art dropped into the rabbit hole of googling sleep but is making his way up! Naya has never been this anxious before. She barely sleeps but still has energy during the day. Can she really do CBTi? How much would she need to restrict her time in bed? Mary started having trouble sleeping after sheltering began. What to do? Zoltan’s wife has intermittent RLS. Benjamin slept much better after getting a puppy but now the insomnia is back. Malena thought she couldn’t have kids because of insomnia. Now she is detaching herself from sleep and getting more of it!
