Insomnia insight #295: Can’t sleep? Don’t tell anyone. Sleep well? Tell the world!

When you tell friends you can’t sleep there’s a real risk that several of the following happen:

– You get a weird look which creates an unhelpful belief that there’s something wrong with you
– You get well intended but terrible advice
– You becomes known as the insomniac in your circle
– You affirm that you have trouble sleeping

Do you have trouble sleeping? Can’t sleep? Have questions about insomnia or sleep? Please leave a comment or send me an email at daniel@insomniainsight.co and I will be happy to share my thoughts as a video or audio reply.
