What time of life, childhood, adolescence, motherhood, menopause?
Childhood onset insomnia is said to be rare, but a lot of people talk of their insomnia as going back forever.
Adolescent onset insomnia is also said to be “rare.” And yet many people trace their insomnia to this time.
Researchers tells us that most insomnia is brought on by a stressful event or event which then settles in and becomes conditioned. Has this been your experience?
Do you think it’s related to childhood stress or trauma?
Does it run in your family?
Is it related to your hormonal fluctuations?
Is it related to the work you do? Job and money insecurities?
Do you have other health conditions—such as autoimmune or gastric or low blood sugar –you think are related to insomnia? (other than obvious things that would keep anyone awake, like pain—I mean, subtler connections between something going on in your body and sleep disturbance)?
