What Causes Chronic Insomnia?

CHRONIC INSOMNIA – I have been an insomniac all of my life.  Even as a young child I remember laying in bed night after night, trying to occupy my mind to starve off the crazies.

It has stayed with me my whole life and I will probably have to deal with it forever.  I’m lucky if I sleep 3 hours a night, if I sleep at all.  I get an average of about 20-25 hours sleep in a week, sometimes a little more, sometimes less.

Over the years I’v developed strategies to deal with the problems that sleep deprivation cause, but it is still really hard to deal with sometimes.

Is there anyone else on HUB that suffers from sleep problems?  How do you cope with it?  How does it affect you and those around you?
