When should I talk to someone about this? If Insomnia makes it difficult for you to work during the day, set an appointment to discuss your sleep issues. This will help you decide on options that work for you. If we suspect a sleeping disorder such as sleep apnea, you may be referred to a sleep center for special testing.
Some of the things you are doing to cope with your disorder may be worsening it. For example, if you are taking sleeping pills or using alcohol to fall asleep, this will disrupt your sleep even more in the long run. If you drink excessive amounts of coffee during the day, it will become harder to fall asleep during the evening.
