I've always struggled with insomnia and anxiety at night, but there are times when it gets worse. Maybe my body was just so exhausted finally last night, after a long bout of anxiety and insomnia kept me tossing and turning for months.


I fell asleep quickly and stayed asleep for the whole night. Without headphones on (which, yes, are extremely uncomfortable but block out all external sound). When I woke up this morning, I had a just-woke-up-from-deep-sleep groggy feeling, and it was great. I wish I could sleep like that every night, but I'll take it every once in a while.

Isn't it nice to remember what that feels like every once in a while :D

Ooh, I know the crappy mixture of insomnia and anxiety all too well. Actually getting a good night's sleep every once in a while is truly a simple pleasure. I'm happy for you.

That's great news. Insomnia is truly terrible - I have the same experience with sleep. Rarely sleep through the night lately. In fact it's the middle of the night where I am right now lol. Congrats on getting rest.
