Hello. My name is Beau (M), I am 21 years old and have been suffering from Insomnia for almost four years now. I often feel lonely in my struggle so naturaly I sought for some Insomniac communities. To my suprise there are very few, which eventually brought me to this support group. I was hoping I could find somebody here to talk to who suffers from Insomnia aswell, like a PenPal or something. I think it would be great to get to know some of you and face this struggle together and to eventually find some comfort in it along the way. If you are interested please send me an email to: [email protected] or just comment below this post. In this way we could swap social media's or phone numbers :)

Too all the brave people who suffer from Insomnia, I want to let you know that you are not alone in this fight and that you are stronger than you realize. It may seem like an unending battle but even darkness must pass. A new day will come and when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. I wish you all the luck and hapiness in the world and may you find some comfort in this message.

I had really bad insomnia at the start of COVID, it was horrible, I would stay up most of the night, read, I tried medicine, Lunesta, Benadryl, exercise, what ultimately helped the most was acupuncture. It wasn't immediate and I was also given Chinese medicine, not sure what it was, but I did a session each month for a few months and it really helped. This was after one of my kids had a horrible bout of insomnia too years before and I took her for acupuncture. It really helped me and my family.
