I’m really scared I will die from lack of sleep . I know rationally that it’s so unlikely but I have really been struggling to sleep for months. It started in around January, got worse when I had covid and then went away again. Then I started getting anxious and my sleep declined in February. I now feel like I am never really asleep- I sleep very lightly and have dreams sometimes but I never feel deeply asleep. I was put on citalopram for anxiety/depression and have been on it for a few months but am not seeing much improvement. I feel tired but not sleepy- I am so scared. I am only 19. I am at uni and want to live a long life but my head feels empty and foggy atm, I struggle to have conversations etc. I have tried Zopiclone, antihistamines etc and it doesn’t really help. I feel like i have tried everything- no screens before bed, meditation, cutting down on caffeine, drinking alcohol to fall asleep etc etc. Has anyone else experienced and overcome this? please help!
