Chronic insomnia help please!?

Answered 4 months ago

Been suffering from it for 4 years, it’s all anxiety related as whenever I have an important event or even just something to do next day example, work, the anxiety of having to be up at a certain time won’t let me sleep. I get maybe 2-3 hours at most. I’ve tried just about everything there is to try in medicine and natural. I feel this is killing me slowly and no one sees it. I feel so crappy through out my days and I have a family and kids to attend to. I have no energy and my body aches so much from the exhaustion. I don’t know what to do I feel like I juts want to die at some points. Please help any help I appreciate l.

Have you tried a mindfulness app. I like the smiling minds app. There's some sleep guided meditations.
