I have often been accused by various doctors of exaggerating the severity of the insomnia I have. However, this has only done me a disservice. Since the last thing I want is pills, but actual answers, doctors usually don't want to do any work! It is far easier to dismiss my complaint totally and send me away than it is to investigate. I have resorted to using various sleep trackers such as fitbit and cellular telephones to self track my sleep. It is pointless, though. I don't bother staying in bed all night. During the day, I exist in this in-between world, half asleep and half awake and always cannot resist the urge to lie my body down due to constant exhaustion. It has been nearly 5 years. I think it must be brain damage I wasn't told about. Maybe oxygen deprivation. I was never told.
