Yes! Yes! This is me. I pass out with ease and an hour later I’m up for the rest of the night. I know my insomnia is directly related to childhood trauma.

I nap hard too, though I’m not sure if it’s that I’m so exhausted or if I naturally feel more comfortable sleeping during the day.

I may never know but I do know I’ll sleep whenever I can.
