'Insomnia destroyed my marriage': One woman's account of how sleepless nights robbed her of a husband

After suffering from insomnia for seven years, her husband said she had changed beyond recognition. Bridget was depressed, irritable, snappy and negative.

Bridget didn’t realize she actually had insomnia; sleeplessness and tiredness became normal to her. She began to resent her husband for being able to fall asleep right next to her within minutes of his head hitting the pillow. She didn’t follow any of the typical insomnia advice or recommendations because she thought she was beyond help. Eventually, Bridget came to me for help and I was able to help cure her insomnia with only a few sessions.
