Cosmo girl, a very warm welcome to you!! I'm so glad that you have found some comfort here and I really hope you stick around, we are a little family here.
Insomnia is horrible. It's little wonder you are having trouble sleeping with all the anxiety in your life (and just being diagnosed). It's normal to feel overwhelmed by this and to think that EVERYTHING is wrong with us...this will pass sweetie, it really will. I find writing down all my worries before I go to bed, then closing the book and saying ENOUGH NOW! can help chase away the worries at night. There is nothing you can do at night (except declare war on your PJ's) so leave the worrying for daytime when you can do something constructive!!
Laurar and bad genetics gave some good advice about possible medications...I take ativan 2.5mg when I KNOW I'm not going to sleep, but since I cut caffiene out a year ago most of my nights are pretty good...I'm really glad you posted here and please let us know how things go xx
