Thanks for taking the time to write to us. Let’s start with the basics. You are losing too much sleep and once that happens many other symptoms begin. I would check with your physician or a psychiatrist to see if there is something medically causing you to lose this much sleep. He or she can help you get back on track, but nothing will work until we increase the amount of time you spend sleeping. You may also be interested in this article I’ve written on sleep.

Wishing you patience and peace,
