I am a newbie and need some help.

My problems started years ago, around the time I was 12, I'm 25 now. I thought I would have every disease in medical history depending on a little pain or other small, ridiculous things. After many doctor visits, blood work, and tests, I feel better in that since knowing everything is normal.

Now to my current issue, I started working nights a little over a year ago. First time ever. The first few weeks went by ok. Then came the sleep issue. I hated going to sleep during the day. I would lay down around 10 and still not b out by 3. I would eventually get 4-5 hours but feel like I got none. So I made my biggest mistake, I looked up Insomnia on Google. I came across a disease labeled Fatal Familial Insomnia and Sporadic Fatal Insomnia. This was about 10 months ago and it has paralyzed me since. Its 4:30 right now. Other than a little doze off here and there, I haven't slept in 22 hours. I feel tired but can't sleep. I have a 3 day weekend. My sleeping was great for about 2 months, until this weekend. I feel like I'm loosing my mind, anxiety has gripped me, and I'm almost scared to try to sleep for some reason. I wonder everyday if I'm going to sleep or not. Not being able to snooze at night terrifies me. The fear of this disease makes it even harder to sleep.

Thanks for listening.
