Hi, I just joined today. I've had horrible insomnia a few times in my life. I am currently going through it for the first time in seven years. Triggered by worries at work that I allowed to spiral out of control until worrying about sleep ends up being a source of constant anxiety - with feeling of adrenaline, shortness of breath, etc. I don't know how I made it through today after about three hours of sleep last night and six in the last 48. When something similar happened seven years ago, I used Ambien and eventually got over it. I'm about to try Xanax for the first time - very afraid of building up dependency and/or tolerance.

I thought I would join this site to see if I could learn something.
