I had it at a time during my life. I was only getting about 2 hours of sleep a night while working. It really took alot out of me. I heard having 1 night of not so good sleep can really affect people. People already know this though.

I still have insomnia and it's hard getting by. There was this one time that my parents had to take me to the hospital because i wasn't sleeping and even eating for 5 days... i only have short sleeps like 5 minute sleeps during that time. but thankfully, nothing like that ever happened again. Just 2 days - 3 days max of no sleep :D

I'm glad it didn't last a long time because it gets really bad. Some people go for months like this. Maybe not as bad as getting just 5 minutes of sleep at a time but 1 to 3 hour naps daily. I had this problem for months or probably around half a year. I'm greatful it went away though because I started thinking I maybe like this permanently. I felt useless at the time because my activity level suffered.

I used to have insomnia. I guess it started because as a kid I like to stay up late then it became a habit that was too hard to break. It got so bad that I was not able to sleep for many days. I decided to try yoga to help me relax in addition to health benefits. Now, I can still stay up late but most nights I can relax at will and fall asleep for a few hours.
