A few months ago, it hit me that having insomnia for the past 26 years means I have a chronic condition. I hate having a chronic condition. I don’t want it to be ‘part of me’. Ugh. twitter.com/bittersouth/st…

If you struggle with insomnia, Arkansas writer Jan Jolly understands. In this essay from Issue No. 3 of The Bitter Southerner magazine, Jan writes about her 20-year battle with insomnia, all she's tried to overcome it, and how she came to live with it. bittersoutherner.com/feature/2022/e…

I have struggled with insomnia for most of my life too. While listening to sleep stories has helped me a lot, I did learn a long time ago not to stay in the bed if I can’t sleep. I just get up and do things until I’m sleepy. twitter.com/BitterSouth/st…
