I decided to make this small strip.
It is mainly about how people don’t understand that I can’t sleep or that I get woken up in the night due to night terrors.
Most people just assume I didn’t go to bed early enough. Some think I get up and stay up. Some think my mood lights (which help me sleep and cope with both my anxiety and depression) are stopping me from being able to sleep.
The truth is, I have insomnia/somniphobia due to my PTSD. And when I do sleep, I then wake up because of my night terrors – because of my PTSD.
