    Is This Classic Insomnia? Confused and Worried
    An_252747 posted:
    A "friend" of mine is apparently suffering from what appears to be insomnia. This friend gets little sleep each night, which has a dramatic impact the following day. (This has been going for months now; the severity or intensity is not always the same, but for the most part this friend of mine rarely sleeps.) I hope that some of you can help me understand the situation a bit more, as I am very much in the proverbial dark.

    My friend is late 60's and has a healthy weight, makes healthy lifestyle choices, and has a good sense of self, from what I can tell. The sleep problems came on early this year, sometime around January; this friend's spouse has recently passed away - in January, my friend's spouse was in treatment for cancer, and that's when the apparent insomnia began.
