I feel I have already opened a thead on this subject. Anyway I have suffered this curse for much of my life. I am suffering it now.. it is just after 6am in Sydney and I have been awake since 5.10. I have suffered from sleep deprivation for a long as I can remember. It was not uncommon for me to be still awake at daybreak. Now in my senior years it strikes me in the early hours. Who else is cursed by insomnia?
