Sleep issues


Topic starter

So a bit of context...

Last year I got a late diagnosis of ADHD (27 F). I always put my deep disturbances down to that and mental health. Since a child I always had night terrors, insomnia, day time tiredness,vivid dreams, falling asleep reading/tv/movie, falling asleep on short car journeys, and sleep paralysis. As much as it was distressing I just pushed it to one side up until 6 months ago when I had my little boy. I became increasingly more concerned as day time tiredness just isn't much of an option when you have a baby. Fast forward to now...

My baby sleeps well. I get an average amount of sleep but I cannot stay awake for the life of me. I went to my gp to raise concerns about my history with this but pointing out my concerns more so now that on more than one occasion I have literally just fallen asleep holding my baby please don't come for me, i already feel awful and i thank whoever was watching over us that night nothing happened Once it happened the first time I equipped myself up to literally force myself to stay awake and my partner sat with us but nothing worked, I literally just fell asleep whilst reading and holding him. I'm wrecked with guilt. My partner is back at work now but having to take over the night feeds if our son does wake up for safety reasons obviously. I noticed again that when I do fall asleep I immediately dream sounds & conversations to the point were when I wake up again it takes me a moment to realise I was dreaming and it wasn't actually reality. And to top it all off I sleep through my baby crying. My partner had been shaking me awake because I was sleeping through alarms and the baby crying. I have always slept through alarms and loud noises but I just feel an endless amount of guilt that I don't even hear my own baby crying at night and that scares me endlessly.

So fast forward to now. I have seen my GP and they just totally dismissed my concerns. I talked over everything and explained what has happened and how I was feeling and they just put it down to sleep deprivation even though I stressed this has been a very common theme for a number of years...

Now I do feel like I'm being a bit 'extra' but it's really niggling me and I just don't know what to do. Would you get a second option if you were in my position or does it not really sound like I potentially have a sleep disorder?

Not asking for a diagnosis of course, just some guidance would be gratefully appreciated...

So if you already have this sleep issue problem then you should know about this problem. Because this problem makes you angry and irritable all day long. So you should first solve the problem to remove your stress.


Sleep issues are problems that people have with sleeping, like not being able to fall asleep, stay asleep, or get good restful sleep. These problems can be caused by many things, including worry, nervousness, bad sleep habits, medical conditions, or medicines. Setting up a regular sleep schedule, making your bedroom comfortable, dealing with the root reasons, and, if necessary, getting medical help are all common ways to deal with sleep problems.


If you have had sleep problems since childhood, this can be a serious problem for you. How is it that you sleep too much? And now when you sleep at night you have such dreams. So I suggest that you should consult a doctor once. So is this sleep issue a serious problem?
