The pandemonium of thoughts clustered his mind, blowing a wave of restless and intimidating experiences that are a thing of the past. People of his family were having their evening snacks, but he was lost somewhere in his thoughts. Who is he? About whom am I talking?
Naman, a 25-year-old guy with a rugged face and stylish hairstyle, was looking at his tea. His sister nudged him, and she said, " Have your tea, or otherwise you would be probably having a milkshake that doesn't taste good" she smirked. The jerk pulled him out of his thoughts, and he came into the present. What is agonizing him?
As the sun plunged and shadows lengthened, his mental state exacerbated. Thinking about yet another sleepless night made him anxious. It was 9 pm, and he had his dinner. Around midnight everyone in his family went to sleep in their bedroom, so did he. But could he sleep? The answer is 'No.'
Naman was an insomniac and a patient of panic disorder. Naman's anecdote gives us a peek into the life of an insomniac. Nighttime is the most difficult for insomniacs while others sleep with tranquility, the insomniac people deal with the whirlpool of intrusive thoughts. As rightly said, "Empty mind is a devil's workshop." Here, it implies that these people have nothing to do at night, and at the same time, can't sleep, which leads to all sorts of negativity.
Then, the sun rises in the morning for us. But for them, it brings yet another day of lethargy and torpidity. This lethargy happens due to a lack of sleep and results in a decreased productivity throughout the day. This happens day after day and night after night. This vicious cycle repeats itself.
Is there any cure? On a sanguine note, the cure for insomnia is there, which lies in treating the mental ailment which causes the former. By seeking help for mental issues and insomnia, the conditions can be mitigated, and they can live their life with exuberance by vanquishing the anxiety and torpidity.
