Generally speaking, I don’t talk about my views on politics, religion or sport because the subjects are all divisive bullshit. But the EU referendum and its subsequent fallout are too big to ignore.  

In fact, I had never voted before the…

Insomniacs: Why do we compare ourselves so harshly?

As members of the sleep-deprived generation you know, we hear the judgements in people's voices and heads all the time.

“Can’t sleep? Go to bed earlier then!”

Vincent's twits

About is a FREE social network, blog site, and chat forum for people who and when they cannot sleep or with sleep related issues that they live with. It’s a place to chat, post blogs and join in forum debates and discussions about you experiences with insomnia and related issues.

It is not a place offering you a cure. We open debates and discuss our ideas and theories as well as things that have and have not worked well for us but we do not try and “fix you” because first off we don’t think you are broken.

But its not just about insomnia. It is a place to express yourself creatively if you wish, express your thoughts and opinions on what is going on in the world.. the things that are keeping you up at night..

We do believe that the first step to living a healthy, enjoyable and rewarding life with insomnia is learning acceptance of it as part of your life whilst not letting define your life. But from there it really is up to you as to what works for you as an individual.

We bring our experience of 20+ years living with insomnia ourselves as well as the studies into areas of psychology, NLP and sociology to see if we can shed some light onto what is happening and maybe give some ideas as to tips and tricks that may help you.

Unfortunately the owners of this site cannot be on here managing it 24/7 and so may not be able to be on the live chat at all times. As this is not funded by a business we have day jobs to do and so as of yet have not found a way to be on here when the majority of our users in the US are because we are based in the UK.

We suggest the best way to be a part of the community is to share your experiences on your blog on your personal page. You can also customise your page to suit your tastes and show a bit of individuality.

We expect respect for all. Keep the content relatively clean and mostly enjoy being part of a community that is growing in voice about the condition of insomnia. Please post and share our content around the social media outlets around the web and let the message be heard.

Most of all enjoy in the acceptance of your insomnia and the knowledge that it does not define you.

Please note: you will never receive any emails from us asking you to buy a product or service, or for your bank account details in any way shape or form, if we were in this for the money we would have left years ago, if you receive anything like this it is SPAM and should be deleted and reported to Vincent D either on my profile page or through a direct message in the internal mailing system.  Thank you.
