The trouble with sleep

Many people struggle with sleep. It is certainly a problem for many. Many ADHDers struggle with this as well. It isn’t something that is overlooked a bit, but slowly links between ADHD and sleep disturbances are being seen.

When it comes to sleep, there are a few things that ADHDers struggle with. We have a hard time falling asleep, staying asleep, and waking up. At the moment, there are different theories as to why so many have difficulty sleeping. However, many adults with ADHD are talking about this, and researchers are looking more into this, in order to understand more about the cause and link between ADHD and sleep.

At the end of the day, sleep is definitely important and doesn’t make it easy, when you cannot sleep, or have trouble with it. It can be difficult to get things done, with a rough night sleep. It can make it more difficult to focus or get things done, when you’re tired. I know this difficult for me, when I didn’t sleep well, and I know I’m not alone.

There are many reasons we struggle with sleep and there are different ways that can help get better sleep. Some may work for certain people and not for others. It’s really about finding what’s right and works for us.

At the end of the day, we all need sleep. It helps us recharge, and be able to function as best as we can during the day. I know I function a whole lot better with a good night sleep and it’s easier to manage my brain and my ADHD symptoms. I know it’s not always easy, but it’s something that we need in order to function and be healthy.
