Insomnia & Anxiety

I’m scared right now. I want to see therapist for my depression and anxiety but I’m scared to tell my mom about it. Any time I have ever talked to my family about anything like this they all just tell me that “it will be okay” or that “I’m too young to experience that” but neither of those help. I need real help. If any of you have gone through something like this and was scared to tell your parents, please help me.

Every Sunday to Monday night, I only sleep for 2-3 hours. I'm feeling alone and afraid of tomorrow. It gets worse every weekend.

I’ve been up for hours stressing about going to see a therapist tomorrow, I’m super nervous and I don’t know why. I keep making up these irrational situations that would never even happen. I’m so tired but I can’t sleep! I don’t know what to do...

since i’m waking up early for school it seems like it’s getting harder to sleep in or nap- even though i usually don’t- but on weekends i can’t sleep as much as i wanna and now i’m starting to wake up more and more throughout the night. the amount of sleep i get every night is starting to decrease. does anyone have any tips?

Can't sleep today again. Had some melatonin and i am hoping the effects would kick in soon. I'm twirling around my bed like an insect being tortured. I don't know how to deal with a lot of things happening and the realisation of so many toxic things i have done for the entire life is too much for me to handle. Yet i cant afford to stop working and my society does not recognise mental and emotional health. What should i do.

The other night I think I had sleep paralysis I felt awake but I couldn’t move or even open my eyes I remember feeling terrified. Then all of a sudden I heard screaming in both ears and woke up fully. I’ve been so scared to fall asleep again ive actually been trying to avoid it.

No puedo dormir, me siento cansada pero no logro conciliar el sueño. Mi mente no deja de maquinar cosas y me aturden.

A Japanese legend says that if you can’t sleep at night it is because you are awake in someone else’s dream. I guess I should be grateful then, that someone else is dreaming of me. But I haven’t gotten more than theee hours of sleep nightly in 17 days and I wish my eyes would get a rest too.

Listening to calming music. Turning OFF my phone (Bwahaha), petting my cat, just closing my eyes, stiffening all my muscles tight then completely relaxing them a couple times...all can help me ease into sleep sometimes.
