It’s safe to say that sleep is an entirely different entity for those struggling with anxiety and/or depression. It’s not easy, its lack or extreme excess can affect all aspects of one’s life, and it can become entirely cyclical, generating more strain, alienation, and physical, mental, and emotional unwellness.
