  • I have childhood onset insomnia . Caused by an imbalance in the sleep/wake center of the brain. I am 69 and my doctor has been treating me for 15 years with meds. It’s a blessing to get some relief with meds but I have to keep changing them as the body builds a resistance. Would like to hear from anyone with insomnia that started in childhood and they still have it
