One Reply to “Insomnia & Depression”

  1. I found this article an ‘awakening’ for people like me, with insomnia and sleep disorders. I have life long depression, as a child I ate way too much white sugar, left n right , You would find me with it always. I wonder if my body knew (in large amounts no) but, it knew sugar was helping me for some reason?. Now, older and overweight, I try not so much to use sugar. I’ve been very depressed, sluggish, down, hard for me to motivate. I have been using sugar substitutes. Wow, who would have thought a little sugar goes a long way!. Currently Doctor prescribed Trazodone for me. I don’t agree with taking pills to fall asleep though, so I will try the little amount of sugar theory. Thanks! Cam
