Insomnia may be genetic
This article discusses how sleep research is beginning to demonstrate a genetic component to some insomnia. This really isn't brand new, as we always knew that only some people are prone to insomnia. However, it may one day help in treating this disorder. And it give some hope to insomnia suffers by quoting Dr. Espie, an insomnia expert across the pond. He mentions that psychological treatment for insomnia, even "genetic" insomnia is effective - I agree. If you're struggling with insomnia, find a sleep clinic that does cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia.
