Some shocking insomnia statistics from the UK

The latest Great British Sleep Survey makes rather grim reading.

Apparently, more than half of all adults in the UK struggle with sleep - and women are three times more likely than men to have sleep problems.

The survey interviewed 11,129 adults and found that 25% of insomnia sufferers had lived with the condition for more than 11 years. Furthermore, of those who had trouble sleeping, 77% reported having trouble with concentration, 64% struggled to be productive at work and 83% weren't happy with their mood.

Why are we still seeing such shocking statistics? How can society allow individuals to suffer from such a debilitating condition for more than 11 years?

    How can we see such shocking statistics?

    I remember the days when menstrual cramps–even the ones that had women doubled over with pain each month for a day or more–were “all in your mind”. Women weren’t examined when the cramps were happening! I know, why submit a woman to more of her “imaginary” suffering while it was happening, but you can’t collect data when the condition isn’t present.

    Think of how, when we do get “treatment”, and how many of insomniacs are women, we’re often not tested for much more than ear/nose/throat/lung conditions, just given pills to shut us up, and the like: those methods really work for non-apneacs, those without chronic pain, and those whose insomnia is occasional, right? Oh, and how many of us take, and must take, medication that disrupts sleep cycles? Go ahead, blame the victim for something out of their control: that works well, doesn’t it?

    That’s why we’re here.
