Exactly this. My fear of sleep is a symptom of my anxiety. In the last years I was able to identify some cause for my mental issues and fears and with that my somniphobia started get better. I have not beaten this yet fully, but I am in a much better state now than I was in 2015. I think the most important thing to work on yourself and develop senf-knowledge with a good therapist. Good luck everyone! I wish everyone could be free of this terrible fear!Third, at least with me, I’ve learned that somniphobia is not a cause, but a symptom or a manifestation of my anxiety, as I don’t experience it at all when my life and anxiety is stable and under control.
