Sorry for the late response everyone! This all makes sense. I've always struggled with sleep and over the summer my disorder worsened. I've tried getting on a regular sleeping schedule even without the melatonin but my bouts of insomnia always seem to mess that up. It's strange though... I've always had really intense dreams even before I discovered melatonin but the hormone does in fact increase the frequency of these dreams. I've also tried meditation which works sometimes. I've never tried sungazing though... but I've always known that seratonin is great for sleeping. I REALLY appreciate the advice guys! I think I may try to weene myself off of it but I really have no idea how to completely conquer the anxiety. By nature I tend to overthink and worry about little things which can cause the insomnia and even intense panic attacks.
