Hi doc its me again I am officially a somniphobic individual Im finding it difficult to even get 2 hours of sleep at night the momment Im going off to sleep I feel I will either die and never wake up or begin to dream horrible amd morbid dreams, my uncle in JHB passed away on Sunday after a long battle with cancer I wasnt very close to him though I felt sad about it this only intensified my thoughts of thinking I will die in my sleep, although I was getting panic attacks in my sleep before I feel that thats what caused all of this to start off, can you tell me wayd to deal with this and trying to sleep I know i know its irrational but some reassurance would help and some way to overcome it...
