I really need a place to vent so here goes. I'm a 13 year old girl and I have insomnia. I think I've had it for like 2 years. But I feel like the longer I have it the worse it gets. My dad doesn't believe me when I say I've got it. Even when I told him that the doctors said I have it too he still didn't believe me. He thinks that I make myself stay up late and I choose to sleep in. It isn't even my fault. Today me and my mum got into an argument. She told me I have to try harder to wake up early. I told that it's not my fault that I go to sleep so late. She started shouting at me that I have to do something and that this can't carry on any longer. I told her I don't know what to do. In the end my mum told me she is gonna confiscate my phone until I start to wake up at an acceptable time. I gave her my phone willingly and told her that taking it is not actually going to do anything but if it makes her feel any better she can have it. She went and I just sat on my bed crying because I didn't know what to do. Barely 5 minutes later I can hear her complaining about me to my older brother about how I blame everything on her and I don't make an effort to fall asleep and wake up. This really hurt me because it not like I want to have insomnia. I definitely don't enjoy having it. I hate it so much because I really want to fall asleep. I lie in bed for hours with nothing but my thoughts trying to fall asleep but I just can't. I know it sounds really stupid, having trouble going to sleep and waking up but it causes so much problems in my house and I just want it to stop. My dad shouts at my mum and says stuff like why am I still no awake. I think that's what annoys my mum the most and I don't blame her. If I could fix it I would but I really can't so I just want her to realise that it's not my fault.
