This episode is all about the connection between sleep and trauma. What are the sleep disturbances that people with PTSD or chronic trauma suffer and what kind of things can one do to sleep better?
This is NOT medical advice, is not a substitute for visiting your physician and is not entirely comprehensive. I wanted to give an overview about sleep, how trauma and PTSD disrupts sleep, and some suggestions for how to sleep better.
