2. Restless Sleep
When individuals with ADHD finally fall asleep, their sleep is restless. They toss and turn. They awaken at any noise in the house. They are so fitful that bed partners often choose to sleep in another bed. They often awake to find the bed torn apart and covers kicked onto the floor. Sleep is not refreshing and they awaken as tired as when they went to bed.

I have tried all the tips, the meds and some not mentioned. Nothing works for me. Makes me so tired and I have pretty much given up on ever getting a good nights sleep.
These short, restless nights have taken their toll on me physically (and probably mentally). I nap now during the day, usually around 1 in the afternoon, because by then I’ve been up for 9 hours and my body is sore.
Lack of sleep sucks the life right out of you.
Good luck to all of you trying to rest and restore your body.
I am envious of all people who can sleep peacefully, deeply and for a solid 6-8 hours consecutively!
