“The last refuge of the insomniac is a sense of superiority to the sleeping world.”

― Leonard Cohen

 

Insomnia.

Latin: In (“without”)+ Somnus (“sleep”)

 

Insomnia (in-SOM-ne-ah) is a sleep disorder. People who have insomnia have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or both. As a result, they may get too little sleep or have poor-quality sleep. They may not feel refreshed when they wake up.
