My mind is quite unquiet at night. I am also constantly fatigued. My long list of meds over the years have just made the fatigue worse, even stimulants.

I don't know about the dreams. My dreams are often disturbing, so I'm happy not to have them.

I used to have delayed sleep phase syndrome. I don't know why it went away, but it did, at least for now.

I have a large, bright light, of the kind that's used by people with SAD. In fact, nearly all the manufacturers are in Canada or Alaska. I plugged it into a timer so it would turn itself on at a reasonable time in the A.M. It worked, amazingly enough.

You said you tried everything, but did you try a light? They are expensive but have no side effects.

I.
