insomnia and anxiety and japan.

well over ninety percent of my patients this week complained of insomnia. for most of them, this is their first experience of not being able to sleep. the vast majority of them said that the insomnia was caused by anxiety. they were either unable to fall asleep, or woke during the night and were unable to fall back to sleep. every single one of these patients said they were thinking about the recent events in japan.
