Speaker: Will L., Insomnia Clinic Patient
Tell us about your experience with sleep medications.
My name is Will and I’ve been depending on sleeping pills for 40 years. And I’m going to look at the notes where I’m asked to sort of be deliberate about my thoughts in order. The process is going to be The Insomnia Clinic’s. The words are mine and quite heartfelt. I tried from time to time to cut back on sleeping pills. It didn’t work. I kept fooling myself that I could stop any time. Is that familiar? And I also told myself, well it’s really not hurting me. It isn’t. It isn’t. It’s not really not hurting me. And then I came across, through a recommendation from my internist, my G.P. I came across Dr. Glidewell.
Tell us about your experience working with The Insomnia Clinic.
And I think the breakthrough, and much like almost any kind of a breakthrough. a breakthrough occurred when something actually happened. He convinced me that he had a process. He convinced me that he had a process that had worked for other people and could work for me. But until something happened and it was the meditation stage when I started doing the meditations that he recommended. And I saw how not only was I using less of the sleep medication, but life was better. Life was just better. And I said, okay, this this works and it has side unanticipated pluses. Side pluses. And where are we going now? I think that’s it. It says take a moment when you realized. There’s more work to be done. I’m going to continue with Dr. Glidewell until this is all behind me because I know it can be. And I’m enjoying doing this video partly because I want to share my experience and partly to remind myself that there’s more work for me to do with the Good Doctor. And as a matter of fact I’m seeing him tomorrow. And I think the last question is, what is life like now? Life now is better because I can see how to beat this addiction. I can see that, with Dr. Glidewell’s help, and his advice, his encouragement, his understanding, and maybe most of all his patience, I can beat this. And if I can beat this, who knows what else I can do. And again this is Will L. 40 years and not counting. Bye now.
