Nope, this is not common.

I used to have worrying thoughts and nightmares long time back. But not anymore.

Now my dreams are always about visiting some interesting places. None of the long-existing problems in my life are solved but I don't wake up thinking of my worries.

Clean your conscience. Medicines may help, for overcoming obsession/OCD etc. But it's better to change your diet to let your body fix the problem on its own.

When I have office work left for the next day I cant sleep at all. Even if I finish my part for the day till 10-11 pm and things are left to discuss with co-workers the next day I cant sleep.

Office work and activities keep running through my head even in subconscious state. Then after 2-3 hours I get nightmares and my heart is pounding a lot. I try to take deep breath and sleep but by then its over. I cant sleep again.

I tried psychiatrists but in India they are businessmen in disguise. No help. I dont want to depend on medicines.

I work out daily. I get up in the morning early and go to bed at the right time. I dont watch a lot of TV and have a healthy diet. Sometimes I think I should just get out of this city life and start living in Himalayas or something. But even that is not possible for us middle class people with a lot of stress and no financial backing.
if you are really serious in trying this, i could give you two suggestions, which were told by my grandma to do this every night irrespective of whether you have problem or not: 1. Concentrate your mind on your breath and try deep inhale and exhale 10 times 2. Say "Om Namah Shivaaya" ==> 30 times with your mind concentrated on the mantra ==> Shiva, if you consider as a physical form as god, is layakaara.. means not only dissolves the cycles of yugas but also temporary layas such as making all beings getting into sleep So try this everyday and see if your situation improves. Generally my grandma used to say that one doesn't get sleep when they think too much about anything and can't stop thinking at all. So concentrating your mind on breath and after that chanting Om Namah Shivaaya gives your mind no thoughts and has the power to make one sleep. She got this advice from her grandparents and parents ! It may take some time for you to come back to normal situation. Don't worry about anything friend and don't go too much of extreme thinking about anything. Note that your body is just a temporary vessel and we are here just to realize being oneself. By the way, though I don't have any sleeping problems, I do this everyday out of respect for my grandma's wisdom.

Try yoga and meditation. They did wonders for me. For meditation you can think of your favourite god irrespective of religion and keep chanting his mantra in mind. If atheist, just concentrate on the area between ur eyebrows, imagine there is something (like a burning candle or any other object and keep counting 1,2,... as you inhale and exhale. And breathe slowly. Do this for just 15 mins in the morning after exercising everyday.

clinical depression can give insomnia especially waking frequently during sleep. if insomnia is due to anxiety, ocd, adhd, add etc then there will be trouble falling into sleep due to over thinking but once in sleep no problem. also there will be trouble getting out of bed once fall into sleep as in these the mind always thinking about one thing or another.

Psychiatrists are probably not a good idea. Many of them are no better than drug dealers and will hook you on to highly addictive benzodiazepines .... be very careful if they prescribe you these.

Sort of. I am more obessive than workaholic. i dont want to stay in office for more than working hours. i try to run away from work. but when i get something to do im obsessed with it. i want to sit and complete it in one go. any delay makes me anxious. if something isnt completed that day then i can never sleep. that is guaranteed. whether im unable to understand some requirement or whether i need more input from team members/user... that kind of delay i cant sleep with it.

2. Do u hv a high sexual desire?
Im 29 years old. I have no sexual desire when i see others. i am addicted to porn and sexting with women online. but im not that horny. i have had gfs. but wasnt in rape mode. i do jerk off almost everyday

3. Do u have ideas of grandiosity...imagining urself to be much more than what u actually are in terms of wealth and so many other things....?
No. i dont run after money. i dont own a car. dont invest. i have a simple life.

4. Do u plan grand commercial ideas in ur mind....?
No. even survival is not that important to me.


5. Do u go on a shopping spree somtimes even buying things u dont need?
That is subjective. satisfaction in life has no limit. we couldve been satisfied as cave men as well. surviving on nature in grass clothing.

6. Do u ignore ur personal needs when it comes to meeting office deadlines...?
no. i have a set schedule and i am obsessed with it. i like to go out at the same time and come back home at the same time. i want to work out 1-2 hours a day.

7. Do u spend late hours at ur workplace without reason?
I have done that. but after a lot of pressure n protest from managers.

8. Do u find faults in other human beings most of the time?
Yes. but genuine faults. like literring, spitting, corruption, bad behavior, bad morals/principles


9. Do u see the glass half full most of the time?
absolutely not. very negative in life.

10. Difficult to make friends?
No. I talk to strangers a lot when im sitting with them. sustaining friendship is difficult for me. to be honest your parents/siblings (blood) are your true friends. rest everyone else is acquaintance. they are with you as long as u guys are in same social circle or vicinity. and no one is taking a bullet for you.

11. Difficult to adjust with other humans including family members?
I have lived almost in solitary confinement. So adjusting would be difficult. but im also dependent on others for a lot of things. so cant survive independently.

12. Irritated by even minor things and even things like maids hanging around ur house ..LOL?
That wasnt a minor thing. screaming and howling going on in the afternoon and when you can barely hear telephone calls and them littering the lane near ur place with banana peels etc being thrown near ur house is annoying.

13. Obsessed by doing things in a particular way only...?
Yes

14. Obsessed about travelling in particular routes only?
Yes

16. Gambling streak?
Dont gamble. dont drink. dont smoke. dont party. dont socialize. barely active on fb. not in contact with school/college mates.

17. Difficult to love a female but ready to fuck one if opportunity presents itself and then say bye without any emotion....?
At this point in time everything is a headache. i do love a woman and she loves me but i run away from her a lot. and come back. not interested in fucking either way.

18. U walk fast u talk fast u do things fast fast....
Yes


19. U delve deep into other people's statements and find hidden meanings in them?
Sometimes. Im quick to judge so not a lot of time is spent pondering over what they meant


20. U can get into a raving crazy mode and very abusive with raves and rants if provoked....?
No. I get really angry and abusive when i see something wrong happening. like people driving fast ready to hit others. people sitting on the floor of the train when it says not to. disobeying laws and common social rules.


21. Unihibited sometimes without a care for people around u...?
Not really. I dont break rules. I am straight and do the right thing.

22. U love lonely places, hideouts...and like ur privacy...?
No. I like streets and lanes. exploring how people live. I like privacy yes.

23. U snack in the middle of the night....?
If I cant sleep and end up surfing the web. or after masturbating.

24. Have particular fixation about certain types of females or female body parts...?
Well the kind of woman i like is of a certain type, body wise etc. yes. but in real life i dont look at women in potential partner sense. who am i to think how they should be when im not myself mr 100%

Tried several psychiatrists, meds, psychologists, counselors, phone helplines etc. Many bad experiences. In short they are businessmen that go hmm hmm acha ok.. then what did you... ok ok... why do you think that happened. 5 minutes talk and 1500 rupees. come next week. when no solution or guidance is provided and they are conditioning a diseased persons brain to figure life out themselves... then im sorry i cant go through that silly procedure for years. In western world they atleast give 50 minutes to a patient. here there are more lines in these clinics (shocking) than general doctors... and even here indians are going... can i go first please? shes old... let her go first. bullshit.

Dont have patience for yoga and meditation. I do work out but that is just for the body not the mind. Marriage comes with responsibilities. Right now in single life to avoid stress you can say FUCK YOU to your manager n company and go do any other job. but once ur married u cant. Plus there are fake cases of dowry n harrassment... and divorce alimony etc things that are happening so cant trust anyone.glgl
thanks for giving answers, from all what you have said you have attention deficit disorder or in short ADD. its similar like ADHD but in this the hyper active part is no there meaning you can focus on anything which you find interesting for very long time. there are many positive aspects of it but the negative part is you unable to shift you focus quickly or like a normal person, due to that you get stuck in some thing even negative ones. this is why get annoyed by small small things like littering, people behavior etc or quickly respond to these small small things as there is impulse control issue in add/adhd. other side effect of this is obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). it can manifest in various forms like either contamination ocd, symmetry, perfectionism and many others.

Thats like eating at a shitty restaurant and declaring all restaurants in the country are shit.

Go to a psychiatrist, get correct medicines in correct doses. Take a second opinion if you don't trust doctors that much.

In mental health field, theres' no way a single medicine is perfect for single disease.
one medicine which may work for me wont necessarily means it'll work for you.

going to reputed psychiartrist will ensure that you get correct medicine in correct dose for your problem

no no no no never do that never....

jerk off whenever u hv a very very strong desire to work out ur fantasies....and u hv the privacy...it does not matter even if it is early morning or late noon .....

Do not let ur brain link it up to any particular time of the day or night and least of all before sleeping......Dangerous conditioning....if u continue to do that u wont get sleep unless u masturbate.....

but rather than jerking if u can find a good mate ...better....
