Oh my gosh yes! I really do feel for ya and believe me I understand too. Its a vicious cycle too. B/c not getting enough sleep often triggers anxiety episodes and anxiety episodes trigger sleeplessness. Here are some things I do to fight this. The BIGGEST number one thing I'll get right to it is supplements. I used to take sleeping pills but they didnt keep me asleep [just like you.] So I heard about Melatonin, by watching Dr.Oz, lol [I love that dude!] And now I take between 1.5mg and 3mg every night about 1 hour before I want to be asleep. Along with that I take a calcium supplement too [w/vitamin D3 and magnesium.] I take my calcium at night b/c its also a natural sleep aid. I find that the melatonin actually helps with anxiety too.
Besides that its all about mood in your bedroom. Make sure when you go to lay down its completely dark in your room b/c any light will register even in your sleep and keep you from reaching that deep deep sleep that you want. Try to have orange light at night in your room and it will help relax you as well. Also take a soothing bath with lavender. Soft music and reading get me really relaxed to and for me i need to be really relaxed before bed not only to get to sleep but to get wouned down enough for that really good and deep slumber.
Hope this helps, hang in there
