Is it normal to take up to 7 hours to fall asleep?

For as long as I can remember, I haven't been able to fall asleep unless a lot of conditions are met (Sleeping with a body pillow, very cold room, fan running, etc.) and even then it sometimes takes 7 hours to fall asleep. If this helps with the question, I have clinical depression which is known for causing some sleep deprivation.

Is It Normal?

  • I've had many'a nights where I tossed and turned for an eternity. It can take anywhere from 1 to 8 hours for me to fall asleep. Sometimes I have the luxury of sleeping half the day away, but other times I can't because I have my morning job and I'm a damn cranky ass zombie, but the doggies make it a little better. Harrumph. #dogbather,holla!

  • Same here. It takes me hours to fall asleep while it only takes minutes for my dad. It’s sucks that I gain hairy legs from him but not that. But trying drinking chamomile tea, I heard it makes you drowsy.

  • It’s normal (especially with depression), even though I don’t have any depression/other mental health issues, it regularly takes me 2-3 hours to fall asleep.
