I have experienced real bad insomnia in recent years. I will sometimes go up to 2 days without any sleep.

I have a whirlwind of thoughts as I lay down and try to sleep and since I live alone, laying there by myself makes me feel just that much more lonely. I had become almost terrified of the silence and took to putting the radio on while I try to fall asleep. It provides false company as I lay there alone and it helps to take my mind off of my negative thoughts so I can more easily fall asleep.

It can be a terrible ordeal especially after a couple days or more with almost no sleep. You feel horrible afterwards and can hardly think and function.
