Hi, my husband has insomnia problem. Every day, he gets active after 10pm, even after having a tiresome day. This is everyday's case and i cannot help but get worried, he keeps playin or browsing in his mobile till 3-4am and sleeps till 10-11. This is affecting his performance also, but im not sure if he's gettin the point. From past 3-4months he gets angry very much. I tolerate it many times, but some times i lose control of myself and we fight.. I donno how to bring him to be a normal person.
