I've searched the internet high and low as to how to recover from sleep deprivation. I'm quite an insomniac, and I'm finally trying to get into a better sleeping habit so that I can recover from my sleep deprivation and get my health back in line, but I keep reading everywhere on health sites that "you can't make up for lost sleep", which seems to imply that no matter how much a person improves their sleeping habits. they will always be a fatigued, depressed, unhealthy individual. You would think that after weeks of getting back on track with heathy sleeping habits, a person would start feeling better and more healthy again, but that's not what some health sites seem to apply. If anyone has sufficient knowledge on the topic, please provide an answer or explanation as to why health sites make it seem like those who got off track with their sleeping habits can't regain their health, and how a person can start to from better sleeping habits. I hope someone can explain this.
