So sorry to hear that! Anxiety can unfortunately impact sleep and our children’s fears can show up and disrupt their sleep. Have you tried melatonin? Many kids with anxiety and ocd have lower melatonin levels. Also, it can help to address these fears and intrusive thought (themes) during the day and tackle it head on. That way it doesn’t ooze into her sleep state as frequently.
