A sleep disorder specialist coins the term “Election Dysthymia” to describe her patients who couldn’t sleep because of the election and the anxieties that underlay it, reports The Daily Beast.

More times than I can count, I instructed my patients to discontinue watching politics or news well before bedtime, to disengage from their social media feeds and to create a sanctuary free of politics and media in order to regain some solace. Too many people were becoming both sleep deprived and angry or irritated and anxious at just the times they need to be able to fall asleep.
