If you must use a screen, use a program like red moon, flux, red shift. To turn the red up or the blue down.
I’ve read a lot of people have success with CBT. I.e. don’t hang out in your bedroom, only sleep there.
Go to bed at the same time every day. Don’t ever sleep in if you can help it, but maybe allow yourself a quick nap or two (10-15 minutes). I find that forcing myself to stay awake during the day leads to involuntarily being awake at night.
Only use caffeine in the early morning and not too much. I metabolize caffeine quickly and still have to limit myself to one cup of coffee in the morning.
Stay off the screens at night, including TV. This one is the hardest because I’m social and like to text with my friends. The red shift stuff is still not sufficient. I find low temperature incandescent bulbs are ideal, the actual brightness of the bulb doesn’t matter vs the temperature. Read a book. But a lot of the kindles have blue/white leds you can’t turn off completely, so a real book in that case.
Earplugs or noise dampening panels/pillows/etc.
Blackout curtains or an eye mask if there’s artificial light coming in your windows at night. This ends up biting me in the morning as the sunlight helps to gradually wake me up, but beats not sleeping at all.
Wish I could help, that sounds really hard. I hope you figure something out.
I'm guessing you've tried stuff like timing your eating, and orgasms , and maybe even exercise to bring on a convergence of tirednesses (if that's what they do for you)?
I hate to be "that guy", but weed
I'd recommend an indica strain for sleeping, you can look up different types on leafly.com
Have you considered medication?
While my situation was less usual, I complained about not being able to sleep for a few days straight to urgent care staff, and they prescribed me Hydroxyzine (Vistaril), and that worked for me. I then changed my antidepressant to Mirtazapine (Remeron), which has sedative/anxiolytic effects, and was able to stop taking the medication that the urgent care prescribed. For exotic harassment that disrupts sleep, I have a chapter in my survival guide.

To treat chronic insomnia:
-Turn off wifi at night
-Unplug all electronics in your bedroom
-Move bed away from any electrical outlets
-Sleep with your head away from the wall, so your head is in the center of the room
-Check the proximity of your bedroom to any electrical boxes, cable boxes, smart meters, circuit breakers, etc...
-Measure the RF in your room with an RF Acoustimeter ($370 on amazon.com)
-Measure the Electrical fields and Magnetic Fields in your room with a Trifield Magnetic Meter
-Take Cat's Claw (~4000mg), NOW brand is good, to reduce inflammation in your brain.
-If you live near a cell or radio tower, move immediately
-Avoid proximity to power lines, comcast wires, and high voltage appliances
-Sleep off the ground since Co2+ builds up on the floor from screen electronics
-Move computer proximity to 2+ feet away
-Avoid keeping cellphone on your person
Most definitely, your chronic insomnia is caused by non-ionizing radiation.
American Association of Environmental Medicine: Exposure to non-ionizing radiation is the greatest risk to human health in the 21st century.
Windheim EMF Solutions
AAEM RF Position
5M Laminated Paper, tape over computer screens to block positive ions
Velostat, for blocking EMF
All the + minerals on the left side of the periodic table: Calcium, Magnesium, Lithium, Potassium, Sodium, Beryllium (found in carrots), Hydrogen (water)
- Vitamin E (in nuts, protects from DNA damage in the brain from non-ionzing radiation)
+Iron (for rebuilding tissue)
+Phosphorus and Glucose (main ingredients for DNA, eggs and carbs)
+Flax Seed Oil (for plant omega 3s)
Nuts+Dark Chocolate+Almond Milk+Gatorade+Aquafina(low NaF water)+Carrots+Beef+Eggs(or milk with phosphorus added)
I also recommend kimchi and raw milk for a diverse vegetable and milk probiotic.
This guide is designed to give you the resources necessary to cure your insomnia.
All it does is reduce RF exposure to a minimum, treats the over active neurons that can't shut off with Cat's Claw to help them cool off, and provide the nutrients necessary to repair the damage. Honestly you might be fine with just turning the wifi off but I wrote this for a worst case scenario thing.

have you looked at your light sources? make sure all your light bulbs are (yellow) warm light and not daylight (blue) light. Don't use electronic screens after 9pm, and if you do, turn the brightness all the way down. That stuff really interferes with sleep patterns.
Also, learn to meditate so you can turn your mind off at will.
Eat tryptophan containing foods - nuts, seeds, bananas.
