I do not know much about Imsomnia myself. But I wish to share my personal opinon here. It is probably wisest to tell your parents, tell a school nurse, tell a school therapist, etc. I think they can help you out a lot! I know Imsomnia is a nasty thing, but hopefully you'll be able to tackle it sucessfully. Good luck!
