Assess and treat: In many cases it can be treated or managed. First step - a medical consultation to rule out medical conditions, medication, etc. A psychological or psychiatric eval can determine if the insomnia is really part of a treatable psychiatric condition, and practicing good sleep hygiene / working with a psychologist can help. http://cpancf.com/articles_files/sleephygienehandout.asp.

Get help: Not only for your relationship, but simply for you, i hope you're getting help? Your info shows both insomnia and ptsd, but no treatments. You can get this by working with a psychiatrist and/or psychologist or other psychotherapist. Insomnia is often part of ptsd -- sometimes active fear or resistance to relaxing one's guard enough to fall asleep. Help is available though, and there is hope.
