Are the effects of chronic sleep deprivation reversible? I have been having trouble sleeping for past 3 years, and can the damage done be repaired?

In brief: Sleep evaluation

Sleep is essential to health.
You need to find out why you cannot sleep. You doctor can help you and give you a referral to a sleep specialist for an evaluation. Talk to your parents about this. Don't rely on caffeine or other substances to keep you wake during the daytime, or substances for sleep at night.
