Taye Diggs reveals where it all began

On the podcast, Taye shared that his insomnia began when his son, Walker was born 13 years ago. He explained, “He wouldn’t sleep all the way through the night, so I wouldn’t know how many hours I would be awake, and then I’d have to work the next morning.”

Because his baby’s sleep schedule was unpredictable, Taye Diggs was anxious and couldn’t sleep. This ended up affecting his work because he was unable to truly rest.

He’s finally turning a corner

For a while, actor and Broadway star Taye Diggs tried to find ways to live his life while living with insomnia. But nothing really fixed it.

On the podcast, he shared what finally made him seek professional help. It sounds like he got a wake-up call from his son, Walker, and realized just how serious this issue was.

He explained, “And it wasn’t until just recently that my son took me aside and said, ‘What’s going on? You have work and then it’s time for us to hang out and you’re not really there.’ And that bothered me. So I finally checked out a doctor.”

Now, Taye Diggs is on a medication called Quviviq. And so far, he’s seen great results so far. The best part is that his son has noticed it, too. Taye said, “My kid can see a difference in how involved I am with him.”

Hopefully, things continue to improve so he can live his life to the fullest and enjoy his time with his son.
