As I had said in my post from September 1, 2013, I did not invent the term, but the fact that Painsomnia has made it to the urban dictionary gives us chronically ill people a little validation.

So there you have it. I didn’t invent the term, but it exists in some level. Maybe health care professionals will get in with the program, and understand that painsomnia is real.
I wonder how long it will take to go from neologism/slang to an actual word.
