Fear of Sleeping, Anxiety, Depression.

I have suffered sleep disorders on and off for several years. But they always tapered off without a concern. On May 18th, 2011, I had difficultiy falling asleep and then developed a fear of sleeping and becoming unconscious and losing control. Also, I can hear myself snoring when about to sleep, which awakens me. Hearing my own snoring commenced on May 18th, 2011 as well.
I have sought out medical, sleep study and Psychologial fields with little help. The fear of my sleeping/not sleeping has increased dramatically and is interferring with my daily life cycle.
I am currently taking anti-anxiety and anti depressant medications to combat this situation, but also with little success. I am afraid to take sleeping pills even though they have helped.
Can anyone help me as this is a living Hell.
