Do I have Fatal Insomnia... really worried!!!!!

Okay now for almost 2 years on and off I have had random insomnia. The reason I had the insomnia though was because I thought I had a deadly insomnia called Sporadic Fatal Insomnia, the insomnia you don't have to have run in your family to have. Now this has since kind of gone away...the fear of having it anyway. But last night I was trying to go to bed at about 11:00 p.m. but I couldn't fall asleep. So I was tossing and turning for about 1 hour when I just sat up and watched some television until 1:15 in the morning. So I tried going back to bed and I finally did at around 1:25 a.m. I got up at 6:30 and then fell right back asleep and got up at about 8:10 a.m. Now my biggest concern was I have never had random insomnia when I wasn't stressed about the fatal insomnia because I wasn't thinking about it. I was really tired. Now I'm woried that I have this sporadic fatal insomnia because of my obsession with it. So I have 2 general questions:

Does it sound like this is the start of Sporadic Fatal Insomnia?
Do you get any sleep the first night symptoms start?

I'm only 18 yeras old too...please help me!
