Sleep is important

This is not me right now.

I am restless and can’t fall asleep.

I tried reading. I got through two hundred pages of a book and gave up.

I am frustrated.

I struggle with falling asleep every. single. night.

I don’t wake up in the middle of the night like I used to, but man, this night time insomnia is for the birds.

I have tried everything.

All the sleep hygiene things they say to do, I’ve done. Well, everything except keeping your bedroom only for sleeping. I mean, I live in here.

Other than that though, it’s been a journey.

I’m seriously considering just giving up and finding something to do. I don’t know what that is yet, because I took my night meds at nine and I feel tired, just not sleepy.

My biggest problem is that it is nearly 1 a.m. and I have to get up at 7:30 in order to shower etc for a therapy appointment.

I am useless on six hours of sleep. I mean, I can do it, but I am just not at my best.

Also, when I get this insomnia, I start ruminating and getting depressed, which is no good.

Sigh. Maybe I’ll sleep soon. Let’s hope.

    1. Yes! I sleep all through the night most of the time now. Still have a hard time falling asleep, but once I get there, I’m out.
