Not good.

I’ve been suffering through this weird bout of insomnia.  It’s been going on for, oh gosh, I don’t know how long now.  But it’s really got me feeling horribly.  I’ve been managing to fall asleep when I go to bed — sometimes an hour or two after I go to bed, sometimes almost right away — then I’ve been waking up and staying up.  It’s like my body feels as if it is now time to wake up.  Like it’s saying, You got two hours of sleep.  That oughtta do ya!  And then, just when I think I’m only getting two hours of sleep — and after I’ve spent several hours doing everything but sleep — I fall asleep again.  That means that my best, deepest sleep takes place right about the time the alarm clock goes off.  And I feel like shit.  This is not doing me a bit of good.

Also not doing me a bit of good: this story on Oprah.com.  I read it a day or two ago, and I can’t get it out of my mind.  Now, not only do I have to worry about whether or not I’ll manage to get enough sleep to function, I also have to worry about what’s crawling around inside me.  So, you know, don’t read it if you, too, are the type to lie awake at night and dwell on these things.  Fair warning.

(And the tape thing?  Who would do that?  And what child would let you do that?)

    Yuck, I saw that show with Dr. Oz and thought the same thing. Sorry about your not so restful nights. I have taken tylenol PM before and slept great but that’s not really a cure. Not enough sleep is just plain sucky!!
