Just a little post to express just how vile it is to not be able to sleep. Over the last month I have gone from taking the sedatives that caused way too much sleep, to getting back to my old insomniac ways.
The doctor gave me a short term Zopiclone prescription to help with the transition off the meds, and last night I decided to go without as I was so physically tired from yoga and running I thought I could sleep without them.
Still awake at 3am I put on the ‘Sleep with Me’ podcast that has been helping me dose off recently, but then I had really weird dreams and what felt like very light sleep. I woke again and again and then just as I really felt I was off to sleep fully; Clifford jumped up onto the bed demanding his breakfast by meowing in my face.
I have work this morning and an appointment this afternoon. Maybe my head was too busy with thoughts of life, or maybe I need to meditate before bed, or take the sleeping pills – I don’t know.
What I do know is that my eyeballs hurt, and I am sleepy and grumpy (and possibly even more of the 7 dwarves) and today is going to be brutal.
