What a time!
I have had an incredibly difficult time trying to sleep. Just about 6 nights a week, I finally lay my head down around 3:00 a.m. the following morning. I generally dose off in between 3:30 a.m. & 4:00 a.m. I get up about 7:00 a.m. every morning unless I have a meeting and need to arise around 6:00 a.m. On Sunday mornings I get in the bed around 3:00 a.m. and I sleep until 10 or 10:30 a.m., an average of about 7 or 7.5 hours. I can’t find sleep Monday –Saturday. I know I need it but to go to bed and just lay there makes no sense because I can clean, or type or do something useful. But I know I need sleep. Almost every research study cites the importance of getting the appropriate amount of sleep yet, still, I don’t feel tired.
My mother called to tell me that several people saw me and thought I look unhappy. Maybe I look vacant by the eyes since I am only getting maybe 27 hours of sleep a week when 56 is more appropriate. I do know that stress can cause this and so can so many other things. But I refuse to take anything to help me sleep as my best friend suggested. I know eventually I’ll get so tired that I’ll crawl to the bed. So if you see me, I am not unhappy but I’m dog tried, overworked and overly stimulated. But it is all good, because I am doing what I love to do.
BTW, it would be great if someone could tell me how to repair my right column. That happened to me before but I can't think of how I corrected the problem.
