Fell asleep alright when I went to bed, but I woke up and am still awake.  I must have only been asleep for just over two hours. 😦


At least I know I can still go to work tomorrow.

Last week I woke up and couldnt get back to sleep and only ended up having maybe just four hours sleep and still went to work.

I wasnt able to do this before, because I would get really anxious about not getting enough sleep and then have panic attacks.

Last week I was a little bit emotional and a bit teary, but that was a mixture of tiredness and the frustration re the contractors.

I was really hoping to get a good night sleep, so I could start the week off in a good way.

Sunday nights are usually a night that I have trouble sleeping because in my head I want to have a good night sleep to start the week off right and I think I must psyche myself out of it and I get a bit anxious.

A viscous circle.

Ah well.  I will probably be really tired after kung fu tomorrow night and crash.



and in comes insomnia

Youre back.  Damn it!

I was starting to enjoy a night that I slept through until the alarm went off or if I woke up I would go straight back to sleep.

It never lasts!

It’s been about a week since insomnia came back.

Im sooooo tired.

The longer it lasts, the more tired I get and then comes the more emotional and more depressed.

I took two of the sleeping tablets the doctor gave me a while ago and still could not sleep.  They just dont work.  I have some other sleeping tablets from another doctor that I got a while ago and they dont work either.

I was struggling this morning.  Within 15 minutes of being at work, which is when my “work husband” turned up, I felt like a cry.

We went for a walk and got a cup of tea and Im managing now, but am so tired.

I didnt go to work yesterday because I was sooo tired, so had a huge sleep in until lunchtime instead.

I just dont function when I cant sleep.

What does one do?  I know a lot of  “you all out there” also struggle with sleep.  How tiring is it?


sleep & hibernation

I feel so tired all the time.

All I want to do is stay in bed and sleep.

On a weekend I will only get out of bed when I get a cute paw on my face, which is his way of nicely telling me to get out of bed. Or if I have to wee.

I was going to meet up with friends for brekky this morning, but I just didnt want to get out of bed or leave the house. I hibernate all weekend and havent met up with the fitness group on a Saturday morning for a few weeks now.

I wish I never had to leave the house.

I dont even answer my phone.

When I not having issues with insomnia, which is now thankfully, I could sleep forever.  Im hoping the other night was a “one of”.

Even after only being awake for a couple of hours, I am ready to go back to bed and sleep.

My whole body feels tired.  I can even feel it in my arms and my fingers.
