Musings and Snoozes

Musings and significantly less snoozes

on August 15, 2014


I had kinda hoped that the dulcet tones and emo sadness of Ryan Adams might lull me to sleep tonight. I’ll be honest, I’d even hoped that having the bed to myself and a distinct lack or husband related snoring might send me off to sleep. Even camomile tea and sleeping tablets! But alas no, it’s 3.30am and I’m once again still wide awake.

I used to get bouts of insomnia when I was in my teens (and better able to cope with it!) and I’m used to the odd sleepless night here and there, but after five nights. I’m beginning to lose the will a bit, especially as I can’t even find a pattern 😦

Originally I thought it might be work related. I’m thoroughly enjoying my new role, but it has been very full on, a fair bit of pressure, and I am desperate to do well and make sure this project works. So I thought maybe once my holiday started (Weds night) that I might switch off and chill, and I’ll be honest, I’m pretty sure I was in chill mode from about dinner break onwards, but it didn’t seem to make a difference.

As for tonight, I had such high hopes of finally getting a good night and being able to be fully awake and functioning tomorrow (or as much as general fibro meh allows) but since I definitely need to be up pre-lunch, I think I’ll just have to run on sleep dep and hope!

I should probably add this to the list of things to mention at the hospital next month, but I’m loathed to be stuck on more prescription drugs, which I suspect will be what’s on offer. Either that or camomile tea and meditation, both of which I’m already a pro at. Still, I made myself a promise to be more honest with my specialist, so if it continues to get more frequent, I’ll be good and have a whinge.

In other news…..actually I’m not sure I have other news! That’s what not sleeping does, dammit. Roll on the return of snoozes and some more exciting musings!
