Have you seen that commercial for a sleep aid, with the woman tossing and turning, her mind running a mile a minute? And you know when she rolls over and looks at her partner, thinking "How are you sleeping? Right now?!"
I am so familiar with that.
It's after midnight. I am exhausted. But I can't sleep.
Hubs is snoring away. Important to note - he has found a way to snore even with a CPAP mask. He is talented. (I know he can't help the snoring. I'm not blaming him. I'm just laying there looking at him and thinking "How are you sleeping? Right now?!")
On top of that we have a leak. The rhythmic drip of water coming down into the bucket is a lovely counterpoint to the snoring.
It's too late to take my sleeping pill. I do want to accomplish something in the morning. So, I've retreated to the couch downstairs. It's surprisingly comfortable.
I have the laptop, so I may get a bunch of work done. Or I may just compose more kind of pointless blog posts like this one.
Maybe I'll read. My mind is kind of mushy.
Do you suffer from insomnia? I never used to. The combination of my depression, anxiety, and peri-menopause has brought me this particular new challenge. Warm milk doesn't help.
What do you try when you can't sleep? Any ideas??
