Lately, I seem to have some difficulty sleeping. I don’t wish this on anyone and after years of watching my husband having insomnia I now have a slight insight in to what he has been going through. I had no difficulty getting to sleep tonight but I almost feel as though we have a newborn in the house as any noise seems to waken me and its the sensitivity and being “on duty” again.
I don’t know if it is because I slept most of the day after being on night shift for 3 days but I was very tired today and really shouldnt have had any difficulty sleeping right through until tomorrow morning when I am due to waken at 07:00am for a personal training session which is long over due! Is it the stress at knowing that I can’t sleep in ?It may also be the stress that I have a busy day ahead of me with the nursery run followed after then going straight to a meeting with minimal chance of being late. I hate being late! not sure if its connected to my mother always telling my dad that he would be late for his own funeral….
Whatever the reason, I am stressed about this insomnia and my jaw is currently tight, teeth grinding and back feeling like a dog when they get their shackles up when experiencing fear. yeah, i feel like a dog… although right now I wish I was like my own dog who is currently lying on my couch, curled up into a tight ball, snoring and looking very comfy and warm. Now wouldn’t that just be the ticket!?
I’m sure that writing that reaching for the computer and writing this post at 02:30am is not the best idea, reinforced by someone on twitter who said “remember the good ol’ days when you used to switch your phone off at night”? Heaven forbid! Its the first thing I reach for when l wake at silly o’clock when I can’t sleep… and there is my answer I suppose. They say being on the computer or watching v late at night stimulates you more than a can of red bull. Hmmmm I have to agree. So off I go, may have a cup of tea first(bad , I know) to meet the gate keeper of sleep.
