woi, insomnia

This is the third day in a row that I have gone to bed at twelve, and then at 3:30, presto chango: awake. Three and a half hours sleep. The hell?

I’m very tired, I just can’t fall asleep. But I’ll try again now. One thing I can tell you: in this situation you cannot (1) write fiction; (2) fix plugins; (3) touch your finger to the tip of your nose.

  1. I think I slept for two hours last night.  I feel like a zombie. I’m going to try for a little nap myself — but that sometimes ends up sabotaging me at bedtime.

  2. Yup, insomnia bites, with me it’s da achy bones, get so tired I could cry..well not ME, I wouldn’t.. ya know what I mean.:P

  3. Oh, I hear you.  I really do.  There must be something in the air, because I’ve been doing the same.  On the bright side, at least I’ll be awake in lots of time to be ready for the Dawn Service tomorrow…

  4. I had this same problem (asleep by twelve, wide awake by three) for about a month. No you can write. I literally had trouble stringing a sentence together in everyday conversations, felt disoriented and disconnected from everything going on around me. A friend suggested I try a herbal tea, Nighty Night, I think (got it at the health store). I still woke up at 3, but it did make me more relaxed/ ‘floaty’ before I went to bed, and, more importantly, I was able to get back to sleep after the 3 am wake up. Within a couple of weeks, I wasn’t drinking the tea anymore and I’ve been sleeping like a baby for about a month and a half now.
