Just an excuse to invoke a Deep Purple song, or is it something more insidious.
My sleep issues are back with a vengeance. I was awakened around 4:00am by some rude behavior from one of the cats. Once I get woke up at that time there’s no going back to sleep. I ended up sitting in front of the computer and not accomplishing much of anything. Finally I went back to bed and tossed and turned. Then I got back out of bed and started unpacking our stuff from the weekend so I could say I at least got something done. And when it was 6:15 I stared getting ready for work.
I have never had an easy time sleeping. Part of it is my damn ADHD, which can keep me awake long after my beloved is flat on her back and snoring like a locomotive (yes dear, you do). But I also have a hard time staying asleep and that started a few years ago. Were I independently wealthy, I could sleep whenever I wanted and not have to worry about working in an office with somewhat strict hours. But I am not so I do. Sucks to be me sometimes.
So right now I feel like I have hit the wall. I have found that this does not guarantee sleep. Nosiree. Only Nyquil guarantees sleep. Instead I am having a bottle of Oktoberfest and maybe I’ll chew a melatonin. If you see me posting in the AM you’ll know that the grand plan failed. But at least I got to have a beer.
