I haven't slept for days! I am a sleeper, I love to sleep....I have maybe had 5 hours in the last 5 days, so very unlike me. Thursday night I took a Unisom (they always help) at 9:30pm, by 11:30pm, I was still tossing and turning....so I took ANOTHER Unisom....nothing...I lay awake all night. On Friday morning I got up, showered and was lost! I could NOT function, so I took the day off, thinking I could really get some sleep...I was sooooo tired...I absolutely could not sleep. Last night, Friday, I think I got about 2 hours of real sleep...only reason I think that is, I remember dreaming...Am I going through menopause? Do I have too much on my mind? Am I stressed out? I don't know the answer. I just know that if I don't get some sleep soon, I am going to lose it.
Exercise might help? I walked up Ballyhoo Thursday after work with the dogs, so that didn't help....going to try walking again tonight, then I am going to stay at my sister's house (in my old room)....and see if a change of scenery will help. Maybe heavy drinking will help, I know I will pass out and not get the REM that is essential to one's well-being, but unconsciousness sounds so delish! I will be walking in the Polar Bear run tomorrow, sleep or not! (Unless the weather is really crappy, right Gigi?)
Today started out really icky, weather-wise, but it's pretty nice out right now. I have about 55 minutes until I get off work....things could change drastically by then. Pray that it doesn't...and pray that I can get some sleep tonight (my next post could get ugly, if not)!
