They're not working! I still can't get to sleep.
Isn't it just the pits when you can't fall asleep even when you're bone tired? There are times when my body craves sleep, but my mind just won't cooperate. So I toss and turn, and toss and turn some more for a couple of hours until sleep finally claims me. Or worse, just when I'm falling asleep, something in my subconscious wriggles--and I'm wide awake again. So I toss and turn until I feel like some damned salad. *sigh*
I used to be a sleep champ. All I needed to do was to crawl into bed whenever I felt sleepy and presto! I was dead to the world. My sleeping hours used to be quite lengthy too. Nowadays, I get a lot less than the recommended eight hours.
Sometimes I think my insomnia is taking its toll on me. I'm starting to have memory lapses. I feel like I'm Dory, that blue fish in...what was the name of that Disney film again? The people here should thank their lucky stars that I don't drive.
I'm so up to my eyeballs in sleep debt. I really need to pay it off soon, because the interest rates could be deadly. Heigh-ho, heigh-ho, it's off to bed (again!) I go, yadda yadda.
Many things--such as loving, going to sleep, or behaving unaffectedly--are done worst when we try hardest to do them. --C.S. Lewis
