Insomnia


Saturday, January 18, 2014

I don't think I got more than 2 hours of sleep last night. I couldn't get to sleep. Weird things is I am not tired today. It is okay. I will try and get to bed at my normal time tonight and sleep until I wake up tomorrow. I don't have to be anywhere until 3pm. We are having a family dinner to celebrate my SIL and my mom's birthdays. They aren't actually for another week, but tomorrow is when everyone is free, so they get to celebrate together early.

Got Cooper for his three walks, and also did a little yoga and ST. So I am feeling pretty good about how the day went. Also had lunch with mom and dad and my brother. Cooper loves going out there. He gets so excited that he farts, and when he does he scares himself. It is pretty funny.

    I have struggled with insomnia all of my life (par for the course with CPTSD), and you have my sincerest sympathy.

The interesting thing about missing *one* night of sleep, though, is that some recommend it as a mood booster to help kickstart a new antidepressant medication. Oddly enough, if you are gentle enough with your demands on yourself today, lost sleep (when rare) can be a mood booster!

Wishing you restorative slumber tonight.

    Cooper sounds like so much fun.

Sorry about the lack of sleep but I'm glad you are feeling ok. Enjoy your day.

    I was at a party last night and didn't get to bed until after midnight. I was awake at 3:30. Ugh. At least I had a good book to read. I'm hoping I can nap this afternoon.

Cooper is too funny.

    I have trouble switching back and forth from my 12 hour night shifts to days off. Some switchover days, I get less sleep than usual because I'm up all day doing things - others, I sleep and sleep when I get home from work, then stay up 20 hours. Sigh ... Hope you get some sleep.
