Some observations while having a bit of insomnia

  1. My dogs never have insomnia. And they don't care if I do. They sleep all night...and most of the day.
  2. There doesn't seem to be anything off limits in the refrigerator.
  3. I think I pee more in the middle of the night. How do I ever have uninterrupted sleep?
  4. My cats never have insomnia. They like it when I do because they know if they keep meowing I will give them milk to shut them up.
  5. There is some incredibly bad tv on at 2:00 a.m.
  6. I never realized how much I love my dvr.
  7. My husband never has insomnia. He doesn't care if I do as long as I leave the bedroom with it.
  8. The only thing really going through my brain is that I need to sleep. And it makes me not sleep thinking about all the minutes ticking away as I keep trying to convince myself to sleep.
  9. Do you even know how good a piece of meatloaf is rolled up in a tortilla? It's not. I've tried it. Please see #2.
  10. Warm milk does NOT, in fact, make a person sleepy. Well, this person anyway. My cats take it warm or cold. They aren't picky.
  11. My couch is seeing more of me than my bed. This is disturbing.
  12. After months of this non-sleeping torture I've decided I know what the cure is....apparently I need to eat more dog food.

  2. Yes, what you write is really funny - but the situation isn't. I hate insomnia! I've struggled with if for years. Have come to the point i think it is from fluoride poisoning and if i get any additional (thru unfiltered water for example) the insomnia kicks up again. But that is how my body does it. It may be something else for you.

    Hope that you have gotten some rest. Sending you hugs! You definitely are one of the people with the funny twist to things who see a glass as half full. :)

  3. I like this. I have had insomnia for many years but I get on the computer, read the Bible on-line and talk to the Lord. Then I go right back to sleep.
