Here it is, almost 4:00 am and I haven’t been to sleep yet.
Oh, I’m exhausted…that’s for sure.
But, every time I try to lie down, my eyes pop open and I can’t sleep.
This has happened the past three nights!
I’ve been through this before…back in college when I was insane enough to take 8 classes per semester for 3 semesters.
Yeah, I know….crazy, but even though I was bogged down, I still maintained my 4.0 GPA.
I went to see the doctor, who diagnosed me with insomnia and put me on Ambien.
But, all it did was make me sleep walk…
…and I was unaware until the next morning when I’d find a replicas of Stonehenge on the bathroom floor, constructed from shampoo bottles, lotion bottles, and bars of unopened soap.
Yeah, Stonehenge, so…nooooooo more Ambien for me!
Back to sleepless nights.
Pretty soon, I’ll start getting delirious, which will be funny at first.
Because who knows what will come out of my mouth.
After the delirious stage, I’ll enter the pissed off and moody stage:
Until I finally collapse and sleep for 1-2 hours…usually on day 4
And then the cycle starts all over again.
Trust me, I’ve tried all sorts of remedies.
But, nothing works.
So, when you are nice and cozy, slipping off to la-la land without any problem…
Don’t worry about me…I’ll just be losing my freaking mind!
