I woke up at 1:00 a.m. with my brain a little bit too active. I am thinking of all the things I need to get done this weekend. And the irony is that losing sleep will make me less able to get it all done. Which makes me feel more restless and wide awake.
I have had intermittent insomnia for most of my life. When I was still drinking I had it terribly. A drink would fix it up though. My thinking was so wacked back then that I would tell myself that even the President of the United States slept at night! As if I had so many important things to think about that I might need to stay awake 24/7 just to think about them all! I was a housewife for God's sake!
