I feel like this;
Fun Fact? I had really bad insomnia for about a year. I couldn’t sleep more then about 2 hours a night, and it was horrendous. Sometimes I would take 4 gravol a night and still not sleep. I think the worst part was my anxiety around sleeping became a contributing factor as to why I couldn’t sleep.
Now I am haven’t had insomnia for about a year, however sleep is still challenging for me. I don’t get tired. Sure, I’m tired…or my body may be exhausted, but the second I lay in bed I am wide awake.
Somehow, I usually fall asleep. Now with Chris gone, my body just seems to not want to go to sleep until about 1am. And I wake up at 6:09, I’m exhausted.
I do everything right; I follow all the sleep rules! I don’t use my bed for things other then sleeping (i.e watch TV, use computer), I don’t have a clock in my room, and I don’t eat past 7:30. Yesterday I had a crazy busy day, and my body was exhausted….how do I exhaust my mind?
Well today is starting with loads of coffee, I need to feel human again. And then I am off to my 8th to LAST day of work! It is exciting, but really sad. I sat down with a coworker yesterday going over my caseload so she can take it over. I almost cried. I really love my job, and I hope that you all love yours, life is way too short to stay at a job you hate.
Tips for sleeping? Do you love your job?
P.S. Thank you all for your notes on packing! Quick question….do you put your clothes in boxes? I am pretty sure I have always just thrown them in the back of my car in piles.
