Lack of Sleep

My insomnia has multiple causes, but lately it seems to have gotten worse. The causes in no particular order are:

  • taking care of kiddo
  • hubby driving me nuts
  • writing
  • blogging
  • twitter
  • Facebook
  • reading
  • blog surfing
  • TV shows I’m addicted to
  • family (Mom, Sis, in-laws, nieces, etc.)

I’m sure there’s more but I’m too tired to think of them right now. I’ve been napping for about a week now. Not getting more than an hour or two of sleep at a time. My mind is screaming for a break.

I go to bed only to remember that I didn’t take care of something on my list. I try to forget it, but can’t.

I guess I shouldn’t complain. It could be worse. I could have nothing to do with my time but sleep. At this point, though, that sounds like paradise.

What keeps you awake at night?

  1. My mind keeps me awake at night. It doesn’t know when to shut down and I’ll spend half the night thinking about upcoming events, problems I’m having, what-if’s, and other things I can’t even begin to remember. I tried everything to get it to quiet down from forced relaxation, meditation, etc. I sleep better at night now, but mostly because I’ve finally realized I can’t control everything. Which sucks cause I hate not knowing how things are going to turn out.

    Tammy, you have my sympathies. I’d recommend lavender baby lotion from Johnson & Johnson. It helps me a little bit.

  2. I am stuck on the nieces as a reason for your insomnia!! but of course you can’t be talking about me???

  3. Danica, I think it’s common for my age/occupation, but it’s really annoying. I’ll try the lotion, thanks. ❤

    Faith, yes, you and Tiff keep me up nights. I worry about you going off to college and her dating. I normally calm down while cleaning my gun. (feel free to give all the guys that bug you this link so they will know how protective I am 😉
