Sleepless night!

didnt sleep good at all last night. i even went to bed at a reasonable hour. i went to bed around 11:30. i didnt read, i decided to try to go right to sleep. no such luck though. i tossed, i turned, i lay there wide awake for ages. eventually i did fall asleep for a couple hours but I woke again at 5 AM. got up, since I couldnt get back to sleep. mom got up at six. she had a bad night, her COPD was acting up. she had to get up and take her inhalers. she’s a little better now. we sat together in the kitchen and had a cup of tea together. she has to go grocery shopping this morning. my sister will take her. i heard yesterday that my partner jess has the chicken pox. her long time friend told me. apparently jess’s adoptive mom told her. so today i need to go get her a get well card. she’s in isolation. as you know she’s in residential, in a residential psych facility. anyway she’s in isolation for the next 10 days. i bet thats no fun at all. no visitors and no one to talk to for 10 days, only the staff in the facility. i was telling my mom this morning that i need to see about getting a before and after picture for next week for the awards ceremony. they want before and after pics. i have a before one or i should have, in my phone. one that was taken when i was 2 stone heavier. i will take an after pic this week I’ll have mom take one for me. hopefully i can get a good one. other than all that not much planned for today. just having a quiet day at my parents. nothing much will be happening today. i can just relax and take it easy.

  1. Insomnia is a funny thing. Noting is more natural than sleep, but our brains just won’t switch off! Have you looked at mindfulness or meditation? I have found self-hypnosis very successful too.

    It sounds like you have a lot of worries. Maybe try writing all of your worries in a notebook about half an hour before bed. That way when you go to bed you will know that all of your worries will be right where you left them. And if more worries come into your head as you lie there, write them down and deal with them in the morning rather than trying to solve them there and then.
