Insomniac lounge, almost midnight and I’m still wide awake

Well, so much for me going to bed. Its 11:50 now, and I am wide awake, I just can’t go to sleep. It’s a bloody nightmare. I thought I’d have no trouble sleeping tonight, after almost falling asleep a few times during today. But nope. As soon as my head hit the pillow my mind began to race. I got up again and decided to take a hot shower, to see if that might help, but nope. It hasn’t done anything. So I’ve made a mug of tea, and I’m going to read for a bit, and hope I can fall asleep eventually. I suppose it’s not the end of the world if I don’t, as I don’t really have a lot going on tomorrow. But I do have work in the afternoon, so I need to be alert for that. Sometimes I hate how my brain functions. And I hate insomnia.
