Insomnia

I have had insomnia for a few weeks now - the bad kind. This is not your typical, "I can't sleep" kind of problem most adults face at least every few months; this is the kind where you feel completely rundown the whole day long and when you finally lie down to sleep, you either toss and turn or you sleep for a few minutes and are up the rest of the night.

I have often gone through this in my adult life. In fact, it has gotten to where I basically expect it every few months or so, but of the more "sleep disrupted" variety I mentioned above. I find it difficult to sleep for a week or two, toss and turn most of the night, and generally can't function well while I am up. But this is the real kind: where you finally fall asleep around midnight, then wake up around 12:30am and are up until you finally fall asleep around midnight the next night.

I can't eat, I can't think, I don't feel like doing anything... it's just awful. Worst of all, the convenience store has nothing for sleep and the drugstore is already closed (because it's Wednesday and the entire town rolls-up at noon). So I am up and obviously working, I just don't know how good any of this is going to be once I finish it. I literally have to force myself to wash some of these dishes and do some other chores which I have put off doing since the weekend - it's starting to offend me!

But I just wanted to let you know why posts have been coming through at odd hours and all of that.
