The house is finally quiet after everyone has gone to bed. As usual, I am still awake. I wish I could say that I am enjoying the time to myself or getting some work done but the truth is insomnia has taken over. I am trapped between states. Not awake enough to actually do any of the work waiting on my computer but with too much on my mind to settle in to sleep. My parents say that I had difficulty sleeping as a baby and as a child. I remember the insomnia in high school and college. I feel like I have tried everything - white noise, lavender, melatonin, warm milk, chamomile tea. Nothing really does the trick. I fear that Elizabeth has inherited my sleeplessness as she often comes in our room in the earliest hours of the morning complaining that she is having trouble sleeping.
