Night #BlogFlash2012 Day 21

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.

  1. I guess I get insomnia in that it takes me forever to fall asleep even when I'm tired. hehe I'm just too lazy to get up and 'do' anything if I can't sleep so I just lay there.

  2. I've only suffered occasional bouts of insomnia and know how frustrating it can be. I do sympathise with you, Angela, and hope you can find a way to reverse the circle. Thanks for sharing something so personal.

  3. I'm so sorry to hear that, Angela. Thank you so much for sharing it with us. I do hope it's a pattern that Elizabeth is able to break, but I know that is much much easier said than done.

  4. I have the same problem. What is it with us creatives? Do we think too much? :)


I love hearing from you! Please share your thoughts with me :-)
