Can’t sleep

It’s been a long time since I’ve been awake at midnight, unable to sleep. I blame the caffeine for the initial trouble although now i think that it’s just time. I decided to take some medication and i am waiting for it to work. to stop the non-sleep loop that is running circles in my head. i figure that if i write about what is going on then it might help to mitigate some of the damage and help in unclogging my awake brain to let the sleep juices flow.

i am crouched next to the bed typing so as to not wake Mr. A.

i hope.

why do they make keyboards so loud?!?!

my thoughts are running along what i should be doing with my time. did i remember to let such and such know something of insignificant importance. especially for twelve o’clock in the morning. should i start such and such tomorrow given how good things went today (unlikely now). am i hungry? what was that noise? is master x waking up?

i’m going to try to sleep now and if that does not work then i will come back and write some more. i have tried reading, eating and breathing so this is kind of the last thing on my list.

good luck

  1. I have potent lavender essential oil and have used that, but my family hates the smell! :(((((((( Meanies! Late night chocolate disrupts my sleep too, yet I can’t seem to stop it. Not yet, anyway….

    Hope you get some good sleep tonight!

    1. Mmmm lavender oil- I’ll add it to my list! I think it was the chocolate. We are almost out of chocolate which I am a bit scared about!! I’ll be switching off early and having a nice shower before bed. Rituals are important and I blew them off last night.

  2. I have trouble sleeping too…the mind traffic often keeps me awake for hours. Also electrical buzzing… Visualisation can be helpful. Definitely no caffeine after 6pm and try not to use computers or mobile phones a couple of hours before you go to bed. See if it helps. X

    1. Thanks for the tips. I switch off after my shower at night and the only caffeine was at lunchtime…. oh no, then there was all that chocolate. must have been the chocolate. The noisy fan was very annoying last night! Thanks for the advice!

      1. “Theobromine, caffeine’s chemical cousin, occurs at a greater concentration, about 250 milligrams in a 50 gram bar of dark chocolate. Like caffeine, theobromine is a central nervous system stimulant, though it is milder in its effects.”
        Off internet…
        I had to stop eating chocolate at night because it triggered panic attacks. *sobs*
