No Rest for the Weary

October 1, 2008

 

I slept two hours last night and I don’t feel like doing anything. I have some important subjects that I want to write about but I feel so foggy. Being tired all the time has been a drag. They say that a person fatigued is just as bad as a drunk driver, but what about the other areas of your life. I know that when I’m tired I over react easily, have trouble concentrating or retaining info, my grammar and math skills go out the window, I feel depressed or act goofy, in other words it’s not a pretty site.

For so long working midnights and having roommates was the blame for my 10-20 hours of sleep/week. When I did not have a roommate I did fall asleep and stay asleep easier, but I was also taking sleeping pills. Now that I don’t work outside of the home I sleep everyday but I still experience bouts of restlessness. Last night stress was the blame. I have been feeling emotionally off since Sunday, I subconsciously got my feelings hurt, which made me more sensitive to stress andinnocent comments. Now I have a lot of stuff that I need to do but no energy or brain power to do it.  I hope I fair better than this cutie pie.

 

Does anyone else struggle with sleep deprivation?

    Seriously, one of my favorite things to do is sleep! However, I haven’t had a good night’s sleep in two years…not cause of stress or anything but because of my baby who is now two. Anyway, I feel tired ALL of the time and my brain is fuzzy and I can’t remember what I went to the kitchen for, or who I was going to call. Now, even when I can sleep I can’t seem to fall asleep or stay asleep. sleep…i miss it so much.
