    Sleep Calories

    I guess I keep an eye on how much I sleep like most people keep an eye on their calories. So far this week, I can say I must have got about between 6-8 hours sleep. Just for the week. That's the same as what people have for an entire night. If it carries on like...

    I was up late last night

    and got tipsy then I had to get up at 6:30am so I am trying to get through this day with only a few hours of sleep. I know its my fault but even without the alcohol I would have been up longer.

    My mind doesn't stop,

    it never allows me to rest. I will lie here, staring at the ceiling until the early hours of the morning. I can close my eyes yet pictures remain as I create film after film in my head. I can't shut down, close off, stop creating. I just want to rest.

    but some days it's pretty damn evident that it's still not enough.

    I think we've all had those days

    where we get up at a certain time because our mind is awake, even though our body is still tired. I have too many of those.

    I never sleep anymore.

    I'm always tired, but I never sleep. I don't have anything better to do with my time, but I just can't sleep. I used to have awful nightmares, but I'd choose them over staying awake hours on end.
