I get insomnia a lot. I was doing fine, I was tired by ten at night and I'd be up at 8 or 9 in the morning. All of sudden it's back. I didn't fall asleep until six this morning, so I'll be awake all night again tonight. I try to stay awake all day so I can go to bed at 10 or so, but it doesn't work. As soon as I lay down, I am wide awake so I am awake for another night. I feel exhuasted but as soon as I try to sleep my heart starts beating too fast. So I read, I watch tv with all the lights off, I go for a walk, I drink warm milk... none of it works. I'm up for another night, so I try to stay awake all day again, but then eventually just fall asleep.
It's going to be like this for another week. It's usually a two week cycle and then I go back to normal. I hate this because I get so bored. I never see anyone and I got laid off from my job, there are no job openings at the moment. None of my friends live around here, so I spend all my time completely alone. Well I have my cats, but it's not enough.
I walk the town trails twice a day if the weather is okay but that doesn't work. I have sleeping pills but when I take them I fall asleep but then wake up through out the night. It doesn't matter what I do. If I am completely bored out of my mind, I won't sleep.
