I Should Sleep...but I'm Restless...

I can't though, I think I've had only 28 hours of rest over 7 days....eergh. Can your health truly suffer if you just can't calm enough for real sleep? I'm anxious and alone, I worry that using alcohol and coffee to calm and wake for a week has taken its toll.

I feel a little better today :)

OK, tonight I'll just go to bed after a shower and lay silent and close eyed. Thanks, K. x

It definitely takes a toll, at least on me. When I can't sleep I lay in bed and don't let myself open my eyes. Even if it takes hours to finally sleep, it does get acheived.
