Insomnia Rocks

I wonder how many times I've sat down to write after either being:

a: inebriated

or

b: fatigued beyond belief from the insomnia that I refuse to do anything about. (I mean, doing something about it would require me to visit a doctor and that? Hahahahaha!! Only if I'm bleeding out of my ears, and that might be easily remedied by extra thick Q-tips, right? Doctors and I don't get along. They think they know all the answers and I happen to strongly disagree. Also, anyone who asks me if I'd mind them checking out my butt when I'm 8 months pregnant and is confused as to why I'd balk at that has something wrong with their brain.)

Did I just say "checking out my butt" on my blog? I do believe I did. I've been up since 1:30. This is as good as it's going to get.

Middle of the night shows are great. Really old re-runs of King of the Hill (like, 1997! Dude. I was freshly married in 97...) and Happy Days. Awesome. We have hundreds of channels including HBO on Demand and the best I can find at 2 am is Happy Days. At least it featured Fonzi. He was such a cutie. Eeeeeeeaaaayyyyyyyy....

It's all cool though, cuz I also managed to watch half of 50 First Dates. Yep. Nothing like watching one of the saddest romantic comedies with your husband and kids all snoring around you. (Yes. The entire family was in our room last night. This is pretty much par for the course. I'll miss it someday, right?)

ANYway. Slight break in typing and it's now... 6:00 am! Major benefit of being awake was having coffee with Patrick for half an hour before he heads off to work. 30 minutes and no interruptions!

Insomnia finally scores!

Insomnia is awful. I'm so sorry. I think I would sleep beautifully if I could sleep every night from 9-3:30 or 4. Sadly, that doesn't work so well.

Hope it's better tonight.

At least you can still see the bright side of things! :)

I so get it. Insomnia sucks big time. have you ever tried melatonin? If I can remember to take it (about an hour before I want to go to bed) it sometimes helps. Except I almost never remember to take it. And then I'm up most of the night. And also, I agree, late night tv sucks.

Oh, insomnia is not fun. I had it when I had severe anxiety...and I did go to the doctor and I was a new person.

a) If you do go to the doctor, take your kids and the dr. will definitely give you drugs. b) alcohol actually makes you lose sleep in the long run. c) you might be one of those people that doesn't need a lot of sleep but have been programmed all your life to thinking you must have 8 hours every night, that it bugs you if you don't. d) a family bed is simply "experiencing other cultures." we do it all the time. Didn't Eskimos in igloos do that?

When I have insomnia, I always think the least HBO could do is have on some soft core p0rn. Isn't that what the middle of the night is for? You should at least be able to get re-runs of Blind Date.

Debbie said...

Ugh, I'm sorry. I've never had to deal with insomnia on a major level. I hope it gets better for you.

and he ate a live snake...starting with the head..

Insomnia sucks. I've had it since I was a little kid. I remember crying because I was so tired and just couldn't sleep.

I avoid tv/computer as much as possible when I'm trying to sleep, though, because the light keeps me awake. I try to read on dim lighting.

Unless I'm having one of those sleepless nights where you're just SLIGHTLY asleep so you are half convinced that you're actually at work/on the bus/having a conversation with a friend and you can't get to sleep because you can't convince yourself that you aren't. Then I use the computer to wake myself up.

Or is that just me?

well at least you are productive when you have it I just lay in bed wishing myself back to sleep.

Insomnia sucks! I just want to sleep!

Stacia said...

I would cry if I couldn't sleep. And probably go crazy. Wishing you some restful rest soon!

We should stop thinking about insomnia. I know it's hard but you have to realize that the more energy you give to a problem, the more it grows. Trust me....
