It is 4:30am in the morning, and instead of sleeping peacefully in bed, I'm up and awake.  I am really tired, but for some reason, I cannot sleep.  My skin feels itchy, and about 10 minutes ago, I gave up watching the clock (I've been up since 3:30am), and came in here in hopes that browsing the internet would make me tired.  They say ("they" meaning the author(s) of one of my books) that the best thing to do for insomnia is to get up and read or do something to relax yourself like take a bath or drink a cup of hot decaf tea.  I don't want to wake Landon up by doing those things right now, so am in the 2nd bedroom with the door closed trying to get tired by browsing.  My book also says that it is worse to watch the clock, getting increasingly more stressed out by the amount of sleep you are losing.  I have quite a lot of reading to do today, and it is going to be pretty hard to read if I've only had 4 hours of sleep, but what am I to do?  Okay, my eyes are starting to feel a little sleepy, so I'll go try this one more time.  If I still can't sleep, I'm going to have to turn on a lamp and read until sleep overcomes me.  There is something wrong about insomnia--it should not be a condition that exists for us poor, hard-working humans!

Karli girl,
Some of the worst nights I have had have been from insomnia!! I hate it!! I do just what "they" say you are not suppose to do and that is keep trying to fight it and looking at the clock. Sometimes I have got up though, when you kids were younger, and drank some tea or warm Olvatine. I hope "this to shall pass" soon for you! Love you, MOM
