I know you keep trying to be friends with me, but it’s just not going to work out. You see, I’m tired. Even though you try to trick me into thinking that waking up at 2:30 am every day is the ‘cool thing to do’, I know it’s not. Insomnia, it’s dark out, that means I should be asleep, but you never seem to care about that, it’s always ‘insomnia, insomnia, insomnia’. Selfish. How about we try to make a deal – you let me sleep for just one solid night each week, and in return I will not get so frustrated when you creep into my sleep-world at an unGodly hour of the morning on the other six nights of the week.
How wonderful it would be to have a good night sleep! I hate doing the Navy Seal roll through the sleeping animals on my bed in order to find my phone while praying that it will say something like 6:30 am, only to find time and time again that it says 2:30am. Walter and Lollers are snoring away – phew. My strategic roll through the blankets didn’t wake them up – that’s good. So I’m going try to say farewell to you for the night.
Please stop trying to be my friend,
Natalie (a.k.a. exhausted)

You too? Mine seems to be 3:08 am, without fail, every single day of the week.

insomnia is a thief!
it robs us of being able to cope and practice mindfulness the following day because we are too exhausted to find the key to unlock our box that holds our ” coping skills.
I was told years ago to get up out of bed when that intruder comes.
that was from a dr. who dealt with trauma patients.
then go back to bed when you are getting sleepy again.
just another option
take a bath with Epson salts
i find it helps relax me 💛
I will pray for you.
