Journal entry 8 Feb, 2013

I have trouble sleeping most nights, waking up after 2-3 hours and sometimes not able to get back to sleep for the rest of the night, or sometimes not able to fall asleep at all.  It’s been this way all my life and usually I’m adjusted to these periods and have different methods that generally work.  Every once in a while I get to the point where I just need to sleep.  What drives me over the bend though, is when my mind says I need to sleep and my body says “nuh-uh, not gonna happen”.  I close my eyes only to have them open and staring at the ceiling or the wall.  Last night was one of those nights.  I have had a series of late nights and early mornings and was looking forward to a nice sleep, waking up refreshed and alert. Don’t laugh.. it could happen!  My wish for a Disney-like sleep to be woken by twittering birds and singing forest animals did not come true.  I woke up every couple of hours.  Last night my body decided to try something new.  Every time I woke up I was sitting, on the verge of getting out of bed.  Now, I’ve never been a sleep walker so this was an unnerving  new development.  I managed to convince myself each time I did not actually need to get up and yes it was necessary to lie back down for the rest of my sleep.  Today I am tired and feel more than a little strange and I wonder about this new sleep development.  Is there such a thing as a sleep sitter?

    Great naration, but not a great story. Sleep is sooooo important, and when one doesnt get enough, well, Ronna, you know the scenario. Costco has a great product called Super Sleep that may just be worth a try for you. I know it certainly helps everyone I have ever recommended it to, so it may help you too.
    Now as far as a sleep sitter goes, there must be some truth to it. After all, unless you are dreaming that you are awake and sitting up and reminding yourself to go back on you back, then, YES there must be such a thing.
    Well done and entertaining. Keep up the writing…it looks great on you.

    I don’t like most sleep aids because they tend to stay in my body a looooong time, or don’t work at all. I’ll check out Super Sleep though, maybe it will be magic for me 🙂

      Like you, I too do NOT like sleep aids, but the Super Sleep from Costco is so nice. It does not leave that hangover feeling, but provides a comfortable sleep Hope you give them a try and enjoy the benefits.
