The Insomnia Strikes Back

I’m not going to lie….insomnia sucks! The last few nights, I’ve laid in bed staring at my ceiling unable to fall asleep….and on the rare occasion that I actually did fall asleep, I couldn’t stay asleep. I don’t know what is causing this, or why it is so sporadic when it does happen.

It’s the weirdest thing. I haven’t changed my eating habits, or introduced any new foods. My night-time routine is always the same. Normally I fall asleep to music, but not even that helps when insomnia strikes. I tried reading, watching re-runs of television shows on the iPad hoping and praying that something would put me to sleep. I tried completely clearing my mind, and not thinking about anything at all (which is nearly impossible for me.)

Finally, last night I was able to get a full eight hours of sleep, but that doesn’t happen very consistently. It gets really frustrating, because I have no idea what causes this, why it comes on the way it does.

Sorry for the random, rambling post….if anyone has any kind of advice for dealing with insomnia I’m open to it!



p.s. Please pray that I’m able to fall asleep tonight, and stay asleep! Thanks!
