Insomnia

I could not fall asleep until about 5am this morning.  I got about four hours of sleep.  Maybe it was all the caffeinated teas, or the massive dose of prednisone (again…grrrr), but I was wide awake in bed.  Perhaps it was from the excitement of the day, too.  I had a great day yesterday.  More on that tomorrow, though.

As I lay in bed, I wondered what I could be doing with the time I was awake.  I could knit.  I could pick spinning back up, or I could start tatting, which my friend Amanda got me interested in, as well as loaning me some starter supplies.  I ended up knitting for an hour.  And then I sleepy. 

I have a lot on my plate!  I am excited and motivated, despite being tired. I will tell you about my awesome day with Joan and Amanda tomorrow, or later today if I have the time.  It was a great time with great friends and it was exactly what I needed in my life at that point.

  1. I hate bouts of insomnia. I get them every once in a while. It's like my body is exhausted, but my mind is wildly spinning and can't slow down enough to fall asleep…. ack.

  2. I was pretty wiped out be the end of the day, I will say that. At least did get a good night's sleep last night. Yay!

    I get that ping pong ball mind thing going on,too, at times. For me, it's actually a symptom of ADD. A low dose of ritalin at night generally stops it.
