Now I lay me down not to sleep
I utterly failed my attempt to sleep tonight. I was a bit keyed up on my way to bed because I had just purchased my tickets to fly down to see impykins in a couple of weeks, so I'm excited and nervous and all. But then my brain started thinking about other things too, like work. And the more I tried to push thoughts out of my head to sleep the more thoughts flooded in, until I was practically twitching from mental overload of too many thoughts racing around at the same time. I hate that feeling, it drives me nuts. If it goes on for too long I start feeling violent because it is like having a lot of discordant noise in my brain.

So I gave up and came into work at 04:30. I'm not normally in until 10:00, so I plan to try to get out of here early today. But still, I expect that in a few hours my body will realize I never actually slept a wink and it will become unhappy with me. I"m still feeling kind of scrambled - I am tired so trying to focus on a task is annoying.

Yeah, this is how I wanted to start the week.

I am: grumpy grumpy

I suffer from the same problem ... One of my friends [probably soundly] recommended I resume daily exercise, so I'm sufficiently tired at the end of the day. Another solution I'm planning trying is the 'glass of red wine' in the evenings.
