Light Sleeper + Nightmares = Insomnia

Sleep and nightmares are my enemies.  I’ve never been a good sleeper…any bit of noise, I wake up.  Nightmares is another story…those started a few years ago.  Every so often I get horrible nightmares and once I’m up, I won’t be able to fall asleep again.  I guess the combo of those two result in insomnia.

Last night, I went to bed around 12ish but was awaken by mom around 3ish.  She is jetlagged and is on a off time schedule.  This morning I had to get to work early so I had to wake up early.  The good thing is, I had a good day at work.  Things went quite smoothly.  The best part is I had a great nap at E’s place.  Absolutely no one disturbed me, including the sun!

Nightmares….Like I said, it’s a whole different story.  They can be so bad that I wake up crying.  When I experience a one night’s nightmare, I have to be prepared to have nightmares the next following nights.  Usually I don’t remember my nightmares, but all I know is they are scary, sad, super scary, or super sad.

Sleep is important.  I envy those that can sleep really well and those that can fall asleep within minutes.  My dad is like that, and so is my E.  I wonder what it is I can do to get to their level!

Tonight is a relaxing night.  I’m not doing much…writing my journal and watching a basketball game.  I’m missing my E too.  He’s watching the game too, but at a bar after work.  I wonder if people misses people often like me?

This is probably one of my better journal entries…quite neutral, not negative 🙂

Have a happy night and a happy deep sleep everyone.  I wish the same for myself
