Trouble Sleeping

“It’s late and I’m feeling so tired. Having trouble sleeping. This constant compromise between thinking and breathing. Could it be I’m suffering because I’ll never give in?”

-Corinne Bailey Rae

You may have guessed that I’m currently having trouble sleeping. Well, it’s probably pretty obvious considering it is far past one o’clock in the morning. I have a lot on my mind right now. It seems that everything that I don’t consider in detail during the day likes to pounce on me when I get into my nice warm bed. I wouldn’t mind but a lot of it is just circular stuff that I have considered before but it just keeps coming back to haunt me.

There are things that have no answer and things that have too many answers, but mostly they are just worries and anxieties that I put off thinking about. As with most of my anxieties, they are about other people or are things that I don’t like to discuss with just anyone.

Sometimes just writing that I have them seems to help… which is the point of this short blog post. So, I’m sorry to have troubled you if I have troubled you, but in about five minutes I am going back to bed.

First, though…

Does anybody have any tips to get me over this trouble sleeping? I think it might be that I’m just not relaxed but nothing I do seems to help relax me. And if you have no tips, then I’d appreciate it if you just knocked me unconscious.

I mean, is a bit of sleep too much to ask?
