Well I have insomnia. It is quite regular.
I think it is a product of my crazy schedule I have through work at times.
Sometimes I work a day shift, then 24 to 36 hrs later I can be working an all night shift.
My sense of day and night and when the body and mind need to shut down get all messed up.
The times it really gets to me though are those times when I don't work for a few days.
Those days I try to follow normal sleep patterns. Yet 4 hours is generally the most I will get in one deep sleep.
I awaken and sometimes can get back to sleep, other times I just lay there and fidget.
I wonder now if I have 'learned insomnia'. It has been going on for such a long time that I worry about falling to sleep on normal nights.
On those nights or days when I've worked a long shift, I can usually fall asleep with no problems and sometimes even sleep up to 6 hours.
So here I am thinking about sleep and not getting to sleep...so I do the worst possible thing.
I boot up a laptop and browse the internet.
I should just be reading a good book and sitting quietly on the couch.
