Dear Insomnia,

10.29.2010

You are making my life really difficult. Every night I crawl in bed, ready to go to sleep, with my pajamas on and my make up off. My contacts are out, my teeth are brushed, my face is washed. Scriptures read, prayers said. It is 12:07 am. Bedtime.

I close my eyes.

I open them, still haven't fallen asleep, and look up to check the time(it is projected on my ceiling thanks to my nifty clock). 12:41 am. Not okay.

I open them, still haven't fallen asleep, and look up to check the time(it is projected on my ceiling thanks to my nifty clock). 1:18 am. Not okay.

I think about closing my eyes, nope. Not gonna work. I grab my computer to watch some ridiculous tv show on the internet. 90210, Hellcats, One Tree Hill, Glee, DCC Making the Team...

One episode.
Two episodes.

3:06 am. Bedtime? Lets try again.

I close my eyes.

I hear my alarm go off, 8:00 am already? Okay. Fine. Next day. No nap. School, work, homework. Get home, crawl into bed with my pajamas on and my make up off. My contacts are out, my teeth are brushed, my face is washed. Scriptures read, prayers said. It is 12:07 am. Bedtime.

Repeat insomnia. No thank you. but here you come again. After this weekend, I am fixing that problem.

Love,
Deidre
