The title pretty much says it all.
I’ve had insomnia all my life, but it comes and goes in several-month-long cycles. The longer cycles usually show up during winter. This is a particularly bad cycle. I think I’ve slept MAYBE 8 hours in 3 days.
Part of it is the nightmares. I’m still having them. The ones where I can’t help animals who are in pain, animals who are dying, animals who are trapped where I can’t get them out. I think I’m “coping” with them by not sleeping, therefore no possibility of having them in the first place.
Paging Dr. Freud…
Gawd, I need sleep.
