I suffer occasional insomnia
Well, not occasional; I suffer with poor sleep more often than not. Especially when I have things on my mind.
I was always one to stay up late, even though I’m well aware of the necessity of a decent night’s sleep. In my current occupation, this can be a bonus, but after two decades, the joke is wearing a little thin.
The usual pattern is this;
- Full day’s work
- Home to cook dinner
- Laptop out; more work
- Bed for 22:00
- Asleep between 0:00 and 01:50
- Awake at 05:30
- Alarm at 06:00
It differs slightly if I have the cubs but not by much.
I’ve tried most things but refuse to be medicated – it’s just not my style…
