Lying in bed tonight I reached an undesirable conclusion: for the first time in my life, I don't look forward to going to bed. My assumption now is not that I will fall asleep, but that I will lie awake in bed, watching the hours tick away until morning.

It's 2:30 right now, and if precedent serves as an indication of what tonight will bring, I'll be awake until dawn.

It's really awful when you're exhausted but can't sleep.

I'm sorry, Buddy.

Just saw this ... I suffered with insomnia for a rather lengthy period of time. Turned out I was low on iron, and my thyroid was slightly low as well. I don't know if this would be helpful to you, but thought I'd mention it, just in case it is.

Hope you don't mind this stranger jumping in to your blog twice in one day.
