Come on Sandman, Don’t fail me now!

Needing Some Caffiene.

Who Slept?


Wide awake, in the middle of the night, in the early morning. Again.

I have had an insomnia issue related to the illnesses I have. Having chronic pain being a huge part of my life does not bode well for sleep either. So I am never sure which it is, or is it a combo of the two causing me to not sleep. I get a tease every now and then and sleep for several days even weeks in a row, albeit only 4 -6 hours per night but so much better than 0-2 hours If I am lucky.

I am tired all the time, part of this is due to the two illnesses I have. But not sleeping leaves me feeling irritable, frustrated, and even angry. Why on some nights is sleep not elusive at all?  Other nights, most often, sleep eludes me for most of the night if not all.

I need to have a consistent sleep pattern. Why does the Sandman seem to skip me in  his rounds? There is no answer, may never be one.

Is it just enough that I recognize that this is who I am?  Is it enough that I know part of my weight problem is coming from lack of sleep?
