Have not been falling asleep on my own recently. Have had to drug myself, dosing myself with a combination of clonazepam, diphenhydramine (Benadryl), and a sleep aid herbal supplement. I chew the clonazepam and herbal supplement to get them to act more rapidly.
Find myself up until the wee hours of the morning, intermittently reading ebooks and blog posts, commenting on blog posts, responding to comments on my posts, researching any number of things that come to mind. One thing leads to another. Read something that I must then write about or research. Mind all over the place. Mind thinking. Not tired. Crap. At least taking the clonazepam knocks me out. Wait too long until I take it. Well, maybe one am isn’t that bad. At least I still get a decent night’s sleep. But this morning I dragged. Never been much of a morning person.
My husband, on the other hand, is the Energizer Bunny in the morning. So annoying. I drive him nuts at night, reading in bed beside him as he tosses and turns. He drives me nuts in the morning as he rattles off his ideas and the projects he wants to complete for the day. It’s as if I have a hangover. Shut up. Be quiet. Stop talking so much and so fast. I’m not awake yet.
