I think it is that hormonal time of life, but insomnia seems to be assaulting my friends. Me too.
I wake up sometime between 2:00 and 4:00 a.m. and–boing!–I’m wide awake!
My girlfriend Lisa awes me with her discipline. She just trains herself to stay in bed and stay relaxed, rest assured that she is getting rest if not sleep.
My friend Val starts praying through her lists. She prays for her relatives, her co-workers, her friends at church, her neighbors until she drifts back into never-never land. I don’t think she has ever gotten to the place where she prays through the phone book!
Another friend never has two bad nights in a row. After one sleepless night, she takes Benadryl. I guess you’d call that the Better Living Through Chemistry approach.
Since I’ve been walking with Leslie I have fewer middle-of-the-night rendezvouses. (I had to look up how to make a plural of rendezvous; pronounce it vooz. I’m not convinced this is correct. *See comments*)
Do you have times you can’t sleep?
What’s your scoop on snoozing through the night?
