Can't Sleep? Me Neither

Millions of people can't sleep so we aren't alone, but we still don't like it. It's 2:12, 3AM, 4 and after.....
What do I do?
I lay there and feel: cozy and warm, slight nausea
I crave: a pickle, Bubbies sauerkraut, Mexican food, seltzer water
I hear: a quiet house, wind rustling through the leaves, as it nears 4AM there is a car or 2 driving past
I see: darkness, I have my eyes shut
I want: 10 more years without pain, God's will, to cry (but I can't)
I think: about writing this post and the Zometa treatment I have the following day

As is almost 5AM I fall asleep, and NO I did not fall asleep early the next night.

I really just want to stay home, in my leggings and sweatshirt, covered up with my blanket and read. Life is OK....'cept for one thing......

  1. Sleep is a big problem for me too. I guess I just worry too much about everything and can't shut down. And no matter how little I sleep one night and I feel so tired; I still can't sleep the following night. Hoping some day we can figure this out and get a good nights sleep and feel rested and good. Sending you best wishes for good health and sleep.

  4. Linda, When we can't sleep our minds seem to work over time...thinking..I do not sleep well. If I lived next door and saw your light on, I would probably call you. LOL. When I can't sleep , I talk to God lots of times. It seems to help me . I'll be thinking of you next time. Blessings dear friend, love,xoxo, Susie

  5. Prayers for you my friend. I can't begin to give you advice or understand what is running through your mind but I can tell you that you have many earthly angels who are lifting you up in prayers and positive energy. It is ok to lean on us, be to be honest and true about your thoughts and concerns. We are listening.... You are being heard... We care.

  7. Let us know how your day goes. You feel whatever you want to feel. Scream, yell, hit something, cry and do it all over again and then sleep.
