Awoke late morning
Feeling refreshed and inspired
How long did I sleep?
I don’t usually sleep well. Let me clarify, I can fall asleep easily and anywhere, and have. If I sit still for any length of time, I nod off. Getting to sleep isn’t my problem, staying asleep is – sleep-maintaining insomnia.
During a typical night, I wake up at least four times, if not more, and I can’t seem to sleep past 4:30 a.m. If I do make it to 6, I considered it sleeping in – early morning awakening.
On my worst nights, I have actually wished that I’d get very sick or injured just so I could be medically sedated to finally sleep a straight eight hours. Sleep deprivation makes you imagine really weird things.
I envy Rip Van Winkle and his ability to sleep soundly through his alarm, or if his kids aren’t home, or his spouse is working late, or he’s worried about finances, or, or… everything.
