Sorry, MS.

And I've quit the club.  Sleeping like a baby lately.

Don't worry, I'll likely rejoin at a later date.

I basically sleep from 2 or 3 a.m. to 9 or 10.

Unfortunately I only sleep well if I drink something.  I don’t have to be drunk and I dream just fine, just sleep terrible on nothing or nothing those last hours before bed (like last night).  I dislike being drunk and avoid that almost completely, but a little sure helps.

Between the pandemic, and my wife working the night shift, my normal circadian rhythm is completely messed up. I’ve got to figure out a way to get a normal nights sleep. I was taking melatonin nightly for a while. But I got out of the habit. I might have a cocktail or two before bedtime. That seems to help. The problem is, the minute I lay down, I’m wide awake.

I used to suffer from insomnia and take various pills prescribed by my family doctor. Looking back, the meds he prescribed were overkill. It wasn't until I went to a neurologist that I found something that worked for me and didn't leave me comatose.

I don't know if we're talking about the same thing, but I have an adverse reaction to common sedatives. Even a tiny amount of codeine or tramadol in a pain-relief medication prevents me having good sleep. I lie in bed, nice and cosy, but don't drift off into dreamland.

I've been getting some decent sleep lately do to me finding my diffuser.  Every night I've got at least lavender, peppermint, and a citrus going.

I am going to officially kill my wife now. She woke me up every 5 to 10 minutes all night. The snoring, the moaning, the rolling around, fluffing pillows, turning on lights for a cigarette, shutting doors loudly, myoclonic jerking, poking me, the scooting over to the middle of the bed. I don’t have a guest bedroom available at the moment, and I hate sleeping on the couch with the dog. But lying there night after night, being tormented, it’s just absolutely driving me fucking crazy.

After hearing all that Toe, I'm so glad I just have a cat who stays in his own corner of the bed.

OK, the girl kitty is an early riser. Sometimes she'll hop up on the bed, get right in my face and start to purr loudly.  Any time between 3 and 4 AM. 

Well trained and been made compliant....by our two cats.

The only way to the kitchen is through the living room.  Everyone in my house loves to get up in the night and have a sip of water, a sip of bourbon, a cigarette, or piss in the half bath... why?  I don’t know.  The dog snores, but I can put up with her...

It’s been many days since I also got a good night’s sleep, but I have no one to blame.  I’ve been feeling so strange I even considered but finally rejected the possibility that little bug going around caught up to me.

I've re-upped my membership.   In bed at 11pm last night.  Awake at 3:30am.  And that was it.   Resisted the urge to login.  Tried my best to get back to sleep, with no luck.

I don’t have a crazy fear of Covid-19, but it does keep me awake some nights.  My dreams of late are either dystopian, apocalyptic, or some court case or card game that I’m trapped inside.  Maybe a piece of evidence that has a ten part foundation for admissibility and I can only remember 8 steps before I get tripped up in court and have to start over.  My head hurts some days when I wake up, because I have been going through this mental exercise all night.

I’m awake at odd hours, but I really don’t care. Tomorrow is Saturday, I don’t have a goddamn thing I have to do. I am caught up on all my cases. Just a few clients sending text messages. But I really have nothing to keep me awake. Wife is at work, the bed is empty. The kids are asleep. So is the dog. So I don’t mind being awake, because there’s absolutely no one here to fuck with me, or any problems to keep me awake.
