Insomnia Musings

Insomnia-such a terrible word. I hate it when I can't sleep. I try everything to get myself to sleep. Eventually I start talking to myself in my head. That's when you know it's really bad...
close your eyes and lie very still
relax all your muscles
change positions
get a drink of water
flip the pillow.....ahhhh, that's nice!
change positions again
elbow Sam while pretending to sleep because his snoring is clearly the reason i am awake
stop thinking...about to-do lists. that's why you have 'em in the first place!
stop telling yourself to stop thinking. doesn't help.
great, now I'm totally awake again....change positions, flip the pillow, relax
what's on my agenda tomorrow?
NO! stop it! i'm seriously annoyed!
tomorrow is thursday. best day of the week....grey's, the office, private practice
What is my "McName"? darn those writers for keeping me awake at night!
ok, now i'm just gettin' crazy!
change positions and flip pillow ten more times and...
did i just do my cardio workout for tomorrow?
1 glass of red wine. relaxed. finally. goodnight.
