Sleep eludes me these days.
Oh not completely, but I get less of it than I want.
I stay up later than I should because even though I feel tired, when I lay down I don't fall asleep.
My brain keeps whirring away.
Then I finally fall asleep and there are two possibilities:
1-I sleep fine for a few hours and pop awake around 4:30 or 5:00 and I'm done.
2-I sleep fitfully, waking about every 2 hours or so until I wake for good possibly around 6 or 6:30
I usually find myself very sleepy around 2:00 or so and sometimes get a nap which is awesome.
I sometimes find myself very sleepy as I drive to or from Boston which is not awesome.
Sleep is such a strange thing. When you are so tired, why can't you sleep?
