ZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzz (I wish)

Just popping in to apologize for not posting yesterday and not “really” posting today.  I’ve dealt with insomnia off and on (but usually on) since Vincenzo was born, and it’s really acting up lately.  Nothing slaps the funny out of you like passing a looooooooooooong 8 hours in bed awake in the dark, hearing every noise in the house, frustrated because your body just doesn’t know how to fall sleep, and “waking up” so exhausted that all you can think about doing all day is going to sleep.  Even so, I dread bedtime because I know it’s going to be another tortuous stretch of boredom, frustration, and exhaustion until I can wake up and do it all over again.

Anyway, hopefully I can post something more cheery this afternoon.

  1. Ooh- ouch I’m really sorry. I had/have(?) similar issues- insomnia or at a minimum sleeping so lightly that I felt exhaused when I woke up for years. I was getting so zombie like at work and feeling just plain crazy half the time, that I went to see a cognitive specialist. He thinks that being essentially sleepless during the last part of my pregnancy, and then for months after James arrived, screwed up my melatonin production and had me purchase a blue light to get me producing melatonin during the right times- it has helped. I know being preggers adds a layer of complexity, but I thought that I’d share since sleep has been a struggle for me ever since James was born and before.
