I am awake (insomnia)

I may have less on my physical plate lately - but more on my mental one, and it is keeping me awake.

I have never had trouble sleeping before.  I was a world class, Olympic gold medal sleeper.  I could sleep anywhere, anyway, and most of the day if I got the chance - but not the past couple of weeks. I am not getting 8 hrs on any night, and some nights I am up at 3 or 4 in the morning and unable to go back to sleep.  I am tired a lot, and I am really not liking it.

I started seeing a councilor and I am working to make realistic goals to get through some of my problems, but it’s hard, and being tired isn’t helping at all.

I had hoped that eating better and exercising more would overcome it, but my anxiety is through the roof.  I think I am going to have to start taking sleeping pills for awhile to keep on a healthy sleep cycle.

Oh well, think i might be a bit tired now (of course there is less than an hour before I have to wake up, sigh) so I am gonna try catch an early morning nap.
