So, so tired

I've been getting really tired and going to bed early because I just can't stay vertical with my eyes open any longer.

I've had some big days with things that had to be done, and there's stuff on the horizon that I'm half really excited about and half concerned that my organisational ability isn't up to scratch.

Then there's the on-going paying work with all the little bits and pieces that I have to get done just when I think I've finished a job.

The problem is I'm waking for an hour or so (on one occasion nearly 3 hours) just after midnight. My brain just switches on and races around all the things I have to do, decide or organise. Then I can't get back to sleep. There's nothing like tossing and turning for an hour or so in the middle of the night when you're so tired you can't force yourself up to actually do anything else.

So I'm not waking feeling rested in the mornings. This means I struggle through another day, get to the end of it feeling so tired that I need to go to bed early... and the cycle continues.

I'm trying the excercise in the morning option and it hasn't made any difference. I might try the exercise before bed option, but I'm a bit worried it might actually wake me up.

How much use am I for anything just now?

... Approximately None.

That sucks. See a doctor if it keeps happening, ok? Sleep is precious.

You poor thing. That is no good.

Perhaps take to drinking a few bottles of wine or spirits before you go to bed? That should help with your sleeping.

(joking!!)

Oh my dear. I am sorry I didn't comment when I first read this post. It's just that you made me so tired that I went to bed instead.

I don't know what Crazy Sister is saying - 'see a doctor'. What are they gonna say? Yeah, life's tiring, it sux, try a vitamin, get some rest. Pah.
