i can't sleep

[+]
I've had way too many sleepless nights lately. Do you go through phases like that? Every so often, I have a couple of months of insomnia. I just can't sleep. I can't help but stay up until 2:30 or 3:00 or 4:00 am even on nights before my early run at 5:30. Sometimes I can grab a quick afternoon nap (and for some reason, it's easier to fall asleep for a bit in the afternoon.) Otherwise, I'm surviving on caffeine. But I've kind of learned to embrace the lack of sleep. It gives me more thinking time. Brainstorming time. Reflection time. (Knitting time...?)

  3. I haven't been around in blogland much lately, but here I am and I hope to visit more often in the next (Summer) months! Yes, I have those "phases" of no sleep, but not often and not as bad as you describe. I kinda like the "extra hours" to write and think.

  4. I'd be dying. I need at least 6 hours and then I'm fine, but I like 7. What's up sista? No sleepy? Maybe you need to cut out caffeine for 2-3 days and you will sleep?
