Snowdrops and aconites are popping up in other people’s gardens and the surrounding countryside, there are none in my garden as of yet. They seem to get later each year.
I have decided this year to keep a sleep record. It’s one thing telling a doctor you can’t sleep but another to be able to show them. It never seems to get taken seriously. They just spout words at you about sleep hygiene and coping mechanisms etc.
So far, for the month of January, I have had no more than 9 nights of relatively normal sleep. That is, getting to and staying asleep naturally (hopefully within 3 hours of going to bed), without the use of Nytol or Bailey’s! That is very good for me.
I don’t feel sleep deprived as in feeling overwhelmingly tired, but am more irritable than I used to be and the slightest thing, somedays, can have me in floods of tears. I wouldn’t mind going to one of those sleep centres to be wired up and see if anything is causing it. Mind you I either wouldn’t be able to sleep due to the wires or would fall asleep and nothing would register.
I know I am not alone and as it has been going on for many years, is now probably just how I am.
Life eh, always ready to throw you a curve ball!
