Why is it that when you REALLY need sleep, you can’t? For me, I guess it’s that I get stressed out, but still. I can lie there praying for an hour or two, “Lord, please help me sleep…” and….nothing. It usually happens on the nights when I work the next day, which means I have to get up at 4:30. It’s not because I’m stressed about going—I like my job. But even if I’m in bed by 9, my body will rarely let me sleep before 11. I’ve been awake since 3 a.m., so I finally got out of bed to do something productive.
I do not function well with less than 7 hours of sleep. Twice a week, I get about 4 to 5. And it’s aging me. Okay, that’s the end of my complaining for the day.
