I'm not going gentle into that good night

Last night turned into another night of wondering. Wondering why the heck my sleep system has stopped working.

I meant well. I mean I was in bed by 10:30, before Lauralea even was. And I lay there and lay there and lay there. I dosed off for 15 minutes, then woke up again. And lay there till around 2:30 when I got up out of frustration.

Tried again around 4:30 and the sun was up and birds were all a twitter. By 5 am I remember checking the clock again, then I was gone.

What is this strange nocturnal world in which I find myself these days, or should I say nights.

An urgent email came in around 3:30 and I used the time to pray, but this is starting to make a mess of my day time life.

Discernment, where art thou.

Sleep, where art thou.

See, even my blogging ability is getting weird.


  1. You're probably too stressed and a good Vitamin-B supplement would probably do you good. Or some Essential Oils. Or St. John's Wort.

    You should have your people call my people...I've got the hook-up.

  2. See, I'm just a yokel from the prairies but to me putting something called St. John's Wart into my mouth, well that thought just took away the two hours sleep I did have.

    It's nice to have "people" in the BC pharmaceuticals industry though.

    Do you deal in medicinal cannabis, also known as marijuana or ganja?

  3. Perhaps you can no longer take coffee after midday.

  4. Or perhaps you are stressing so much about not sleeping that it's causing you to not sleep.

  5. We don't sell the Green Stuff per se, but I think three of our neighbours use it, so I could knock on doors if you were really desperate.

  6. Shhh.... not til your husband's paperwork is finished...

  7. There's something about not sleeping right now, and I'm not sure what it is, but it's affecting a great many of the people I know at the moment.

  8. Hmmmmm. I am in Saskatoon and am having the same problem, but at the other end. I wake up at 5 or 6. Doesn't matter if I go to bed at 11 or 2 a.m.! Got 4 hours sleep last night. I figured it was because I turned 45 in february and my body upgraded its inner prgramming (like going from windows 3.1 to windows ME) and it hasn't got all the bugs out yet. I can't nap, because if I nap in the day I won't get to sleep until 3 a.m.

    I do take Vit B occassionally. The wart stuff has some psych side-effects stuff I'm not interested messing with.


I'm moderating all the comments these days.
