Lord help me! I cannot sleep! All this week, I have tossed and turned every night. Yesterday, I was so tired from not sleeping that I took two naps during the day and cancelled plans that my husband and I had to go see a jazz saxophonist last night.
And, I find myself agitated during the day and easily weepy. I don't know if it is all the drama with my family, the fact that I have too much work on my plate, or the meds I started this week. I started both LDN and Synthroid this week, so one or both of those could be doing this. If they are, I hope those problems subside soon. I cannot live like this. I lie awake running things through my head over and over again, the last song that played in Zumba, what all I need to do at work and whether I should just get up and work, the meal planning that I need to do for the upcoming week, the fact that not sleeping cannot help fertility, praying hail marys over and over again for sleep. Finally, at 3:30 this morning, I got up and made a cup of chamomile tea and read for about an hour. I still wasn't exactly sleepy, but I went back to bed and finally fell asleep.
I was supposed to join my bible study group via skype this morning at 6:45, but I had to just sleep in. What am I going to do if this keeps happening next week? I can't just sleep in and keep napping during the day, or maybe I can. But I would rather not. I would rather be a normal functioning human being.
Is there a patron saint for sleep? If so, can you please say some prayers to him or her for me?
