One of the things I’ve learned over the last few years is that restful sleep is so crucial to my mental health. If I don’t have a good night’s sleep I am extremely vulnerable to my emotions, especially where my depression is concerned.
So it’s incredibly frustrating that my sleep has been so disrupted lately. Over the last two weeks, I probably have been waking up between 3-7 times per night. Sometimes I’m only awake for a minute or two at a time; other times I wake up, realize that I could probably go pee, and have to get out of bed and go to the bathroom; still other times I wake up at 5am and am still awake at 6:30am (Yes, that would be tonight) after already waking up at 2am.
Literally all I want to do is have a restful night of sleep but, so far, it keeps eluding me.
Okay… rant over.
