For the last few years, I've had my share of difficulty getting a restful night's sleep. Sometimes I can't seem to fall asleep, other times I can't seem to remain asleep once I get there. Thankfully, such difficulties don't exist every single day, but seem to happen in sporadic episodes.
Currently I am experiencing another one of those episodes, although this time around the inability to go to sleep lasts until nearly four in the morning. That means, of course, that I am then sleeping much of the morning to get the six to seven hours of sleep my body requires. And because I sleep so long into the day time, I then am not able to go to sleep again until 4 A.M. or so.
The only way to put a stop to this nonsense is to set an alarm for a reasonable wake-up time. I realize I'll be groggy much of the day, but hopefully I will then be able to go to sleep at a more respectable hour and not waste daylight hours being in bed. Tomorrow is the day, so if I seem a little less than alert tomorrow, you'll know why.
