Fluther. I think I'm going insane. I haven't really slept at all this week. Any advice?
In the past week.. I’ve slept at night maybe 3 times? But each time, it was only for about 4 hours. Those 4 hours were filled with nightmares, so it wasn’t very useful sleep.
I’ve taken 3 hour naps twice with the youngling.. but that’s it.
I know I can’t sleep because I’m stressed, and a bit panicky about some things. I’d rather not go into that.
I’m only assuming that until I get over the stress, I’m stuck in a cycle of not sleeping. This is where you guys come in..
I’m assuming I’m not hopeless.. I just have no idea what to do.
I need sleep. I work 50 hours a week. I have a tolerance to sleep meds, so that’s not going to help too much. I’ve locked myself in our basement room with the lights off for hours and still I just kinda chilled there until I went crazy from thinking. Fuck, I hope this question even makes sense.
Help me, Fluther.. you’re my only hope.
