Sleep Don’t Come

While my sleepless nights are much more rare these days, occasionally they still plague me. Friday night was a plague night.

A couple of events contributed to the sleeplessness and even my Calm app couldn’t overcome it. One was a totally random, yet bizarre occurrence that I really wish I could write about but can’t because I don’t want anyone I know to read it and realize I’m talking about them. Tallahassee is a small town and one never knows what might come back to bite one in the butt.

The other event was something that I can’t discuss because it affects someone I love. I worried over this person literally all night long. Send some good vibes her way if you’re so inclined.

Bottom line–this post is a whole lot of “I can’t tell you anything.” Weird, because I usually spill all the beans and then some. Maybe later.

In the meantime, here’s a song that always makes me think of sleepless nights. Don’t worry, no one’s cheating on anyone.

Thank you, Hank Willians.

  1. Sleep better. I understand, also. Although if Tallahassee is a small town, then the village in the mountains I was raised in was a hamlet. We knew one another by name. Years later, I still remember their names. In my part of Florida, I rarely see the same person twice when shopping in the same area.

    1. I grew up in a really small town in Texas and I know what you mean. I was related to half the town and my parents worked with the other half. Tally isn’t that small, but it’s too small to name names and recount weird occurrences.

      2. Damn. I have occasionally had nights like that, but mine are generally nights when I’m so sleepy I can’t keep my eyes open, except whe I finally get into bed I can’t sleep. Sometimes I’ll fall asleep around 2 and sleep a few hours.

  2. sorry sleep alluded you – and partly for worrying about someone you love – and I did lift them up in prayer –
    and hope you get caught up soon.
    and side note – last week I slept a bit too much – well not at all too much – but think I had the flu and fought it off with sleep.
    get this…
    I slept 12 hours one day –
    whew –
    10 another – and then 6 hours and another couple in a nap
    but felt great since end of last week

      1. yes – and I am grateful to have had the time to sleep –
        and one of the days I had to be somewhere at 5:30 and woke a little before 5
        and akse dry hubs if he was going to wake me and he said – nope…
        but thank goodness I got up – and I would have set my alarm but it was around 1 when I took the nap and had no idea of how much I would sleep –\
        anyhow, try getting a nice mineral blend and see if it helps you sleep.
        some folks insist that “calm magnesium” helps them
        but for me – I live on Life Flo magnesium chloride flakes –
        a doctor friend told me about the item in 2015 and I have told many folks about it – and I know a different doctor who uses the magnesium chloride as part of her migraine therapy.
        it is really great stuff.

        but when your sleep is not happening – it could be related to mineral imbalance and look for something with calcium magnesium and d3 and maybe zinc….
        Costco has an award winning calcium mag blend too – highly suggest it

  3. Insomnia is an old friend of mine, but not so much at the moment. I hope everything works out ok (whatever it is).
    Merry Christmas to you and your family I wish you well for 2020.
