This is What No Sleep Looks Like


It is easy to say, “I haven’t been sleeping well for the last week.” It is less easy to give people, even medical people, a snapshot of exactly what the brain (my brain at least) is doing… while it isn’t sleeping.

I’ve not slept over two hours at a time for the last four nights. Sometimes I nod off durning the day for a little bit. While I was not sleeping last night, I thought I’d write a simple post. None of this has been edited or changed to make myself sound less… well less… you’ll see. (I’m pasting in the Word Doc I was writing in. I’ve had to adjust for line breaks because WordPress is printing the text without line breaks all the way across the screen and into the side bar drop down lists and such. I also had to adjust for tablet viewing.) This is how it went:

I’m so tired. I’m going back to aleep in just a few minutes, but I want to ahare sometjin kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

I just fell asleep. It’s been three nights since I’ve flee;dddddddddddddddddddddddddddlk,…….

That’s all of it. I went to bed and slept a while. I’m not sure for how long. I’m sure this must seem silly, and you might even be considering whether or not I made it up. I have a good imagination, but this is too boring. As is everyone’s right, you may interpret it as you will. As for me… I’m going to take a nap. I’m starting to nod off again. Lordy…

    • No, no, it really has to be funny doesn’t it? I’d go bonkers if it weren’t. I’m always amused when I can’t sleep and I decide to get out my trusty iPad mini and make some notes or something. And then… I don’t understand why this is so surprising to me… I’m surprised when the little turncoat smacks me right in the face! And then, I’m awake again.
