When will morning arrive?

Sleeping lightly, I am suddenly awake

Is it night yet or has morning arrived

I check my watch, alas it is only 1:30 a m

I twist and turn, trying to find a comfortable position

I beat my pillow into submission, get my blanket just right

But the elusive sleep……… refuses to come even when invited

I turn the light on and get up, giving up on sleep

This light sleep is a gift from my thyroid medication

Now I can try to go back to sleep with the help of some medication

Or stay awake till my body is tired enough to want to sleep

I don’t have to get up early in the morning, I can sleep in

So I go out of my room and start to walk, hoping to tire myself

And then perhaps I’ll be able to fall asleep, way past morning!

Your prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “morning.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

  1. When sleeping is a problem, stress is the likely cause and could be psychological or physical or both. I sometimes back had a problem like this one and my solution to this was to try and tire my brains reading books till midnight when I am ready to sleep. Next in bed till morning. Now I have my mobile device to fight sleeplessness.

  2. I feel your pain with this one Sadje. At it’s extreme it can be 5am, 6am before I’m ready to sleep … so if its a work day, I am up at 5.30/6am so no sleep. Regrettably this has almost just become part of life and its more noticeable the nights I sleep well. The doctors can’t do much about it, so I have to just try to manage it as best I can. I’m glad your own situation is improving 🙂

  3. Sleep issues plauge many. Sometimes relaxation breathing helps, but also getting up and changing your location is also good. Our sleep cycles are interesting. Some dreams can be nightmares.

    Some say naps are good and others say don’t nap. I say when one is retired we can sleep in or nap when we want. Stay healthy and well. Worry less and stay healthy (((Hugs)))
