My lovely partner got me this wonderful little clock and as you can see its now 5.13am and I thought I'd write a post seeing as sleep is not my friend tonight.
I'm quite lucky with my insomnia I suppose because I don't really get to itchy at night… Unless I get frustrated with being awake.. Then I get itchy!! I'll usually have a couple of maintenance scratches throughout the night.. But when I have nights like this (usually only when I don't take an antihistamine) I usually just try go with the flow. And the flow is wide awake!
I vividly remember last time I was going through TSW and I would be wide awake every night between midnight at 5am (this was before I found out about the lovely drowsy antihistamines).. I had this tiny little spotlight that strapped onto my finger and lay in bed and I'd read every book I could get my hands on and I could just NOT understand why I had insomnia when my whole life I'd always been a big sleeper. I'm glad I know now whats causing this I just wish I knew how long it's going to take before I can get a solid (unmedicated) nights sleep again.
After reading up on a lot of other warriors experiences with this issue it seems that the insomnia can improve anywhere between 4 - 9 months for the solid sleep habits to come back. EEEk. Oh well at least for now I've got something nice to look at on my wide awake nights :)
