Elusive Sleep

September 13, 2010

Why can’t I sleep? I mean – I can fall asleep, no problem – I just can’t stay asleep. Every couple of hours I’m up, in between ludicrous dreams. I’ve tried sleep aids, aromatherapy homeopathy,  and yes – even Romeotherapy…..still up, several times a night.

I used to read articles about how women, in particular, would trade anything from sex to shopping for a good night’s sleep…now here I am begging on sleep’s door for some regularity. True, I’ve never been a great sleeper…True, since having kids I’ve been a worse sleeper – but now? Now, I’m done with menopause – kids are big – what’s the deal? And please – could it be a little more aggravating that my husband’s head hits the pillow and off he goes into La-La Land – and apparently dreamlessly too.

If only I could find a way to make money while I’m awake those every two hours….
