Lullabye Me Please...


The entire night has passed by and I have yet to fall asleep (it's almost Sunday noon as I am writing this).

My head hurts like crazy and I'm in no mood to do anything but curl in bed until i cross the dark side. That I await now very, very impatiently.

I remember I used to have bouts of sleeplessness before, but those were during the most trying times of my life. Those were when problems came aplenty and sleep was but a barrier to doing the immediate solutions. It was then that I have proven that sleep-inducing medication are no match to an hyperactive brain. I tell you, I've tried them all without success.

But this time it's different. There was nothing bugging me except the desperate call for sleep to swallow me. And yup, the more I focus on it, the more difficult it seems. Darn!

* * *

I'm now listening to an internet feed of DWRR, hoping that the music will soothe my nerves and lull me to sleep. But no such luck. The corny deejay kept dishing her moronic jokes and irritates the listeners with her indulgent laughter. And everytime, after her senseless attack on the eardrums, the advertisements that follow are just as inane, inconsiderate and assaulting - they're either shouting or repetitive.

Why can't they just leave the FM airwaves to pure music?

If you have insomnia, try drinking a glass of warm milk before bedtime. I learned this from my brother. I don't know if this is effective but hey, there's no harm in trying. :)


Oh by the way, it seems you haven't change yet the link of my site "Asian Traveler". Please change it to http://www.anasiantraveler.com .
Thanks

I get those bad "nights" too. Frustrating talaga! One more thing you might want to try: dilute two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a cup of warm water and sweeten with honey. Another way to induce sleep is reading the Bible. I know it's such a bad thing to say, but it really makes me sleepy (which is why I do my quiet time in the morning). ;)

Asian Traveller: I think I tried that before but it didn't work. Well, there would indeed be no harm trying again. Btw, I've transfered your link to my "favorite wharves".

so anong oras ka na nakatulog? when that happens, read a book or watch TV - do something light that will induce sleepiness or at least tire your eyes :)

Apir tayo, torney! 2-3 hours of sleep, ok na ako :) Basta ako naglilinis na lang or basta magpaka-OC until I get deadbeat, maka tulog na ako :)
