Eyes glued open

Have you ever had insomnia?
How do you handle it?
For me, it’s a life-long affliction. Going to bed early means being wide awake at 2 a.m., so I just stay up until the eyes are fried. Get a lot of blog posts written in the middle of the night.
Seriously though, there are many things you can do to combat insomnia, as outlined in THIS ARTICLE.
It’s well known that computers are on the symptom-causing list, but, many of us don’t pay it any mind.
Alrighty then, OFF TO BED!
This was originally published on June 18, 2013. Not much has changed since then, except I finally let the doctor talk me into taking part in one of those overnight sleep studies at the hospital. Frankly, this freaks me out more than a little! I have enough trouble sleeping as it is and can’t imagine it will be any easier wearing various wires and attachments. What happens when I have to get up to pee in the middle of the night? What if I can’t sleep? How much privacy is there? One week to go and I’m getting more trepidatious by the day! Of course, you know there’s going to be a blog post about this, yes? 😉
Have you participated in one of these sleep studies? What’s it like?
Looking forward to your comments!
