Tossing and Turning

July 20, 2009

Oh no. Here it goes.
9:30
Ugh, sweaty.
Too lazy to flip to cold side of the pillow.
Still time for good sleep.
Can’t change position (discomfort)
Will be asleep soon
9:33
Flip to cold side of pillow.
Come on now. Sleeeeeeeep
Close eyes — not too hard — will disturb oncoming slumber.
Don’t scare sleep by moving,
Stay still, entice it, lure it.
10:15
Okay, get comfy and sleep.
Shift. Move. Toss. Adjust.
There!
Oh no…
Itch — ignore it!
Ugh. Cant. Focus. On. Sleep.
Itchhhhhhh
There. Ugh.
How did I get comfy?
11:30
Uh oh.
Sleepiness has left me.
PANIC!!!!
No! Calm down! You’ll never fall asleep like that!
No! Itch! Scratch!
Sweat! Move!
Think! Analyze! Toss! Turn!
Midnight.
Dammit.
This isn’t working.
Nothing to do. Just wait?
Okay.
Close eyes.
Still.
Itch.
Dammit.
Ignore.
Itch.
Alright!
Scratch.
Ugh.
1:00 AM
Dammit.
