Life has been steeped with work lately. For me. For Mr. Mo. For BroMo, too.
I have been thinking about work all the time.
I've always had trouble sleeping. My mind races constantly, all day long, and it doesn't stop when I'm lying in bed. I think about everything and nothing.
I'm always thinking about something.
It's hard to turn it off. I can't turn it off. I can never turn it off.
But, these days, my mind races with work. It's a jumble of thoughts. A mish-mash of madness. I couldn't sleep last night, and I actually woke up angry.
Angry! Who wakes up angry? I am angry just thinking about waking up angry. I don't even know why I was angry. Maybe I was angry that I didn't get enough sleep.
I feel like I'm juggling 9,236,847 things.
Makes it even harder to sleep.
Been there, done (doing?) that. Wish I had something helpful to say. Hope things improve soon.ReplyDelete
The single best thing that has helped my sleep is exercise.ReplyDelete
I know you love law, but have you considered a career change?
Do what is right for you and your family, and that's for you to be happy and healthy.
Spring is coming dude, things will be better.
Chin up, kiddo!
When I am superbusy at work I often dream of it. Like doing engineering calculations in my sleep. I wake up angry from that too.ReplyDelete
It will get better.
sleep is most wanted for me except i have the same problem - thinking too much. i can't say it will get better. i think it is our personality. unless we learn to let go, we will continue to struggle. ahhhh life. only hope things slow down for you. take another vacation!ReplyDelete
I have insomnia, too. I got a new "prescription" yesterday: daily exercise. Not happy about that but I'm willing to try anything for sleep.ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear that. I can empathize.ReplyDelete
Warm fuzzies being sent your way.
I wish I had some gem of wisdom to share, but I don't. I hope this passes soon and you will be back to a blissfully normal sleeping schedule.ReplyDelete
i have nothing but a hug to give you.ReplyDelete
well, i have cookies, too, but they won't keep till i see you.
that didn't help a bit, did it?
totally know how you feel, unfortunately. i'll send you some of my sleepiness.ReplyDelete
insomniac here, too. I agree with the other comments - exercise helps. but I'm too lazy to exercise these days.ReplyDelete
sorry, hopefully things get better soon!
I can feel you on that one. I hope things get better soon for you. I usually wake up angry if I haven't resolved something that is bothering me, and it goes away once I do. Maybe beating down some people will help! ;)ReplyDelete
I hate that feeling. A list of should do, what if’s & need to do. It usually ends with me crying over something small. But deep down inside I know it’s really about the big unresolved issues.ReplyDelete
Hope you feel better soon. Or at least have a good cry (again).
i've been having similar issues lately too. i hope it gets better for you :)ReplyDelete
I'm sorry. You sound like my husband. He has the same issues and is miserable sometimes. I wish I could help! I hope you sleep soon!ReplyDelete
I feel like the only times I've ever woken up angry have been due to work. ArggggghReplyDelete
I'm sorry ... the worst is when I realize I'm drafting legal documents in that state of semi-consciousness in the wee hours of the morning ... not cool!ReplyDelete
Tomorrow, we can discuss going in on a group purchase of an island in Bali or Thailand, and we can all live there for cheap. I bet you wouldn't wake up angry then!ReplyDelete
I'm sorry to hear that. I hope it gets better with work soon.ReplyDelete
aww hang in there! sleep is the cousin of death and over rated anyway. these days I know how you feel.ReplyDelete
One of the reasons I have trouble sleeping is that my thoughts just race away. So I typically listen to an audiobook or podcast - by focusing on that, my internal monologue is eliminated.ReplyDelete
dude. we are two peas right now. two peas.ReplyDelete
I've woken up angry more than a few times because of bad or annoying dreams. I had my share of work-realted ones last year, so I feel for you. Hopefully things will be an entirely different story in a few weeks. :)ReplyDelete
exercise is the key to all of it. the stress, the insomnia, the blues. it was such a good mood regulator for me last year. and helped me fit in my clothes. wah.ReplyDelete
I'm hoping things have calmed down since this post. :(ReplyDelete
