I think the worst part about having insomnia is knowing the fact that you have only a few options left to you in the dead of night…. okay… a few that you won’t REALLY regret when you wake up the next day *smirk*
You can sit up and watch television, going from infomercial to infomercial until you want to shove the t.v. out the window. (Actually, you WOULD regret that the next day)
You can read a book until you pass out over it, and wake up with your face mashed into a book the next day.
You can sit at your computer and play games until you can’t keep your eyes open, then suffer the next day at work because “I just wanna get ten more points in majong, I swear”
You can lay on your back and stare up at the ceiling in the dark, watching the ceiling fan spin into oblivion and count the number of times car lights come in through your window as they pass, until you pass out from sheer BOREDOM.
Me? I’ve done all of em lol. Can’t help it. I could get up early, work all day, then come home that night, hop on my treadmill and run forty miles, I’ll still be up late, lying in bed counting car lights until I feel like I’m losing my mind and heading back to my computer to type out another twenty or thirty or forty more pages with bleary eyes.
What about everyone else? What do you do when sleep takes its sweet time in coming? Are you a counter? A reader? A gamer? Channel Surfer? Marathon show-watcher?
I’ll admit it, I’ve tried them all.
