I am having sleep issues. Major sleep issues. This happens every so often, but usually for not more than one or two weeks. For four weeks now I have had crazy insomnia to the point that I am getting no more than a few hours of sleep every night. It’s more than just having a hard time getting to sleep, it’s also that I can’t STAY asleep. Some nights I wake up as often as every 20 or 30 minutes. Actually, I shouldn’t say I ‘wake up’ because really, I feel like I never actually get all the way to sleep on those nights. It’s probably some stress with school, and some just my crazy restless mind syndrome. I have taken regular Ambien, but that just puts me to sleep, it doesn’t keep me asleep. At the beginning of the school year I got some Ambien CR, but that stuff made me feel drunk and crazy and tired (go figure…). Last night I was up until around 2:30am, then wide awake for no apparent reason at 5am. I am irritable. This needs to stop!!!
In other news, one of my students from last year had a seizure in class last week. Everyone was pretty terrified because she recently had heart surgery, but we got news today that she is doing fine and will be back to school soon. Scary stuff, she’s awfully young to have to be dealing with such major health issues.
