I stayed up & did all my work so I can get some much needed rest today & dammit all I want is to find a comfortable position that doesn't make my legs hurt or for the medicine to work or for the muscle relaxer to knock me TF out or for the Biofreeze to work!

Fuuuuuuccccccck!!!!!!
One of those days that I'm glad I documented my frustrations with falling asleep.

Because now I can project the minimum amount of time I need to stay asleep while the house is quiet.
Of course I have no idea what awakened me but we're going to gloss right over that for another day.
It's weird because I don't wake up because someone knocked. I wake up then one to three minutes later someone calls, knocks, texts.

It's either my sensitivity or the (new) anxiety.
My sister observed what I long suspected and later confirmed in a sleep study; I'm an incredibly light sleeper.

I was not safe as a child, for at least half my childhood years ending when I becane a teen.
So anyway. Recording this helped soothe me. I hope it encourages other people whose sleep issues contribute to their illness(es) to explore their sleep issues.
Knowing when I have trouble sleeping, pondering why, looking for these answers has helped bit by bit over the last decade. It may even lead to a health breakthrough.
Forgot to add #myspoons so I can find this later.
