mermaid on the mic
god damn it. here I am, again.

the fucking chinese herbs (which were so rad for a while) have stopped working already, and I haven't even run out of them yet! I was good with them too - making sure not to take them every night. i'll miss the strange (but, as promised, not unpleasant) dreams.

and I'm not even stressed out or unhappy (well, except for being stressed out and unhappy about not being able to go to sleep... which can hardly be considered the cause of my not being able to sleep...! or, if it is, then I guess I'm really fuxxored. that's just TOO damn recursive... heh.) seriously, though - things are really good overall. I don't know what's wrong with me right now.

and I need to sleep so I can work on sewing stuff tomorrow! it's going well, but there is not a lot of time and I need to stay on it.


i think i'm going to fix a nice stiff drink, drink it, and then try for the sleeping again. i'd best go down and turn off the "sun" too, before turning in.

I'm feeling: frustrated meh
I'm hearing: a freight train going by (again)

5 smooches or Gimme Some Love!

Drinking isn't a good answer because it'll just make your sleep more restless and wake you up when it wears off in 3-4 hours.

Coincidentally, the mind hacks blog I read just posted about sleep disorders and they had a link to a U of Maryland site about Helpful hints to help you sleep

Oh and actually yes your stress and anxiety about not being able to sleep probably is making it harder to sleep.

Feel better, sweetie! Missed you at the party last night - but I'm part of another sagittarian birthday next week on 12/10 - details TBD on Tribe.net.

actually, i've been in that kind of recursive insomnia cycle before -- can't sleep, stress about not being able to sleep, which makes it harder to go to sleep, which stresses me out more... gah.

also, you've got a lot of stuff on the back burner that's not bad at all, which may be keeping you awake as well. [or was, since hopefully you've managed to get to sleep by now as it's BLOODY WELL NOON and i'm just waking up...]
