Insomnia

20 03 2009

It’s 4:12. That’s 04:12. 4:12 AM. In the morning. It’s dark, and most people are asleep. But what am I doing? I’m sitting at my computer, because I can’t get to sleep. Ridiculous. Why can’t I sleep? I want to sleep. I want to sleep so badly.

It just started raining now. I can hear the raindrops falling. It’s rather soothing, and I hope that maybe it will help in my quest to fall asleep? Doubt it though. Ok, enough boring nonsense. I’m off to bed. Hopefully I will actually get to sleep now. Wish me luck. And I hope everybody reading this got a good night’s sleep. Because I didn’t.

PS. Is it just me or does my writing style suffer when I’m unable to sleep? Seems very disjointed and blocky. Oh well.

Here’s a related poll. Fill it in. Just for fun.

The RAS (Reticular Activating System) is responsible for sleep. It enables one to block out unnecessary stimuli (like, are you focusing on breathing right now?) and as such, when there is “little enough” stimuli, it helps you sleep. So, music, lights (ie: from a computer) or even reading are not good ways to evoke sleep.

Sorry, I won’t continue with melatonin-serotonin and the wake-sleep cycle…

Haha… I’m the only one who doesn’t generally have trouble getting to sleep. I suggest bedtime stories
