Have you ever yawned and just felt that it would not be satisfying? They roll in one after the other, make your eyes water, but they do nothing for you?
I’ve gotten two hours of sleep tonight from 12 to 2, but have been unable to go back to sleep. It’s frustrating and even becoming painful(?). I can feel the tiredness in me, but I can’t do anything to help it along. I tried classical music, soothing sounds and music, mindfulness imagery, crying. Nothing. I’m hoping that this entry will tire me out more and I’ll be asleep in no time.
There’s another unsatisfying yawn.
It’s 3:04am now. I have to be up at 5:30am to work 7am to 5pm. I can do it, but I definitely prefer to be rested. Not necessarily well-rested. Just somewhat rested.
These yawns are getting old.
That last one felt a little better. I’m going to try to sleep again. Wish me luck. And good luck to all those struggling, too.
