The Thing With Sleep Is...

My own experience with insomnia and the vicious sleep cycle in which I live.

I don't sleep. No big deal.

The thing with sleep is you can wait forever for it. Just because you are waiting though doesn't mean it will come. Lie real still in complete silence and total darkness with your eyes closed and that bastard won't even look in your direction! Won't even visit or stop in and say hello! Pills are of no use, they don't work. Calming music, beach sounds, rain on the roof, negative. You can't force it, you can't force sleep. Then when you are least expecting it...SMACK right in the face you are out, of course it's now 5 minutes before that 4:30 alarm so you can drag yourself out of bed and work life away, always hoping for sleep the next time. It's a vicious cycle.
