Insomnia: a to z of mental health

Can't sleep, won't sleep
Though I desperately try
Want sleep, beg for sleep
Makes it worse, but why?

So tired, more tired
It's getting ever worse
Really wired, over tired
This is like a curse


Insomnia is something I've had off and on since my teenage years, it's the worst form of torture and one I have a whole toolkit of methods to deal with.  This is my attempt at sharing how it feels.

Awwww...the devil of insomnia.

I used to write about that a lot, too.

'It's only at night that my demons come out...
I run and I scream and I hide and I shout...
...but they find me."

I've gotten a lot better over the years at shutting my mind off.

And getting my hormones all balanced helped a lot, too!

Thanks for linking.

I hope you have some sweet slumber tonight.
