Merlin - Sleepy Studying

I need a nap!

I don't know what's going on with me. I am sooooo tired!

This past week my sleep has been strange. I've had highly vivid dreams, including one that startled me so much that I actually woke myself up calling out (in the dream and in actual life). After that I wanted to whimper and curl up in a ball, I felt so disturbed and unsettled. I'm really not sure why I dreamed something that upset me like that.

Then this morning I woke up extra early and couldn't get back to sleep. I knew I'd only had about four and a half hours of solid sleep, I knew I wanted to sleep more, but my mind couldn't shut up. So I laid there for an hour-ish, thinking, and then got up to read.

Now it's only 8pm and the lack of sleep has caught up with me. I'm so tired, I almost fell asleep in my arm chair. I am so TIRED.

But I'm afraid to go to bed this early. One, because it's only freaking 8pm, and two, because I have occasional insomnia so I try not to go to bed at weird times (weird for me) so that I don't throw off my whole sleep schedule. I don't want to go to bed now, and wake up wide awake at 3am.

What is up with me?

  • Current Location: Falling asleep sitting up
  • Current Mood: exhausted exhausted
  • Current Music: The theme song to Elementary (starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu), composed by Sean Callery
I think I know what could be the reasons for both the dreams and the waking up early. Or I may be completely wrong...

Funny, I watched Elementary when trying to stay awake not to mess up my sleep schedule. Guess the theme song could have worked too :)
