It's passed 12 AM, but I am nowhere near being sleepy. This happened last night too - not to mention the other nights, as I tossed and turned until 3 AM. Funny thing is, even if I slept that late, I'd still be out and about at 7 AM. In my younger years, I do remember sleeping like a log and waking up as late as 10 AM. I sorely miss those days. Ugh, I really sound old. I keep wondering what the heck happened. Why sleep is evading me these days? Even at nights I do get some sleep, I would wake up even to the softest click or chirp. It was two years ago when I realized that I have unwillingly become a light sleeper who suffers from insomnia from time to time.
Is this all part of growing old? Have I succumbed to the damaging effects of stress and anxiety? If one cannot sleep, where does sleep go?
