As I am sure many of you out there also do, I suffer from insomnia and have done for several years. Who knows, maybe some of you are even reading this in the small hours of the morning, unable to get to sleep once again. I try to make the best of a bad situation and sometimes use the time to think or write but for the most part I just want to scream into a pillow and pull my hair out.
Amusingly (because if I don’t laugh about it, I’ll cry), I have recently been told that I may also have anaemia – a condition where your blood is low in iron, resulting in the sufferer feeling tired a lot of the time. So my body wants me to sleep more than normal but my brain causes me to sleep less than normal; I’ve always been a fan of irony but that just seems cruel.
This might be a bit of a random post but I guess I just hoped for the reassurance that I’m not the only one whose body is a massive contradiction of itself, since it seems for me that things are not likely to change any time soon. Still, they say every writer has their issues, so if these are my dues; I am willing to pay them.
