4am wide awake club.
What is that about?
Light virtually all night and my head is like a toyshop so I am here. Writing this. The sky is blue, I have seen a jogger, 3 squirrels, a milkman, a drunk. Insomnia is a bummer but at this time of year it doesn’t feel so bad. Sitting gazing out at the bright blue sky, with a dog asleep on each foot. I know in my heart of hearts I must go and live in the sunshine one of these years. In my dreams (when I used to be asleep long enough to have dreams) it would be a warm, wonderful place offering health giving delights, then about 8pm the sun would go down so the light sensitive freaks – of which I am one – can sleep soundly through a midnight dark night.
I have worn ear plugs, eye masks, socks, I’ve tried Nytol herbal, Nytol pharmaceutical, and as a last resort Night Nurse but I am such a woos I am too scared to take that 2 nights in a row in case I get addicted. Yeh I know. As a well known swigger of the wine it is the irony that it’s the Night Nurse I am warning myself against.
So, a pint of Creme De Menthe, a dark cave and total silence sounds like the only answer. Only problem with that ? It’d be so dark and quiet I’d be terrified.
You see this insomnia it turns you into a rambling, baggy faced gargoyle.
Yup a good plastic surgeon that’s what I need off to google one now.
