Concurrence. Or confluence. Take your pick.
The nice sleep I was getting last week is gone. This week I can't fall asleep for the life of me, and keep waking up at 3am.

I suppose this is a sign of having too much on my mind.

Too much going on.

Too many plans.

Too many worries.

If there's a way to make my brain shut up that doesn't involve getting drunk on a worknight, I'm all ears.

EDIT: Now there's noise, like... I don't know what, actually. Like someone screwing something into the wall behind my head, and moving furniture.

Meditation? Reading a nice book? Watching... um... something really boring? :-)

What I ended up doing was watching TV until I couldn't keep my eyes open anymore.

This is really not a feasible long-term solution... If I hadn't been able to load up on caffeine after I got to work, I wouldn't have managed to stay awake all day on 4 hours' sleep.

I've been having the same problem. :\ I keep on waking up every few hours, and when I officially DO wake up, I'm exhausted.

I'm going through a lot of stress, too, so what I did was adjust my work schedule so it's not going to break my brain, and I've been feeling a little better.

What plans are you thinking about?

Half-baked ones, mostly. ^_~

Not big stuff like "where is my life going" but small stuff like "what am I going to do about lunch tomorrow" and "should I get up and turn the a/c up/down" and "how am I going to entertain myself tomorrow evening" and "is that a mosquito bite or a flea bite" and "what about those dishes in the sink, they're not going to do themselves"... They're actually pretty obnoxious things to think about.
