Every muscle in my body is aching.
I can barely find the energy to sit up in my chair.
My mind has slipped into an energy sparing melancholia.
I should be fast asleep.
But I'm not. I've spent the last five hours staring at my bedroom ceiling, unable to sleep despite the new depths of fatigue I am currently exploring. I've been back in lectures for a while. Thus the lack of posts, I havent had anything of worth to blog about. Given how exhausted I've been when on placement I decided to take some time off working as a bank carer as well. Finally get some time to just be a student. Unfortunately this is how my body always reacts when I go a prolonged period without work. The lecturers arent challenging(for anyone) at the moment, and despite the fact I am still being very active for some reason I just cant seem to function unless I am working myself to the point of sickness.
In the past I have tried everything through medications, herbal remedies and alcohol (not at the same time) to correct this purpose-deprived insomnia but nothing touches it. So I thought I would throw it out to all you guys, what wierd and wonderful tactics/potions/tricks do you guys use to treat insomnia. Anyone who comes up with something that actually works will earn my undying gratitude.
