It’s 3.51am

And I am more or less wide awake, much to my annoyance. My body ahs decided that, on an occasion during lockdown when I’ll actually be going to work, that sleep isn’t necessary. Though I feel tired, my brain is refusing to power down for the night.

This isn’t the first time I’ve been unable to sleep, though lately I’ve been having more and more trouble switching off. I don’t know if it’s something to do with lockdown, but I have to assume it’s along those lines. After all, the last time I struggled to get to sleep was also the night before a rare day at work – some form of anxiety around it all perhaps?

Whatever the reason, I’m going to march to a pharmacy tomorrow for something stronger than the rather useless herbal sleeping tablets in the medicine cupboard. I took a couple prior to going to bed and still feel like this. What a joke.
