Sleepless early morningsAugust 5, 2009
I used have problems with a patch of wakefulness every morning. It was from about 3:30-5:00am. For months I would watch my old roommate walk past my window as he left for work as a bread delivery man in the early hours of the day.
For a while, I would do a lot of writing during these hours, but was afraid I was programming myself to be awake then. I tried sleep therapy, I got a new bed, but nothing seemed to work except a change of scenery. When I moved, it went away, for a while. It came back at The Lair (my Commercial Drive apartment) and again at Le Attic. I’ve been good for four months here… but if the last week is any indication…
I may be in for another long few months.
My auto-wake also happens at 8:30 every morning. No matter when I go to bed, it seems nearly impossible to sleep in.
What am I getting at? I have no idea. I guess I’m just complaining about being tired and the lack of things to do at 3:30am.
Any readers have sleep tips? Why am I waking up? How can I sleep through the night?
