The last few nights I have been waking up around 3am and finding it impossible to get back to sleep.  I have no trouble whatsoever falling asleep, I’m out like a light! But I wake up in the wee small hours and a million thoughts start running riot in my head.  It can be random things, worrying that the roofing guy STILL has not fixed the broken tiles and there is damp in the loft, that the hotel we have booked for our Lisbon trip is too far out of the city, why my awful sister is so utterly nasty to me for no reason, how she has brainwashed her kids into hating Dad and Pierre and I and why she would do that?, where am I with the housework this week?, my car needs washing, do I drink too much? (probably), and the list goes on and on! reading this back it all seems so ridiculous! but yet there I lay, wide awake, only to finally go back to sleep about an hour before the alarm goes off.  When I do go back to sleep I have the most vivid dreams and nightmares.  Last night I dreamed I was walking by the ocean and there was a big old car coming down the beach, full of men, it flew past me then turned around and came back, I tried to jump out of the way but I fell in the water and the car drove over the top of me and pinned me under it, People will come I thought, rescue is at hand, I could feel the weight of the car on me, it was getting darker and darker, then I woke up in a cold sweat.  Heaven knows what all this means, thank goodness it’s the weekend and I can stay in bed a bit later tomorrow!

  1. Those are obsessive thoughts-the O part of OCD. Might be something to think about. I used to do this too but a psychiatrist prescribed a mild dose of lorazepam. Not enough to make me groggy but enough to shut my brain up at night.

  2. Oh my Goddess, same here! Its so annoying. Even my Niacin and Magnesium before bed aren’t helping.

    I rather like the bedroom where one can look at the stars. That might be nice to wake up to in the middle of the night.

  3. Oh dear. Yes, you can get odd dreams with broken sleep. The other night I dreamt that I was on a bus with some other people, but each of us only had a £5 note for our fare when the conductress came along for our fares of a few pence each. The odd thing about this is that it’s at least 50 years since bus conductors/conductresses were employed to collect fares. Now of course you pay the driver 🙂
