It was 3 am and I couldn’t sleep. So I decided to download load Adrianna Huffington’s ‘The Sleep Revolution‘ onto my kindle. It felt fit for my current situation.
After laying there until 5 am, I realised during this sleepless night; that I was the ‘one’ in the one in three people currently in Australia that has trouble sleeping. And, because I am a woman, it will have a greater effect on me.
My anxiety increased over the fact that I wasn’t yet asleep. I lay there worrying about the possible side effects I might experience the next day; like, poor response time, heightened emotional sensitivity or the possibility of falling into a micro-sleep while driving or operating machinery (not that I do ever operate machinery, but with this lack of sleep business, who knows what I’d end up doing!). I began to frantically search my way through the kindle pages and internet sources referenced in the book.
My insomnia ‘uprising’ had begun.
