    Hello Crazy Little Brain of Mine,

    Lately it seems you are out of control. You won’t stop working and you are on overdrive. This hasn’t been productive for me and it’s caused me to lose sleep and I haven’t been able to concentrate. I wish I understood why you are running a muck in my life. I don’t know what to do to make you stop. Maybe if I understood why you are out of control, I could make you stop. But I don’t. All I know is that you are making me very unhappy and unstable.

    Please give me a break. I am tired. I need to work. I need to concentrate.

    Thank you in advance for listening and taking a much needed break.

      Seriously^^ If insomnia kicks in the last thing I do is something unproductive (eating, TV, laying there trying to force sleep). One thing to take note is to not force it, if you don’t sleep within the first 15 minutes that means you have to get up and do something. Reading a book always helps ease the mind, warm milk, music that is low and relaxing, etc. Even a bit of exercise will do (note that you cannot do this to late or your body will not adjust to the necessary sleep post fatigue).

      If that doesn’t work think of what work you could do; in my case I study notes and do a bit of reading in the mix for class. It helps settle in the drowsiness. However for severe sleep deprivation there are medications which should be the last resort. As for myself I have had severe sleep deprivation for years but doing the above helps in getting at least 3-5 hours tops so I make use of my time when I am awake.
