Insomnia got me up this morning, nothing like waking up from a sweet dream where everything is going swimming, your wonderful one is right there and in your arms and you are flying the two of you away to Valhalla and huh? what? no... let's get back to that nice dream. "nope your ass is awake for the rest of the evening, morning night whatever."
So you find that God in her wisdom thinks this is a good time to research insomnia. To Witt:

Insomnia is a symptom[1] of a sleeping disorder characterized by persistent difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep despite the opportunity. Insomnia is a symptom, not a stand-alone diagnosis or a disease. By definition, insomnia is "difficulty initiating or maintaining sleep, or both" and it may be due to inadequate quality or quantity of sleep. It is typically followed by functional impairment while awake. Both organic and non-organic insomnia constitute a sleep disorder.[2]

According to the United States Department of Health and Human Services in the year 2007, approximately 64 million Americans regularly suffer from insomnia each year.[3] Insomnia is 1.4 times more common in women than in men.[4]

See, God does have a sense of humor. It occurs in 1.4 men to every 1 women. no wonder we want to screw around at 4 am. " Jezz baby, i can't sleep." Until now it has been viewed as a wimp ass cry of a horny dude. Yet in truth it is the voice of a loving God sending comfort to her sons through the sisters of after midnight mercies.
We have so much to learn on this mortal plane.

For the record this post is at 4:39 am EST.


  1. I suffer from insomnia--it's a bitch. I've written posts at that time or read or...hell I dunno, just wished I could sleep again!

  2. EOR...
    I rather enjoy being up at odd hours, i have learned to see it as God,(no joke) wanting to poke around in my mind. Some good stuff gets done, yet you can't fight the feeling. If it sucks in your mind, it sucks. lol no matter what anyone else says.

  3. The asshole me wants to say, "God, this post put me to sleep"...but I would wake up at 3 in the morning thinking I pissed you off...continued to 5 a.m., composing an apologetic email in my head. Great post, Punch :)

    But, seriously...I agree, some very good stuff can come out of those periods. If one can just stay away from the S.O.M.M's

  4. JadedJ... Ahh yes the dear Sisters. On a bad night I am thankful for the insomnia, it is far to be perfered to the screaming, stark, cold, sweat, of waking up from dreaming of the love gone wrong. "Jezz baby, i just fell in love with you, i did not mean anything unpleasent".
    Deep breathing,(not like thatJJ) and counting breaths helps, on occasion. ( EOR )

    On another note, if this post puts the insomniac to sleep, then obviously i'm god servant.
