Or won't let myself? The guy at the Crisis Line said to make some warm milk and do some reading. But I'm getting un-focusy from all the lack of sleep.
Nancy said:I have to admit that a couple of weeks ago I had trouble getting to sleep. I felt like I just had too much energy to sleep. It was a first for me as normally I just crash and could sleep forever. Anyway, I thought of counting sheep in order to get to sleep but the funny thing was when I did that I started to imagine the sheep going over the fence backwards and their butts in the air which made me start obsessing about how big the sheeps butt was and I started to think that my butt was probably just as big and well....it didn't work. How thinking of counting sheep can lead me to thinking about my butt being too big...I don't know. I guess it is just how my brain works. Anyway, I just wanted to add that obviously for me I know that counting sheep does not work. I told a friend of mine this and after she laughed (and yes I laughed when I thought about it too....only after the thoughts had left) she suggested that I try to count them going forward over the fence, which seemed to work.
Okay, so why did I tell you all this... I just wanted to let everyone know that sometimes counting sheep backwards is not necessarily a good thing. :yikes:
