For some reason, I get so sleepy in the middle of the day that I can’t even think. I try to fight through it most days but sometimes I succumb and take a nap.
Regardless, if I have napped or not when it is time to go to bed, I am wired and can’t sleep.
I have always been a night owl. My mother said I had my days and nights mixed up as a baby. I wanted to sleep all day and stay up all night.
I have tried my entire life to force myself to live by the traditional time of others. It has resulted in insomnia and a really whacked out circadian rhythm. Hypothyroidism and perimenopause have done nothing to help it, just another one of the joys of getting older that no one tells you about.
