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.

  1. If it’s any consolation, for me, menopause was much easier to deal with than perimenopause.

  2. I also struggle to sleep at night even if I only have 10 minutes nap in the day. I’ve found cutting down on sugar has helped with the energy crashes. Thanks for linking up with the #bigpinklink this week.

  3. I feel for you! Maybe stay up until 2AM & sleep until 10AM? I should have asked if you work outside the home before that suggestion! Thank you for sharing on Party in Your PJ’s. I love the Still to come… graphic! Pinned.
