Am I an OLD BAT?
Lately I have been in a menopausal funk! My sleep is discombobulated. I ask myself if I’m depressed, but I’m not. My body THINKS it’s on the night shift of life. It’s official, I am a MOLE or a BAT, living life in the dark of night, I am awake only in darkness. Hmmm.... I wonder if this is where the title OLD BAT comes from. My whole sleeping regime has changed. Even when I try to sleep through the night, my body jolts awake. I am wide awake many nights, and dead tired in the day. I have creative insomnia. I lay there, and poetry comes flooding in, I hop up to get it quickly down. Then pop back into bed only to see videos, of creative art, and other things running around in my brain. No little voices talking to me yet. Finally the morning light peeks through the blinds and off to dreamland I go….I REFUSE to take any sleeping pills. When I sleep it’s a good sleep, it’s just not on a good schedule. I’m hoping it’s a temporary thing. Does anyone else have this problem? HELP, I need answers from women, who’ve been here done this!
