Summer time insomnia.

What is it about the summer months that keeps me awake in the dead of the night? The inner insomniac takes control, driving the inner sanctum of the bed and pillows from my life, but not from my mind. Unable to sleep, I take to the computer, but alas, no solace is found. I just find my mind wandering until I give up on technology and submerge myself into the consuming darkness, letting my mind wander, letting my thoughts drift, turning inward on myself in inflection, introspection and just plain daydreaming until that gnaws away at my fragile psyche, forcing me to seek activity of some sort, forcing me back online. Sometimes I ponder my way into depression. Sometimes into jubilance. Into nostalgia. Wistfulness. Melancholy. Regret. And everything else under the sun. I do this by dwelling on the past, the present, the future for varying lengths to varying depths at varying intervals. There is no consistency. There is no pattern. Just one constant. My ever turning wheels of thought as I try to drift off into dreamland. Or do I try? I wonder just what it is that keeps me up sometimes. Is it the heat? Some kind of biological perennial pattern imprinted in my body and mind? Is it outside of my control, or do I will myself to stay awake? Subconsciously? Consciously? Do I want to continue the day in hopes of…..something, or am I hesitant, reluctant to begin the next? I don’t know. Oh well, time to cast off the computer once more, the third time tonight, and try to get some shut eye. What will I think of until then? I wonder.

I must be awake too..or I wouldn't be able to read this. If I worry about not sleeping then I never go to sleep...too much worry....so I usually find something to do..clean the house, read, draw pictures and paint, play the air guitar, find someone online to talk too...in other words I try to stay in the present and forget about the past and future....then I fall asleep....fuck ...now I'll be up all night

I don’t sleep much myself so I can sympathize with you there… done the sleep tests, doctor visits, and all that wonderful stuff that comes with long term cases of insomnia.

The not being able to stop thinking when its time for bed would be what they (doctors) would call psychosomatic insomnia… Its one of my two sleeping problems and it’s a lovely pain in the ass isn’t it. Unfortunately I don’t have any working advice to help you out though I could suggest things to try if you want non-medical advice.

Since you mentioned perennial pattern and heat it makes me think of summer and if it only happens then it could be what they call reverse seasonal affective disorder or sometimes summer sad…

For me insomnia is a year round issue. Last night was the most sleep I have gotten in the past 2 weeks. 5 hrs. Yippee!! usually its 2 or 3. If the insomnia continues i would suggest you go into your doctor and have sleep tests done on you and see if its a medical problem.
