I'm not normally an insomniac

It's 2:30 in the morning and no matter how hard I try I can't get to sleep. I had some coffee in the evening, which might have something to do with it, but that was six hours ago. There's a storm brewing outside. Other than the occasional roll of distant thunder and the hum of the air conditioner there is nothing but silence as I sit here on the bedroom floor with my laptop in the dark. My mind won't stop working but I have no coherent thoughts.


  1. I get that way all the time. Oddly enough, coffee seems to have the reverse effect on me...particularly flavored coffee like Irish Creme or some kind of Caramel something.... I've also found that a hot cup of Peppermint Tea can make me relax enough to allow sleep in.

  2. That sounds like a night for 3mg of melatonin. You'll be out in less than an hour, virtually guaranteed.
