Can't sleep. I went to bed quite some time ago and did the tossing and turning. Then realized that tomorrow (today) is a holiday and I didn't have to get up early. So I got back up and finished a book I was reading. Still wasn't tired and since my knee was hurting pretty badly, I got something to drink, a snack to eat since I can't take pain meds on an empty stomach and got a pain pill down. So now I'm waiting for the pain to lessen and for my eyes to get sleepy enough to go back to bed. here's hoping I won't have a long wait... -Claudia- image from pixabay

Do the pain pills help you sleep? That would have killed two birds with one stone if so. I hate when I can't sleep. Usually its caused by being worried about something and my head won't shut off to let me rest. Usually reading tires me out so I can fall asleep. What book is it you were reading?

Sometimes the pain pills do help me sleep but not always. I really haven't found anything that works for me all the time yet. I was reading "One Shot" by Lee Child. It's a Jack Reacher novel and it was very good. Now I've begun a Patricia Cornwell novel. It follows on the heels of a book I read recently so since it picked up where the last one left off, I'm right into it immediately!

Hope you can sleep now, it's not an easy feeling that you can't sleep.

Prayers you can get some rest. We are not doing anything much today, we're both tired ourselves. I see a nap in our future. Hope your knee feels better. Have a blessed day

I hope that you finally got to sleep. I hate it when I have a hard time falling asleep.

I hope that you did get to sleep and did get a good rest. I had to do the same thing last night, and started to read again until my eyes finally said "that's enough, go to sleep".

Glad you don't have to get up early and hope your pain eases soon. You've had a lot on lately so I guess it will take a bit of a toll on your body.

We had a guest staying in our home for 5 days, I am exhausted, so much cooking and cleaning. I hope you can rest well.
