Another sleepless night

United States

Lately, this past month, I have been unable to sleep on Saturday nights at all. I'm up until 6/7am and then I can lay down for a couple hours. My sleep cycle is seriously out of whack. Most days, I'm up until 3 then I take my uncle to work. Then I go back to bed until 7 when I take my daughter to school. Then I go back to bed until around 2pm, unless I have other things to do like go grocery shopping. Wednesdays are the only day where I could go to bed at a decent time but it still takes me forever to get to sleep. And my weeks are the same every week. The only thing that changes are some of my work days. I hate winter. In spring and summer, even fall sometimes, if I can't sleep, I go out walking. I will take my dog and walk for hours until I'm tired enough to go to bed. The fresh air and all the walking make it so I can go to bed before 1am. I really wish it was spring already or even summer when it gets hot but the kids are out of school lol.

Thank you. It doesn't help that when I'm at my sisters if I yell at my daughter, she jumps right on her phone like she has to report back to someone about everything I do.

You have the schedule very busy and it will be very difficult for you do the normal sleep.

I know and it doesnt help matters when my daugther gets sassy with me. I've only had a few hours of sleep and she slept wrong so now her shoulder and neck hurt but somehow thats my fault.

@gaianoor She's 16. and I tried to help her because I've had a stiff neck before so when I was trying to help her, she wanted to pinch me and yell in my face.

That's awful,you must be so busy.Not having enough sleep can cause negative effects to our health.I feel you because I have shifting work schedule and have little sleep every now and then.However,winter works the other way for me: I always feel sleepy,refusing to go out of my bed sometimes.You must find other ways to keep you busy when you can't sleep.Maybe reading books can help.I always feel sleepy when I'm reading.

I've been trying to get things ready for my next pearl party but there's only so much to get ready as I'm still waiting for the rest of my supplies to be delivered. Of course after this next party, I dont know if I will still have the pearl business as I dont have anyone else that wants to have a party. Other than that, I don't really have much to do unless you count working on a few of my stories. I'm hoping that this is the year that I finally publish one.
