Couldn't Sleep

So a lot has been going on in my life recently, but we will get to that another time but for now, I gotta tell you the situation that I am in right now SO I have a phone call that is happening in...I have no idea and that is the biggest problem. I typically sleep during the mornings, from like 6am-12:30pm roughly. But knowing that I was going to have a call, assuming that the possible time this could start would be at 8 or 9am, I was like hmm I"m going to go to sleep early! You know...because 4am is early I was actually tired because it was an exhausting day for me and I had just gone through some emotions, so I was tired. I was getting all cozy, did my little nightly ritual of playing a few games before I sleep, and I was about to go to sleep when BOOM A storm comes on in, and this is a monsoon, so a monsoon is nothing to just ignore and enjoy the rain noises. No no...when your bed moves because the wind is so fast it is shaking your house...it is scary! So, I couldn't sleep with that, so I started watching some Tiktoks. It took a while for the storm to finally calm down and it eventually did. I spent another maybe 15 minutes just to make sure it didn't start up again and I tried to go to sleep and I couldn't... I would watch more tiktok videos and then sleep and then nope! Finally it is around 7am, I watch one last video...it was one of my favorite videos and I couldn't sleep because I was laughing too much and welp...I am like, I can't sleep now because what if I get the phone call?!?! So..now I am awake. and for anyone who is asking, well why can't you just have your phone next to you as you sleep? Well, this doesn't happen all the time, but sometimes I will be in deep enough sleep that I can even hear a firetruck and an ambulance plus several cop cars go by...you think I am going to hear my phone? Pffft nooo So, I am paranoid that I won't hear my phone go off and then I have to go through this nightmare again and I don't want to! So I am awake and here I am! We're doing great...yeahh... I sense a little bit of caffeine in my future, not too much, but a little bit.

I hope the call comes soon so you can go to bed and rest easy.

I'm that way too, but I also make good use of Do not disturb, so I don't have to deal with calls texts or notification sounds when I don't want them. With as rough as you had it last night, tonight might be better.

Yes. Sometimes even if we've wanted to sleep but due to different disturbances such as the rain, videos, etc. The sleep will be forgotten. My wife always told me during the time I should sleep, drop your phone and sleep.
