N is for Night

I used to have insomnia really badly. I could barely sleep, ever. If I had the time, I could generally take naps, but I rarely had time back when I had insomnia.
Now I sleep like a log. Now, that is, until tonight. I went to a different therapy group today. It's called "Trauma Care" and deals with, duh, trauma. There were so many things we talked about that triggered bad things for me. I can't go back. I won't.

And now here it is, 2:51 AM, and I am still awake. I have to get up to go to work in two and a half hours. That is not a lot of sleep, yo. The group leader said that not being able to sleep was because something traumatic had happened at night and insomnia is the body's was of protecting you. If you don't sleep, maybe nothing can hurt you.
I hope this doesn't last long. I don't think I can take it again.


  1. Sorry. That sucks. Maybe you aren't at a place where Trauma group could help? Maybe you'll never not be triggered in a group like that. I hope that your insomnia doesn't last. I wish I could tell you how I got past sleeping with the lights on or sleeping only during the day, but I don't really know how it happened. Goodluck.

    1. I think it would be very good for me to go to trauma group. But I'm not going to. It's too hard right now. Maybe later if I'm brave...


Don't make me talk to myself, yo.
