To Sleep, Perchance to Dream

I don’t remember the last time I slept more than eight hours. Usually I sleep between 5-6 hours for the past ten years. I wake up at 4:45 am to get ready for work and when I come home by 3:30 I’m tired and ready for a nap. Definitely I love taking naps. When I have the chance to take them, they make me feel rejuvenated. Some days I made my naps mandatory because without them I can’t function.


Do I have trouble falling asleep? Yes, especially when I’m tired, when I feel drained, or when I get the hot flashes. It’s an awful feeling.  I love to cuddle under my blanket with my fan facing me and it’s doesn’t matter if we’re in winter.


Do I remember my dreams? Yes, all the time. They’re vivid, incredible, and amazing and when I wake up I write it in my journal. The dreams I love the most are the one where my mom talks to me. Unfortunately I remember my nightmares too. They terrified me and I can’t get back to sleep. Yes, I write them in my journal too. I don’t understand why.
