My name is Tiago and I’m writing for the 1st time here on the Blog.
I struggled with Insomnia for a long time.
I would say to myself. Today is the day. I’m going to get my sleep back on track
I would have dinner. Around 7 p.m. A light one, so i wouldn’t go to bed with a full stomach.
I would turn off all the electronic devices, put the cellphone in airplane mode, shut down bright lights and just put a dim one.
I would put some deep relaxing music, some lavander oil in the dispenser and tried to breath deeply.
10 p.m. I started to yawn and feeling tired. That’s when i usually say : “I’m going to sleep now”.
But as soon as my eyes closed : the tiredness would instantly disappear.
And then the stress and anxiety would pop-up. The hours passed and i would just get angry and frustrated saying to myself, will this nightmare ever end?
Usually it would be around 5 to 6a.m, due to pure exhaustion, i would fall asleep.
Not that it did anything good, because 7 a.m and off to work i go.
With the thoughts in my head – “Will this nightmare ever come to an end”?
In a next post i will write a little bit of what i found out that made me overcome this problem. But this first post is just an attempt to write my old personal hell
We’re looking forward to the next post!
