Here it is 4am and I’m wide awake. You thought I said I was tired? I did! I’m purely exhausted. My tired is tired. Why must this happen all the time?????
As you lay sleeping well, I lay here with my eyes open.
As you lay snoring, I lay counting sheep.
As you lay drooling, I lay in excruciating pain keeping me from closing my eyes for a second.
This is agony! This is torture! I wouldn’t wish this on my greatest enemy, if I had one. Everything hurts from head to toe. My neck is stiff and throbbing; my head pounding; my arms too heavy to lift; my elbows, knees, ankles, knuckles and toes are aching; my feet and hands swollen and I am just miserable. How can anyone sleep with all of this going on?
People wonder why you are always tired. Well this is why. It is simply impossible to get proper rest in this condition.
You know what though…
Life still goes on as time waits for no one, so you have to push to make it through your days.
You do it though! You find things to do to help you make it through. You find things that holds your attention relieving the stress and anxiety of being unable to sleep.
What I have grown to realize is, I’m stronger than I give myself credit for being. I endure a lot of pain and I keep going. I’m faced with sleepless nights, but I still get up in the morning. I deal with pain 24/7, but I haven’t and won’t give up!
I’m sure if you really think of your life and the things you have to endure, you will realize you too are stronger than you give yourself credit for!
Despite what you are going through, celebrate the victory of your incredible strength; stay focused and you will make it through!!!!
