Better Sleep Council Survey Shows 51 Percent of Americans Are Losing Sleep over Stress

I have had a good relationship with you, that has gone on for years. You seem to have abondoned me. I have done everything i can think of to regain control.
I washed the high thread count sheets you insist I buy to keep you covered,
I bought new pillows to adorn you. I Turned you each season.

I even do things to help myself thinking it is me not you that has been lacking in the relationship. I take the little white pills the Dr gave me. Stay up later so to see if that may help. But for some reason. You are making it imposible for me to sleep. Plain and simple it must be you.

It cant be,
The constant pain in my back or the stabbing pain in my side some nights.
The words and music going through my head from the movie Mamma Mia that we watched 3 times in 4 days..
The worry for world peace,
The pain of the young mother who lost her baby in a tragic accident yesterday.
Worry for my sons job.
My daughter and her husband not being able to have another baby.
Sarah getting sick again.
My sister starting a new and different venture in life.
Friends health and well being.
My other sisters pain and anger eating her away. 
My 2 brothers out of work.
Last night the list went on and on.
Many other Things that just won't turn off inside my head.

Is there a way to stop it? You used to be enough. I have had this problem but never so sever my
little pills didn't help.

I tried to replace you last night with the couch.. oh no go! that was a bad idea!

Just maybe I need to pray extra hard to heavenly father to ease my mind. Ease the burdens of everyone else I seem to take on.

I can't help but do that.

I am not sure why.

that what makes me.   ME.

If you can't sleep, then get up and do something instead of lying there worrying.  It's the worry that gets you, not the lack of sleep.  ~Dale Carnegie
