HomeMom LifeInsomnia Sucks. March 29, 2009 Insomnia is a symptom of a sleeping disorder characterized by persistent difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep despite the opportunity. Insomnia is a symptom, not a stand-alone diagnosis or a disease. By definition, insomnia is “difficulty initiating or maintaining sleep, or both” and it may be due to inadequate quality or quantity of sleep. It is typically followed by functional impairment while awake. Insomniacs have been known to complain about being unable to close their eyes or “rest their mind” for more than a few minutes at a time. Both organic and non-organic insomnia constitute a sleep disorder. UGH. I cannot sleep. Talk about wanting to poke my eyeballs out. I have to be up in 4 hours and out of the house in 5. Laying here for the last 5 hours, tossing and turning, watching everything imaginable on On Demand – I just want to sleep! Giving up on the computer keeping me entertained (again, this is the 3rd time i’m closing the laptop). Wishing for some sleep. Tomorrow is Monday for Christ’s sake! -digital mom Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
