Pressured to sleep

I slept just about 2 hours last night.  The odd thing was I was already lying in bed by 9 and yet I didn’t dozed off.  I can feel my body breaking down but then my mind is drifting to a lot of thoughts. Thoughts about work, about my family, about my bills, just about everything that’s going on in my life.

All the ideas about work just splattered and they were so incredulously genius that I had to get a pen and paper to jot them down.  I decided against opening my laptop as it will just tempt me to work.  It almost cried and got pissed off with myself as I can’t sleep.  I was an insomniac two years ago as I was working during the night but after I quit that job I was able to sleep well. But after I got a day job my sleepless nights have started again.  Slacking around made me sleep well, but then, I have no right to slack around as I have bills to pay and a family to support.  Ugh, life.
