Twelve midnight: Tracing the blades as fan's swoosh takes over the silence, dead blank ceiling and I lie face to face.
One am: Those dreams, mistakes, regrets, wishes crawl their way from somewhere back of the mind to the front. Will I ever walk the fancy streets? Should I have been this straightforward to him? Is this really the place I want to be at? What will I wear in the morning? Could the day have been more useful?
Dose off. Wake up. Dose off. Wake up
Six am: Finally! nervous responses shutting down, my head is tired. I'll fetch some good sleep now.
Seven am: Third time snoozing the alarm, I can't do this. Want to hide beneath the covers, people spill; you look tired. What are eye bags about? Are you stressed? No! I'm in the state of chronic insomnia. This takes away sensation from my limbs when I force drag myself through the days. They: cmon it's nothing.
Every third individual is suffering from this due to stress/anxiety/physical unrest/emotional and behavioural disturbances resulting in clinical disorder. A general consensus has developed from population-based studies that approximately 30% of a variety of adult samples drawn from different countries report one or more of the symptoms of insomnia: difficulty initiating sleep, difficulty maintaining sleep, waking up too early, and in some cases, nonrestorative or poor quality of sleep
Let's hear people out, try to comfort them for they're fighting an inner fight that brings to the point of wanting to kill yourself when you're sleepless for five straight days/night. It's not something to hide, if you relate, start with helping yourself. We need to work on this apparently small yet very important issues to uplift our communities and enhance their collective productivity!
Tossing coin, will it be another night of sleeplessness?! ✨
