oh, cool, experiencing that thing again where it feels like my heart is skipping a beat once in a while and I can't get any decent sleep

re: ph- 

the same thing happened earlier this year but ended up largely going away on its own during the summer. I hate that my body just randomly does things like this

re: ph- 

sure would be nice to have any form of income or health insurance right now

re: ph- 

not that it would really matter. back when I did have insurance, I went to the doctor seeral times for some weird inexplicable health issues, and every time they told me I was fine. like, sure, that stabbing pain in my ear that STILL rears its ugly head 10 years later is "nothing"

I hate how difficult it is to just... sleep. I am completely exhausted. I NEED a good 8+ hours of solid, uninterrupted sleep, but I'm not allowed to have that for a variety of reasons. it's too hot, my back hurts, I have sudden heartburn, I have a bad dream, I have to pee, my brain just says "nah", someone's knocking on the front door, someone's banging pots and dishes around in the kitchen, maintenance is blowing leaves at 8 in the morning, someone's sitting in their car with the radio blaring

I end up lying in bed until 3 or 4 in the afternoon, trying to eke out just a few minutes of sleep here and there, and by the time I get up the sun's going down

I can't use a sleep mask or earplugs because I usually remove them in my sleep and proceed to lose them in the sheets or under the bed

re: ph- 

@RustyRetro *hugs* I hope you can get some sleep.

Do you have a noisemaker like a fan and black-out curtains?

re: ph- 

@XerTheSquirrel I have two fans going, one by my door, the other on my nightstand. no blackout curtains (yet), though
