Insomnia has many faces KnightLight.
When I had it, I used to stay up all night reading books, writing poetry, or drawing in my notebook. Yes, my eyes were grainy, and I DESPERATELY
needed to sleep, but at the same time, my mind felt like it was on overdrive. I would get about six hours sleep total, within a week during that
period, mostly on a Saturday night, into Sunday morning.
The thing is, this situation is actually quite dangerous to be in, because it means that your mind is producing chemicals at the wrong time,
stimulating a mind which should have been rendered into replenishing and healing sleep. Having the neurochemicals associated with wakeful cogitation
flooding your brain for prolonged periods, can induce more than mere delusions and hallucinations on a temporary basis, but can also result in full
blown psychosis in some cases, depending on the genetic, environmental, and psychological factors acting on the person involved.
Although I do not wish to alarm you over much, I should state that in my view, the best thing to do would be to consult a medical professional if you
find yourself unable to climb down and sleep. This kind of insomnia can be the result of neurochemical imbalances which themselves can be indicators
of other, sometimes serious neurophysical, or sometimes glandular problems in the offing, so it is really worth getting some professional advice about
the situation, rather than just soldiering on.
