2am nightmare

Every month or two, something shitty happens.

I wake up in the middle of the night—usually around 2 or 3 o clock—and I’m wide awake. Each time, I think it’s like 30 minutes before my alarm is supposed to go off. Then I check the time and panic.

I’ll walk out of my bedroom and read or listen to a podcast. Something light until I get sleepy.

Eventually, I get tired again. But that tends to take another two to five hours. If I fall back asleep, it’s for another hour at most. Then I have to get up and start my day.

That happened today. I feel like a zombie. And I never know what to do.

I canceled my last call just to take a nap.

Anyone else experience this?
