Functioning when you can’t function

Insomnia is a nightmarish reality hell. Believe me, I KNOW.

My job and much of my life’s work exists on the computer, through various media such as the iPhone and social media sites in addition which all buzz about electronically talking to each other in a matter of fashion that I would normally find stimulating and refreshing – and that’s all fine and dandy normally.

But lately there are several days I cannot possibly stare at a computer or even a TV screen, my mind can barely follow the simple (yet clever and witty) plot of a Modern Family episode let alone write an article about some crowning scientific achievement that involves 3 other people and their respective bosses and teams and whoever else needs to be thrown into the story for good press and or saving face.

None of that matters when your sleep schedule is jacked beyond belief and no one knows why. It’s been weeks of testing and no real answers. Perhaps my brain fogginess could be equated to celiac? Who knows! Any guesses at this point? I’ll go with anything.

The only way I’ve been able to relatively function, and I can only do so well for a few scattered days at a time, is that I save interesting links on my phone, magazine excerpts, and the opportunity to write when I am in this happy little place where I can actually be the true professional wordcrafter I am and write like a boss. Those are damn good days, and lately too few and far between. But have hope!

Even when your luck seems down there’s always a reason and always a way for things to get better, although it may seem unlikely and require patience. So, from my personal experience, hang in there and appreciate the fact that so many people love you and are vouching for you.
