I wish, I wish, I wish.........

........   that I could have a good night of sleep.

I am not talking about the hours,

I am talking about the quality of sleep.

FOR EXAMPLE I took to my bed at about 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday 25th Jan.  I awoke at 5:45 .a.m. this morning Jan 26th.

Sounds good eh?

But those hours were so restless.

1. My limbs have a mind of their own. I do not simply have restless leg syndrome. Both arms and both legs "jerk" like crazy, such jerking wakes me up.

2.  I call out (nay yell) in my sleep.   Those yells wake me up. Some of the yells are complete sentences.    Some are all but incoherent words.

3.  I laugh out loud in my sleep, and such laughing awakens me.

4. I worry in my sleep ( or in my restless waking periods).  For instance last night I spent semi-somnolent times all worried because I could nor mentally locate three streets in the Bedminster area of my home City of Bristol, U.K.   Where, I kept wondering, are Parson St., Phillip St., and Merrywood Road?  As if it mattered!


Oh for a good night's sleep, measured not by hours, but by deep refreshment fot my body, mind, and soul.
