I am certain I said it in a previous post, but I say it again:
I am sleep deprived!!! Which is very exhausting. Every morning, even when I get to go to bed at 8pm, I have to force myself out of bed!
Not because I am a I-love-to-sleep-in sort of type, no, because I get easily disturbed!
Have you watched the movie “Trainwreck”? The scene when Amy Schumer stays over at the doctors?
THAT is so me!
My husband claims he can’t fall asleep when he can’t touch me, so he often puts at least one foot on my leg (where I often wonder, how is it he says he can’t fall asleep without touching me, when he is wearing socks in bed?!? He can’t really feel anything anyway!).
When he does so, I am wide awake, eyes like saucers, waiting for him to fall asleep and when he finally does, I either move his leg over (but that only works when he is already snoring), or I move to the edge of the bed.
It all started when I was a little baby. I would not fall asleep on the arm or in the same bed as my parents, they had to put me in my own cot! So when they put me down, I fell asleep without whinging and that lasted for at least 10 hours!
My parents where so spoiled (at least as long I was an innocent, helpless baby), they often had to check if I was still alive and wake me up!!!
As long I was in my own bed, nothing could wake me up. I had a very deep sleep. Early to bed and early back up throughout my teens and into adulthood.
At least as long I was single!
When I was in a relationship, my sleep got disturbed by unruly, other, not to me belonging body parts!
Sure when you are still in your “honeymoon-phase”, it feels cosy and you want to touch your new man’s/woman’s body constantly, but when it comes to MY sleep, it is no fun!
So what did I do?! I pretended to be all loved up and comfy, just to wait for the guy to fall asleep so I could roll over to my side (at least if the bed was big enough) to get at least a bit of sleep myself.
I am sorry, but I just can’t do it! Never could, never will!
I don’t want to get breathed at and I don’t want to have way to warm body parts slung over me.
I need my sleep! Sleep is important! I don’t get much as it is!
So dear God, do you hear me? If so, can you send someone down at nighttime who could prevent hubby from sneaking up on me? Hm…. I can’t quite hear you but presume you got my message and granted my wish!
