Tossing and Turning

sleep-maskSleep…..ah, sleep. It should be oh so simple. After a long, hard day, a good night’s sleep should happen instantly; jump into bed, and the minute my head hits the pillow..zzzzzz. Unfortunately, that’s a pretty rare occurrence in my world.

Even as a young girl I had trouble sleeping. None of the rest of my family could understand it. They’d all go to bed and instantly fall asleep. I, on the other hand, would regularly spend big chunks of each night awake, tossing and turning, and trying to get some sleep.
