So Tired

I know from experience that the body will (eventually) be unable to resist sleep. In fact, at bedtime, sleep pushes right past my body, tensed and poised for not sleeping.

Unfortunately, a few hours later, I'm wide awake and not sleeping anymore. My mind slips into microsleep, but refuses to tumble over the edge into full-blown slumber. In the past, power naps got me through it. Working in an office means no more naps.

My mind taunts me, too, reminding me I only have one opportunity for rest in twenty-four hours. Wish it was on my side (said in a dripping with sarcasm tone).

Have you noticed that fatigue makes everything hard?
