Afraid to go to sleep.



After the wee morning hour dream I had this morning, I'm tired.... so tired.... but I'm afraid to close my eyes. Today has been hectic, one I don't really care to elaborate on.

I long for peaceful sleep, but I fear closing my eyes. I feel like going to sleep is letting my guard down, which in turn makes me more vulnerable to the nasty blind sided attacks of PTSD. I hate it.

My husband's gone, glad he can find time to go out and have fun when I haven't been out of the house in months except to do the agonizing task of grocery shopping or going to the doctor.

Looking for peace and it's nowhere to be found.

Thank you pseudome, for the good thoughts. It seems I have no control over what I can do anymore. Depression, grief, anxiety, and all of the above seems to have taken over at some point when I wasn't looking.
