Tossin and Turnin

It is a strange habit I've grown into.

Every night, no matter when I go to sleep, I wake up and toss and turn in the bed. Back and forth, adjusting the pillow, trying to find a position, arrange the sheet, then back and forth, side to side without any rest.

It seems I wake up and can not stop thinking. Like a flashback of faces, phrases, songs, events, future plans, and past occasions. There is no theme to these thoughts just a random streaming of visions. Not a dream, for when I do go back to sleep I have the most bazaar dreams, but the tossing and turning time is a nightly wander into the subconscious.

Sometimes I get up and watch bad television. Sometimes I log onto the Internet, but only the people on the other side of the globe are awake. Sometimes I just toss and turn until I wear myself out.

I awake refreshed and after a cup of coffee and a bottle of water, I'm on my way, but I know tonight; I'll be tossin and turnin.

I am sure that the heat does not help.

I do the same, and age has something to do with it.

Gettin old ain't for sissies.

I often have the same problem. Let me know if you discover a remedy.

And it's not age because I'm not as old as you :)
