Sleepless in bed.....

Dear fellow cosmic traveller,

Have you lain in bed, wanting to fall asleep, but waiting and waiting and still not getting that blissful sleep that you are craving for?

You toss and turn, do breathing exercises, count backward and try all sorts of tricks to get your mind to shut up and allow you to fall asleep.

You suddenly feel lonely and helpless and want to trade anything for that bliss of going into a deep restful sleep.

The night of a sleep-deprived person is tortuous and painful. And many people do not bring themselves up to acknowledge it, or talk about it, let alone seek professional help.
