The nightmare of insomnia

hELLo, wEbKin. 

I love sleeping. In fact, napping is my favorite past time. If I could I would nap with my eyes wide open so that I could see who is having a good laugh watching.

At times, I would stay awake overnight even when not touching coffee for days. So, I couldn't fully blame this beany drink for the predicament it had inflicted on me. In fact, no one dares blame whoever weaponized coffee, at all. It's no easy task trying not to rely on sleeping pills either; I rarely pray to conventional medicine for my salvation. 

Insomnia can be a nightmare especially when I needed to get up for work or for an early appointment. It makes you feel like a floating ghost all day long. It gives you a glimpse of the back of people's head for the first time, unto the darkest corner of their subconscious, watch them secretly scheme against the rat race. It makes you hear colleagues talk about your worn out face behind you. Honestly, it makes you feel like you have suddenly acquired some special powers from another dimension, and that any moment from the time you step out of your home to the time you face the world all hell will break lose if people try to mess up with you.

On a lighter note, insomnia gives you the opportunity to finish a book in one sitting or go to a marathon of your favorite TV series in less than a day. As they say, if you can't beat them, join them...wiTH a bOwL oF pOpCoRn.
