What bothers me the most after a night of little or no sleep (like last night)?
It is not the way my body feels like a bag of cement that needs to be dragged around.
It is not the occasionally mindless decisions my fuzzy brain makes.
It is not the lack of drive to tend to anybody else’s needs (i.e. making dinner for my family or checking in with a friend whose husband had unexpected surgery.)
It is not the lack of confidence in any writing I do.
It is not even the way I can’t even pretend for others that I’m fully present.
What bothers me the most is that if I take a nap, I may make it harder to get a good night’s sleep tonight, and my mind is too tired to figure out if it is worth risking another night of insomnia for the rest that my body is currently craving.
