I’ve been having vivid dreams every night. I would say 2-3 of them, and I always remember the last 2 upon awakening. It’s often the last dream that jolts me awake, leaving me feeling restless yet unable to go back to sleep peacefully.
It wasn’t until I started vlogging daily that I realized how persistent my sleep problems were. They’re debilitating. They partially have to do with my inability to maintain a consistent sleep-wake schedule, and partially because I’m an overthinking wreck.
Many a time I’ve thought about drinking coffee, which would treat the foggy morning hours in the morning—at the expense of a normal bedtime. I do not wish for my sleep schedule to become regulated by a substance either. This leaves me with treating the real issues that are keeping my mind awake even during those supposed REM hours.
