Right now I feel like a hopeless cause
Even though I know I'm not
Ever have one of those days where
You don't care about anything
You don't want to do what you know would help
And you wonder what it's going to take to ignite you to action?
That's me today
And yesterday
And..........
I can't seem to stay awake
The other day I even dosed off while standing up
Sometimes I wake up
And I wonder
"I don't remember falling asleep!"
Maybe I'm just trying to escape
Maybe sleeping is the only thing I know how to do anymore
I wonder if I'll ever wake up?

Debbie Dear,

Couple the probs in your poem with sleep apnea and prostatic urinary frequency. My alarm clock has a large blue light and falling off to sleep with the TV on is a daily occurence. It seems like the only deep sleep comes between 5am and Noon. (Shissh!) Snacking after 9pm is ususal for my bedtime routine.

Please HELP ME!
