Another Sleeplessness Night

I watch the day merge into night, night into dawn. It’s another sleepless night. I wake feeling emotionally wrung out.  Insecure of who I am meant to be.  Close to tears because sleep is an unpleasant activity plagued by endless night terrors haunting me. How I wish it could be different.

I feel irritable this morning.  Annoyed and frustrated at another night of troubled slumber. I don’t know what to do with the little sleep I find myself getting.  I feel like I might break down and cry. I want to scream and beg God for another good night’s  sleep.  Why is it such a marathon to sleep? Why such a challenge?

I remember when my son died – I would wake multiple times of night terrors. I would wake up drenched in my own sweat.  I would wake up crying.  I wake up crying now. All sense of control gone. Just a wild night with the terror of haunted nights lurking behind everything. I do not like the dark.  The dark is a scary place.

I don’t know how to explain this feeling I have inside of me. This feeling of growing anxiety like a ticking time bomb.  My nerves are fried.  I feel anxious about the work situation.  Anxious about he and he finding me. It makes me weary. It’s like this sense of doom has fallen upon me. And I feel very alone as I battle sleeplessness.

I wake feeling anxious.  Heart in my throat at the prospect of another day at work.  I do not enjoy it. The atmosphere is stale with bullying. And no-one cares.  The hard working ones get pulled up for every mistakes they make. The slackers get away with everything.  Typical really. This is like a death sentence.

I feel like I am drowning in overwhelming exhaustion.  I just want to drift off into a peaceful slumber for once. But I cannot.  The shadows haunt. The shadows paralyse. The shadows laugh. My discomfort real. I feel uncomfortable in my skin. Restless. Nervous. Tired. Irritable.

God I just want a good night’s sleep for once. A break from the challenging work environment.  Rest for my unsettled soul. Is that possible? Will there be the perfect-fit job for me? Or is all this studying a waste of time too? God I need you.  I feel anxious and uneasy today. My spirit is unsettled and I don’t know how to calm it. I just want to be loved. I want to be cared for.  I don’t want to be scared anymore.  But I feel uneasy like there is a pending doom. Please bring peace flooding back to my spirit.

 

One thought on “Another Sleeplessness Night

  1. Hannah. I pray for deliverance from fear. I pray for peace for you as you rest or sleep. I pray for a new work situation. I pray for the endless trials to end, dear Lord. I don’t think I have ever met anyone who’s had more trials than you. All I can think is God must have a very powerful ministry ahead for you.. “We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God’. Acts 14.22
