Grief at night...

Some say grief is worse in the morning, I say at night.


Insomnia - of course we know grief impacts our sleep. We either cannot go to sleep, we cannot stay asleep and, this creates extra anxiety. Unfortunately, I know all about this. I do not sleep well and when I finally become exhausted, I will sleep 17 hours. No joke.

There are no distractions at night (for some). No work. No running errands. Nothing to think about buy why you are grieving in the first place.

You've lost a nighttime companion. Lezlie could kick me out of the bed as much as she kicked. I miss those cold feet and kicks, laying so close we would do fine in a twin bed.

It is dark. Darkness can impact our moods. It can zap motivation. No one wants to do anything at dark except sleep and we all know how that is working for us.

Our brains won't shutdown. 989 million tabs open and they go back and forth.

You're tired. You cannot hold it together at the end of the day.

Of course there are things to do but, will they work.

Practice good sleeping habits, I laugh at this because as of today, they haven't helped me.

Do not go to bed too early. Do not work 8 hrs come home and be in bed at 7 p.m. Just dont.

Do not let stress bother you. Harder to do than say but, it is worth a try.

Write. Thats what I do but, so far no good.

Talk to someone.

Social media - get off of it in the evening.

Find something to do in the evenings. Book club, something.

Maybe grief will be more bearable at night, it is worth a shot.

Psalms 94:19 "In the multitude of my thoughts within me Thy comforts delight my soul."

The righteous perish, and no one takes it to heart;  the devout are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil.  Those who walk uprightly enter into peace, they find rest as they lie in death.

Isaiah 57:1-2
