The Inevitable Surrender

The night before last I couldn’t sleep, nor have I been able to sleep more than three to five hours a night for weeks. Meditation usually cures insomnia but whatever hormonally has been happening with me since I was pregnant has made me an anomaly. For three and a half hours, I tried pranayama, meditating, body scanning, counting backwards, every time I started to feel sleep coming on, I’d get all excited and it would wake me up.
