Sleeping Angry


For as long as I’ve been alive, I’ve always been told not to go to bed mad.  I thought this was because you never knew what could happen in the eight hours or so that you were sleeping.  Go to bed mad at your parents and wake up to find that one has died or something similarly horrendous.  And that might be true, but…

Last night, I was very irritated when I went to bed.  The specifics aren’t important, my family is just as dysfunctional as every other family on the planet and because we are family, we annoy the shit out of each other at times.  It was one of those times.

I slept all night long, never waking up.  However, I didn’t rest.  My dreams were angry.  I woke up exhausted and in a bad mood with a headache lurking on the horizon.  Even as I write this, I’m still in a bad mood, I’m still very tired and the lurking headache has hit.

I have shit to do today.  I have shit to do tonight.  I need to write.  I have dart league tonight, first night of the season and I’m already a player down (slipped a disk).

Yet my bad mood and lack of restful sleep is impacting my entire day.  Instead of writing, all I can think about is taking a nap.  Blech… What a waste… This is why you don’t sleep angry.

  1. Yeah…I feel for you…it’s totally about your sleep and not the other persons. Plus if things are left unresolved they tend to become bigger and what started as a small argument turns into a giant escalating monster and you forget what the little thing was that made you mad.

    • It is impossible to forget that my sister thinks the world is completely about her and her needs and everyone else should just cater to her whims and flights of fancy… but I understand your meaning.

      I have never had an argument with anyone other than her, that was unresolved by sleepy-time. As a matter of fact, had it been anyone else, we would have sat down and talked it out before we were allowed to go to bed.
