I woke up coughing at 4:30 AM. Then my brain started spinning worry. I tossed around. Tried to think happy thoughts. Instead, in my mind, I wrote chapters, cleaned out closets, donated clothes, sold stuff on ebay, searched for work, redesigned my garden, painted my trim, scrubbed my floors, finagled finances, begged the universe for peace, tried to picture calm (whatever that looks like) and eventually gave up and got dressed.
There's got to be a better way to deal. What do you do when you can't sleep?
