Thanks world, I am pretty sure my studio assistant needs have been filled! Thanks to all of you who sent me your info. Get ready for a lot more art from me.
Last night was the first one in about a month that I enjoyed seven hours of un-interrupted sleep, without drugs, or sobbing in the middle of the night with panic "why can't I just sleep already!" I went to see a specialist yesterday, he basically gave me great advice, no drugs (good news!). I can't believe it, I feel like I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. A lot of people I have confided in have admitted to also suffering from occasional, debilitating insomnia (really? you too? Oh thank you for sympathising with me...soooobbb). Do you? What do you do to help yourself?
I am so looking forward to painting today, can't get to the studio fast enough. 1/2
