I Must Have Slept Some...

....it's just that I don't remember.  I do remember staring at the digital clock, hour after hour, and noting how slowly it changes.

   I do remember thinking about things in my life.  At least there were pleasant things.  The night time hours are so long.  It was like lying in the re-hab hospital night after night, passing time.

   I do remember getting  up to go to the bathroom...

and getting up to go to the bathroom...

and getting up to go to the bathroom.  Well, I am a male, eighty-three years old and that's what we do.

   Is this insomnia, or do I just not notice when I have slept? Oh, it is nice to have so many wonderful things to think about.

   But I'd rather sleep.

Try not to nap during the day(it's hard-- cause I love my nap) but maybe it will help you at nightime to sleep better.And nothing to drink after 6PM
Have a good day

I have been having it rough also with sleeping mostly due to pain.

I think you are right about the sleeping thing.  And having your sleep interrupted by bathroom calls doesn't allow for good rest.
