365 Things to Smile About Day 192. I Stayed Awake!

I have noticed something about me.  The more stressed I am, the more easily I fall asleep during the day.  Not at night mind you...just in the daylight hours!  I am less than 48 hours from my certification exam and the closer it comes the harder it is for me to fall asleep when I go to bed and the easier it is for me to fall asleep during the day!   Because I fall asleep during the day I am WIDE AWAKE at night but unable to focus!  I will be so happy when this exam is done!

Anyway, I had to be up early today for clinic and I of course couldn't fall asleep last night.  I kept trying to convince myself that I needed to fall asleep and even did the count down of "If I fall asleep now I'll get X hours of sleep." and so on.  Well, my alarm went off and I was able to get up, go to clinic, got to class, go back to clinic and made it home and even managed to stay away another two hours before my eyes closed of their own accord!  Frustrating yes, but I am happy regardless!!  I was honestly convinced that I was going to do a face plant in class today I was fighting sleep so bad!  Lol!  Fortunately, I stayed awake and did not entertain my class with what I can only assume would have looked like me having some kind of spasm attack as I started to fall forward then either caught myself just in time or didn't catch myself and proceed to scare the living daylights out of myself!  Lol!

And so now I shall try to get some more studying in for the exam for the evening since I have already knocked out for an hour!
