Normal conversation??

  I seem to have totally lost the ability to what most people would call a "normal conversation" I don't know whether this was a gradual process or it has just come about but I don't seem to be able to speak to people anymore!!  Let me explain. I met an old friend in town … Continue reading Normal conversation??

My insomnia and sleep kit!!

Well today I've been getting back to being a bit more crafty, it's always hard for me now to admit that I cannot do as much crafting as I would like to but with a lot of adaptation I can still do some things.  Cake baking and decorating is one of my loves, I love … Continue reading An unusual request to put the crafty back into the CraftyInsomniac

Why making fun of me, for falling asleep, hurts so much….

You might think it's funny when I fall asleep at 5pm or throughout the day, you think it's hilarious that I can't stay awake through a t.v. programme or a film but let me explain why that happens. Let me explain why it hurts when you think it's so funny that I am always tired. … Continue reading Why making fun of me, for falling asleep, hurts so much….
