Overtired or Drunk?

Some of my friends know that we’ve been struggling a ton lately with my son, Alex, who has autism. He’s regressed, been super aggressive, extremely hyper active and not sleeping. The not sleeping part is truely the worst part. It used to be that he would wake up around 3:45am almost every day and would run around the house and yell for an hour or two and then go back to sleep.  This – while extremely annoying – was doable because even though we were up in the middle of the night, I could usually get him back down and I could get a few more hours of sleep. But lately, he’s NOT been going back to sleep.  And he’s waking up at different hours. 2:30am was the very worst. It’s making me lose my mind.

With the lack of sleep I’ve had lately, I’ve been making stupid mistakes and not feeling myself at all. Someone once told me that suffering from lack of sleep was just like being drunk, but I’m not feeling it…  Here’s the difference that I’ve noted so far:

1.  Taco Bell at 3am doesn’t seem like the best option EVER

2.  I have not been tempted to text ex boyfriends late at night

3.  I don’t think I can dance

4.  Ugly people do not look attractive to me… yet

So there you go – being over tired is nothing like being drunk – being drunk is much more fun 🙂
