Sleepfighting

7 days ago, I forced myself to move over 18″ towards the center of my mattress when I went to bed. I’ve done it every night since, as well as during the daylight naps I require on most days to function. The resulting change in my sleep has been unexpectedly freaky.

Think what you will about my not-exactly-PTSD-but-still-post-traumatic sleep habits up till now: at least making my bed was easy. Anybody who sleeps right at the edge of their bed because they’re scared of the person on the other side…let’s just say, even in cases where the frightening person is no longer actually there, you still tend to not disturb the sheets much.

Though I’m realizing you can create one helluva sunken spot in your mattress.

Let's make it a conversation! Your thoughts?
