Anybody awake and want to chat right now? Can't sleep...

Anybody awake and want to chat right now? Can't sleep... Erin: Every night I'm like this.  Each time I wake up it hits me like a ton of bricks.
Re: Anybody awake and want to chat right now? Can't sleep... mine: what is up ?
 Re: Anybody awake and want to chat right now? Can't sleep... Erin: Hi,
I call this my witching hour. Wake up at 1am and then for good at 4.
Can't get thoughts out of my head for long enough to relax.
I am almost at a point now where I want to ask him to come and stay for one night for this has been going on for 2.5 weeks now...
 Re: Anybody awake and want to chat right now? Can't sleep... Mart: I know what you mean.  I slept ok last night, but most nights are awful because of all the dreams and thoughts of him.  I wake up almost every hour.  Sleeping pills did not help. 

My ex stayed over one evening so I can go to bed very early and sleep.  He suggested it and I accepted.  I slept like a baby for a few hours.  When I woke up, he was sleeping.  I looked at him sleep and felt worst.  He woke up and left.  I felt even worst and did not sleep at all the rest of the night.


 Re: Anybody awake and want to chat right now? Can't sleep... dgiirl: Hey Erin,

Even tho it's very tempting, dont ask him to stay the night.  Right now you need to implement no contact as much as possible.  Everytime you break it, you return back to zero.  The longer you implement NC, the more pain you will feel, but the stronger you will become.  But if you contact him, you'll reset all the work you've done and go back to the beginning once he's left.  Worse case scenario he'll tell you something awful on the phone and that wont help you at all.  If he shows any progress of wanting to reach out to YOU, then see where it goes, but do not reach out to him.

Dont worry about sleeping the whole night away.  If it's possible take a few power naps during the day, even if it's at work, if there's a sofa you can nap on, take it.
