It is 1am or 2am or 3am or 4am and you are awake staring at the ceiling or constantly fidgeting, trying to get comfortable.

Your mind churns over your worries like a washing machine on full cycle and you feel all alone.

You want to press the stop button in your brain and think of nothing and fall back to sleep, but no, the thoughts are all entangled down in the soapy cycle of worry and fear.

Are you alone? I am sure many reading this will relate, if not nightly but maybe weekly or monthly.

In the early hours every little thought is magnified a thousand times and the longer you are awake the worse everything feels.

Maybe just knowing we are part of the club will help us relax a bit and maybe sleep.

So, hands up who wants to join the early morning club and why?

A Moodscope member.
