  • I've had insomnia for as long as I can remember.

    I have always thought of it as 'extra time' to be productive in. I think I've achieved a lot of things in life that I never would have done if I wasn't insomniac.

    Sometimes I bake. Tonight it was a beer bread recipe that I've never tried before. It's soft, like a cross between bread and cake and has a beery aroma and slight beer tang to it.

    The house suddenly smells like a nightclub though. I'm not sure that's really going to help me off to sleep. Still.. there's plenty bread to chew on if I fancy a midnight snack!
