Ugh. I had it last night. Probably champagne induced. I got water, went to the bathroom. Tried 150+ sleep positions. Thought about all the changes I need to make to the bed. Wondered if I have cancer. Wondered if my face products actually work. Forced myself not to look at my phone. Thought about playing Candy Crush. Thought about working. Fell asleep.
