Feels like I'm at my breaking point. Like at full breaking point, I need sleep.
Hugo hasn't been well & he's not slept for well over a week - before that : Yes i was in Italy (Child free) however I wasn't laying back & relaxing, we pretty much backpacked over Italy through Pisa, Florence & Venice. It was amazing but exhausting, Then add the flight being delayed so not getting home till gone 2am...
Last night I lay there after getting up with Hugo at 12 he then woke every 10-15minutes.

You can't just go to bed when you feel like it when your a parent.

At the moment all I want to do is cry. Yep cry & cry & cry.
Insomnia & depression feed on each other. sleep loss often aggravates the symptoms of depression, depression can make it more difficult to fall asleep...
Sleep deprivation AGES YOUR SKIN :
Oh my god I know now why after having children my face has really suffered.
Bags under your eyes - check
Extra wrinkles - check
Sleepiness makes you forgetful :
Well you can say that again.... Sleepiness makes you forgetful.....
My days have all blurred into one very blurry day recently.
I try & put my milk into the dishwasher & my dirty bowl into the fridge.
I even forget when I've finished my coffee go to take a sip to UH OH IT's ALL GONE!
I recently read that lack of sleep may increase risk of death ...
I don't fancy talking about dying anytime soon so I'll ignore that 'fact'.
Lack of sleep kills your sex drive :
