I haven’t had much sleep at all since my last EMDR session, I either lay awake and let my head batter me all night or I have around 4 hours of broken sleep, sleep that is flooded by memories and nightmares. I have also started sleepwalking and eating.. I haven’t sleptwalked since I was a child.
I haven’t got much of appetite during the day so I think I’m getting hungry in a semi conscious state and going off in search of food. Last night however was the weirdest night yet! I remember waking in the living room around 3am surrounded by food packets and little memory of eating or getting out of bed.
This morning I woke up in my bed full of facts about Henry VIII! never in my life have I been interested in Kings or Queens of England and I certainly didn’t pay attention in school, but this morning I woke up talking about Henry’s mistress Bessie Blount and his illegitimate son Henry Fitzroy!! 😂😂😂 I knew how long he was married to Catherine of Aragon, what she died of, I knew all about Ann Boleyns sister and exactly what Ann was charged with, and a whole other bunch of stuff I even knew stuff about his childhood!! I cannot explain it at all, I didn’t know any of that stuff when I went to bed.
My mind is officially blown! I just need to figure out what the hell I was up to last night and try to get maths stuck into my brain the same painless way! I wonder if it’s an EMDR thing, sleep deprivation or my brain just showing me it’s totally in charge of what I think about?! Either way I am both amazed and amused!
