A deafening castrophony of silence

This quote simultaneously captures what my insomnia has felt like over the last three to four weeks, and why I haven't discussed it in greater detail here:

"All good nights of sleep are alike. Each miserable night of sleep is miserable in its own way. You either close your eyes and, many hours later, open them, or you endure an idiosyncratic epic of waiting, trying, failing, irritation, self-sabotage and despair, then stand up at sunrise racked with war stories you don’t have the energy to tell."

From the New York Times Magazine.

And a gold star to Olga, my de facto sleep counselor, for showing me the article, and predicting in advance that I would love that quote.
